    Tesoto Tejon and VCO?

    I had a Tejon some years back. It got great depth BUT all targets sounded the same no matter how deep or shallow? Is it possible to have VCO audio on this machine so deeper targets sound more mellow and get louder as targets get less deep, like on my Tesoro Lobo ST? -Tom V.
