    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,😊👍👌

    Recently purchased an Equinox 800 from Graeme and Mel at Uneartheduk.
    First class service from them from start to finish and received some fantastic advice from the Uneartheduk Minelab Detexpert David ‘Tat’ Taylor. Couldn’t ask for better service and support!

    I’ve had the Equinox for just over two weeks now, have used it on a few occasions now and to be honest i don’t know why i never bought one earlier . The machine has brought my old fields alive a few of which were littered with hot rocks 🙁 This dosen’t pick them up unlike my previous machine so has virtually given me more area to search 🙂 .
    The service i received from the team at Unearthed was amazing from Graeme going through some settings to Melanie processing my order and having it delivered in 1 day fantastic service !! .

    I bought my Equinox 800 after discussing the options with Graeme. His advice was impartial, honest and he wanted me to have the most appropriate detector. We narrowed it down to 2 options and I opted for the Equinox as it was on offer with the15″ coil and would see me right for the future.
    This is an excellent detector, very capable and packed with functionality and configurable. I am extremely happy with it and also with the outstanding customer service from Graeme and Mel at Unearthed.

    I bought my first detector from Unearthed a few years back and slowly added bit to it after talking to Graeme & Mel re advice ect, At the beginning of this year I decided to upgrade to the Nox 800, again had some great no pressure advice from Graeme. The best thing I have ever done, what a great detector, you can use it straight out the box, or tweet it after your have got your head around it, much better finds ect, but I will say. It just loves Hammered coins. Thanks guys for all your help, and such a great company to deal with.

    I purchased this machine from Unearthed a few months ago and I absolutely love it, I was a little weary at first as I have only ever used my trusty T2 SE which as many will know, is a very simple machine to use. I had heard many reports from people giving up on the Nox 800 saying it was too difficult to learn, but, from my personal experience, I think this machine can be as easy or as complicated as you want to make it, as long as you are willing to put the effort in and learn the machine, it will bring great results. I would highly recommend this Detector to anyone, and the bonus of buying from Unearthed is the great customer service that comes with it.

    This is my second detector bought from unearthed, the guidance and advice offered is second to none.
    I’ve had my nox 800 out about 5 or 6 times now (unable to use as it was COVID-19 lockdown) and it is by far, a brilliant machine.
    This detector is literally a switch on, choose your mode to suit the land or beach you are on and go..it talks to you.. it’s easy enough to master and with simple adjustments in the settings can help even more..
    the machine adjusts to how you want it to run.
    I was a bit nervous thinking it was going to be complicated but it’s not.. like everything else, you have just got to use it.. then it becomes second nature.. there are plenty of detectorists who offer advice and various settings to try but you will figure those out for yourself in time.
    Great service from Graeme and Mel, who are always there to take a call and answer questions and advise.
    I highly recommend this as a second detector once you’ve decided detecting is for you.. I started out with a Garret. Moved to a teknetiks T2+, bought from unearthed under sound advice that suited my needs.. I felt like stepping up and again, sound advice, the nox 800 was the one for me.. I can see me using this for many years to come..

    Upgraded to an Equinox 800 a couple of months ago. Absolutely a fantastic machine. Still learning how it talks to me,but already finds are coming every outing. Unearthed set me on the road of detecting by supplying a Tecnectis Euro, which was at a price that if I couldn’t grasp handling the machine I had not spent a fortune,
    .Twelve months in I got my Equinox 800 and I am more than satisfied. Thank you Graeme and Mel for the guidance.

    Rang the shop between Xmas and new year expecting a message to find out when they were opening in the new year but instead the phone was answered and the man I spoke to gave a lot of time explaining any questions I had so place my order for the nox 800 and Minelab 35 finder ,arrived on time a few days later ,The time I was given on the phone and knowledge he had means I won’t go anywhere else for detecting things – top job
