The FE volume levels are good meaning it's not such a headache when on very low disc - you can hear the iron but at the level you prefer on whichever program you use. The Boost Process is deep but slow on my SE but works as intended when over deep vegetation - certainly gives you a chance if you can't get the coil close to the ground.
I'm not sure if the DST affects depth when switched on - you can flick it off if in a field without EMI of course.
I like to hunt in either 1 tone on low disc around 75-82 sensitivity in quiet fields, or 2 tones with quieter iron depending on the level in the soil. I don't like to disc too high as I'm sure it affects my depth (as written about elsewhere). I can't go to some of the high gain settings due to lots of my fields having high mineral content as I live in the mining county of Cornwall. I check targets in All Metal or use other methods like raising coil etc to check for junk/size of targets. Higher disc does seem to me to reduce what the T2 tells you on most targets - it may be my machine or just me, who knows! A bit of manual ground balancing can optimise the T2 as well given the right conditions.
A lollipop depth test is worth doing if you haven't tried it just before you search for the first signal
Hope this helps!!
