Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"
"My QED is terrific. Lightweight, very sensitive and screams at me when it hits any target. The Detect shaft and the 11" ultra sensing coil is a top quality fitout. I attached an external speaker which added under 200gms of weight in total and still remains very well balanced so i never feel fatigued after many hours of swinging."

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/ is the  Australian distributor for the QED.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the approved retailer and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

That is a long list of parts. With this notification the major manufacturers will design with more modern parts, but old stock will stay around for many years. The tendency for old stock is to be cheaper.

The fundamental truth is that we need to keep up with the technological innovation, adapt or go extinct.

Prices of the higher-end opamps being phased out might actually increase because of speculative activity. Mainstream dealers usually drop prices on obsolete stock simply to clear inventory. But the more popular high-end opamps are not likely to stay in stock long enough, as people feverishly stock-up. Then we will also have to contend with China "vendors" re stamping common or garden opamps. Counterfeits are already a problem with some popular i.c's.

What if adapting means either using a less suitable part, or even having to learn how to roll my own solution. Shock and horror. I might have to learn stuff, instead of just plugging in what everyone else is using.

Maybe time to revisit some of Aziz's threads on parts tested for discrete front-ends.
