Silver Sabre Plus - Threshold adjustment

Post by Roughwood » Wed Jun 06, 2018 9:50 am

Hello All.

Still happy using my old SS+, and am very familiar with it now. Recently bought a 10.5 inch coil which has improved depth, and some new headphones which definitely help.
However, I have been wondering about adjusting the threshold setting.
Having said that, I have no real reason to suppose that it needs changing, and don't want to get into 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. Also, I usually use it in 'Silent Mode'.
Basicaslly, I guess I'm asking if doing this would bring any benefit?

Any advice / thoughts in this regard gratefully received. ::g

Many thanks,
Mike

Have a look at this link to the manual. It seems to me that if your running in silent then the threshold doesn't come in to play, and it's only engaged if your in all metal. I think you can bring the threshold into play on the silent mode if you tweak it.

Turning up the threshold as in youtube videos is a waste of time

it does not add depth

you lost the adility to pinpoint in all metal mode

you looses the ability to hear how deep a target is

it does make faint targets louder but if you are using headphoes you can hear them anyhow

There's something to be said for actually reducing the threshold when
'all-metal' searching (normal practise when using my Arado). The indication produced by small/deep targets via a slight raise in volume/tone, I find more noticeable. My theory on this, is that when accustomed to a very low threshold, your (my) hearing becomes more attuned to those faint signal responses produced by those small/deep and very much sought after targets.::g

Thanks Guys for the replies.
I guess it is a case of leave it as it is - no sense in 'fiddling' needlessly!
However, I really appreciate the input.

Cheers,
