I have been using the new gold monster 1000 and if the new Equinox is any thing like the Monster, I am in.

Interesting.... like the light weight look!
Just wondeting if the updates if pitched will actually ever happen, like the case with CTX.
Still @#$%& about that and know it was a marketing and profit situation.
I look at it, as a bait and switch to be perfectly honest.
Dont get me wrong, I love my CTX, just upset that I feel we were all misled and scammed. I think ML should offer a nice discount on this new machine, to us original CTX purchasers that still own and use the CTX.
Like me, I would buy it with that discount even though I use CTX all the time.

Any comments or like feelings?

So they are down to price point.... unfortunately the prior decisions by companies often end up that way. Thru dhould have listened To those of us barking about things early on CTX days. Guess they ate smarter than is lemings...
Only time will tell, I'll wait for reviews before being on the first order list, regardless of the reasonable pricing. I'm scared and cautious from last go around. Actually, wonder if this will put pressure on XP to reduce their price. Maybe a price war to the $500s... NOT!

The Equinox looks like it will be incredibly good in trash. I will not hesitate to buy one.

Remember what marketing's basic function is... make money and lots of it. Fancy pictures and " looks" will fall into that catagory.

I see that the target ID are single or double digit like the Safari. Does any one know the range, like -10 to 99?

At 4:40 in the first demo the guy says in multi-frequency it uses "several frequencies". Then at 10:52 another guy specifically uses the term "full band" when discussing the multi-frequency option. So can we infer that in multi-frequency mode the Equinox is using more than just a combination of the single frequencies?
