Rear connectors look better and better placed  happy face happy face

could be wrong .. was wrong before once  happy face

So when are we ready for another upgrade with the AGB ?

BW has just told me the following:
1 is the original GB. MGB is manual ground balance. THS B. is the old BIAS. THS A is the old VOLUME. THRESHOLD ALL.

Its important to note that the AGB is NOT an auto tracking GB.

I think it should now be possible with the new rear plate to set up the QED with 2 noika speakers in  stereo and place them on each shoulder?

The pics below show detail of the "new model".
Please note that apart from the free upgrade available for all early models, the new model (variation actually) offers improvements in ergonomics but no improvement in detection distance over the early models.

It has been designed around the Detech handle that has much to offer re weight and collapsible down to 2 foot long.
Things to note:
The detector box mounted under the cuff helps to counterbalance the weight of the coil.
There are 2 * 18650 Lithium battery sockets at the rear with a protective cover. There is also a power in socket for those who want to do their own thing re powering. Additional side boards that attach with velco will be available. They hold 4 * 18650 batteries. With 4 per side and 2 at the rear and using 3400mAH cells detection time will be around 80 hours. Keep in mind that each additional cell weighs around 50g.
The whole front panel is backlit.
The early models can also be converted to this new format. The upgrade work is being outsourced so I don't know the prices yet.
Both 3.5mm and 1/4" audio sockets are mounted on the front endcap of the detector box.

The detector as shown with 2 battery cells and a 14" coil weighs just 2.1Kg

Hi
I like the upgraded version and I'm considering purchasing the QED. Is it possible to run a 3.7v battery with a boost power supply circuit with the qed. I have a 3.7v 10000mah lithium ion cell and charger.

The Booster would require a lot of filtering with some large electrolytic caps to get rid of any spikes/noise.

I like the way its evolving. Box and batteries under the arm-cuff should improve balance. Great job.

Had mine done with all the mods including the 4th button mod. Also had a 3.5 and a quarter inch inline audio sockets fitted; works a treat.

Good to know the mods are working well.
