    I won an equinox 800 from unearthed thank you to Graeme and Melanie for a quick and efficient service. it is an excellent machine so sensitive it loves small hammered coins as I found one on my first day using it also found a roman fibula it is easy to set up and use and loads of different setting to play around with to improve your find rate. Depth is good to the small hammered was a good 8 -10 inches down. you won’t regret buying one.!

    This is a truly brilliant detector and a top contender in my eyes.
    Graeme and Mel, as always, provided excellent service with sound advice and a speedy next day delivery.
    I had been detecting for a year and although extremely happy with the Patriot (another truly brilliant machine purchased from Unearthed) I wanted a detector that was fully waterproof, very proficient on the beach and to be honest, to up my own game. The Nox 800 following, sound advice was the one to have and they weren’t wrong.
    It looks great – very slick looking and not clunky. It’s very light but also feels solid and very comfortable. You know you’re holding something that has been researched well by experts in their field in conjunction with those actually in the field saving history.
    The Nox has a whole lot of power, features and performance. It is actually a remarkably user friendly machine that you can grow with. The factory settings are set as such to enable you to literally switch on and go until you both feel that you are ready to start tailoring it. It’s a machine for life. The wireless headphone kit that comes with the Nox are also of excellent quality and very comfortable which is also another very important factor.
    On my second venture out I found 2, yes 2, Lizzy half groats. This was on ground that I had already gridded last year. I only used factory settings. It has no issue picking out small targets at some serious depth even in noisy areas. It’s a joy to have total confidence in such a competent and intelligent machine.
    Thank you again Graeme and Mel – awesome job guys.

    Iv had a few detectors over the last few years a couple cost a few pounds. I bought the equinox about 8 weeks back, didn’t give it much time before ,thought it was all hype, still I tried a friends, I haven’t looked back since finding hammered on my permission that I have been over a hundred times with everything, the nox is finding hammered pennies down to 8/9 in on pasture and a lot more I would recommend this detector to anyone its light easy to use you can swing it all day and its deep make your detecting a bit easier and get the nox 800 👌

    Brilliant machine, used it only twice as I have only just brought it from unearthed and am already loving it, haven’t hit on any silver as yet but I know its only a matter of time, Just looking at the settings that fellow detorist have given me and you tube and also down loaded the PDF Manual, Just Can’t wait for my next detecting trip, so glad I brought the 800,😊👍👌
