Default Vanquish in stores.

I was Black Friday shopping this morning and Dick’s sporting goods has them in stock. I had them open the 340 so I could check it out. Very lightweight and felt like it had decent build quality. Almost pulled the trigger.

Btw, I wasn’t endorsing this machine in any way. I was just putting it out there in case someone wanted to see one up close.
The one thing I can’t understand about this series is the 1/8” headphone plug. Makes no sense.

Very interesting. I'm surprised there wasn't an announcement first. Have the people who have preordered these received them yet?

The 1/8" headphone jack is what I disliked most about the early explorer series. Can't believe they are actually bringing them back...

I think it might be due to the fact that almost everything is made with 1/8 now,all iPads,iPhone etc,and store shelves are full of 1/8 earbuds,headphones.

Thanks for the video...I made a premature judgement on the vanquish but I honestly like what im seeing in these videos.I’d buy one if they were plentiful.I think it’s pretty cool and the foldability is just like a deus..

Yeah, it looks like a good machine. It appears to perform well, has good depth and decent build quality from what little I've seen of it.

A competent multi freq machine for under $400 - why not......
