I think you need to ask Blip (Aussiedigs) 
As he controls everything QED

He's the star of the show.
It's called Blip syndrome..............  shocking

Since having the QED I have been interested to read people running a Gain of 6 or 8 when I had issues getting past a Gain of 2 or 3 before noise started creeping in and by a Gain of 6 the QED was unusable. 

Several people had suggested I send it back for a check up and lockdown provided that window of opportunity.  I sent it back to Howard, had some text message conversations about what I was experiencing, he called to say all fixed and it was back in the post 6 hours after he had received it.  Great service Howard, very pleased. 

Last Wednesday and again this morning I headed out with the 8X6 Sadie coil to spots that I had previously found small pieces of gold - generally in the .2 gram down to unmeasurable on my scales size. 

Prior to the fix I could run a Gain of 1, Mode 2 or 3, THS B 5 or 6 below Null and a THS A about 50 - I like to hear a Threshold.  More recently though I had tried THS B at Null or maybe 1 or 2 below Null to enhance the smaller targets.  When at Null I could get the Gain to 3 without it getting too ‘choppy’ in the signal. 

Well I am happy to say that post fix I can run at Null or 2 below with a Gain of 8 in Mode 1 - ridiculous!  The number of false ground noises I am getting has also reduced somewhat although not completely.  The fact that I am still getting some ground noises is not surprising considering how wet it is here at present and also that I am at a Gain of 8.

This afternoon I then put on the 11” Detech coil that came with the QED.  I have never been overly impressed with this coil, mainly as it makes the QED nose heavy, but also that it seemed really susceptible to ground noise. 

Well today I ran the Detech at Mode 1 and a Gain of 10 (Null, THS A @ 40), it ran smoother than the Sadie and seemed much better over mineralisation.  I really didn’t think a Gain of 10 was possible but there it was! 

Interestingly I have also been making a little collection of cold rocks (they are mineralised sandstone type rocks and come up on an Equinox in the non ferrous range of 11-13.  No, they do not have gold in them).  Today I set up seven of these rocks that used to squeal on the QED and with the 11” Detech 3 of them made no noise and the other 4 are not nearly as loud as they used to be.   That’s a win as they were really annoying. 

I haven’t tried the 20 “ Advantage but now have quite a deal of confidence heading back to a few spots where I have found deeper, larger pieces of gold and should be able to ramp things up to see what else might be lurking.

Thanks again Howard.

That's great news Northeast, I was sure there was something wrong with your QED! Awesome results.
