Great First Use Of XP Orx

Recommended Posts

I decided to hit a hammered colonial site where the last several times there with the Nox 800 no significant non-ferrous items were found. Every couple trips I might find a cuff button. So was running the ORX with 9” round hf coin in coin fast 28khz, but switching to coin deep at 54 kHz., reactivity 3, sensitivity 94. Found 1792-1812 period American  naval button ( undetermined variety as yet). With 13 5-pointed stars and Philadelphia back mark.Also found cuff link, outside of large 2-pc ball button. 

Thesewere all found within 45 minutes, and other targets were going to be found for sure. 

I’m totally impressed with the machine. So much so that last night I  ordered a 9” XP X35 coil, because folks? The XP ORX is a keeper with a long future. Deepest target ( squarenail ) at 1 1/2. Punpointer lengths. (15”-16”)

It's an amazing machine.... For real ! .... It paid for itself in (2) weeks using it in Arizona .... 12 grams of 22 K

Manny, that’s awesome. The ORX is the real deal. Hope I get to try some gold prospecting sometime. Hope you keep getting the gold!

A tardy congratulations on your very good success!  I have to agree with your comment about the XP ORX.  I bought a brand new ORX package earlier this year with the 5X9½ HF DD coil.  While versatile for many uses I mainly got it for working some of the iron littered ghost towns I hunt out west.   Then in October I got a hold of my dealer again and bought another ORX package with the 9" X35 coil.   'Kickindirt,' my dealer, is a devoted fan of the Deus but I never liked it, preferring 'simplicity.'  His enthusiasm for the Deus, however, kept my interest up and with the new ORX on the market we have 'Simplicity' yet ample 'Functional' adjustments and terrific in-the-field 'Performance.'  They don't replace the other models I've kept in my Outfit but certainly do complement them.

I hope you got out more since that July post and had comparable success.

Manny ...  I enjoy my ORX w/5X9½ HF DD coil as you were using, but haven't had success YET in some of the Eastern Oregon gold mining ghost town areas I hunt.  My age and impaired mobility have limited my mobility afoot,  but I plan on getting a side-by-side RUV for next year's adventures.  That will let me maneuver into more of their prospecting areas.

Now all I need to do is spend this coming cabin-fever season to work on some settings and mode picks to be ready for the challenge.  Would you mind sharing the op. frequency and settings that brought you that success afield?  I, and others, would appreciate the input.

Thanks,

Monte

It's got plenty of settings to experiment with, I am running a custom gold program that I made and man.....With the headphones you can pick up a small piece of gold in hard packed 8-10 inches at a sensitivity of 90 and a threshold of (3).... 

I'm using 26.3 khz and no discrimination..... I found a lead BB at 8" inches depth.

It's a fun and easy way to hunt......I don't get to find many coins, but I found an old silver dime...... You know the guy with the wings on his head ....... But like always dig every target......because the dang machine pics up everything......

Thanks XP

When I get home today I will give you the exact settings..... I'm on the road today heading from Phoenix to Tucson..

I agree. The Orx is an awesome detector. I have the water kit too and performs great out in the water.

As I promised my settings are on user # 6

Sensitivity 90 but can be lowered to 85 if ground is hot

Frequency 26.6 KHZ

Reactivity 2.5

Disc IAR 0

Iron Volume OFF

Threshold (2) very light hummm

Manual Ground balance between 85 and 87 Arizona ground seems to be hot but the ORX balances good at 87

La XP ORX es una gran máquina ... Me encanta, pero no le gustan las rocas calientes y calientes ... La vuelve loca .....

are you using gold mode sensitivity at 85 loses depth compared to 90-95?

      I stopped for a bit of detecting after work and set up my Orx which I have in a backpack. I have 2 Orx set-ups which means two WSAudio headphones and two Mi6  pinpointers, and I had the PP paired to the other Orx so I had to remove the Mi6 currently paired to the remote and pair the one I had on me. So having done that I turned the pp on to locate a target. At this time the remote went to the   
      pinpointer screen and then started just beeping strangely and not working. I turned off the pinpointer but the remote stayed on the pinpointer screen beeping. I tried turning off the remote power but it would not power down - it said
                                 Turn Off   Turn Off 
      but holding the power button would not turn it off but It would just Go back to the pinpoint screen. Nothing was working to turn it off and stop the beeping but eventually pressing the top right arrow button got it out of pinpoint mode and I was then able to power down. When I turned it back on everything was back to normal and I was able to detect.    Anyone’s guess as to what the problem was, but if it happens again I’m going to contact XP service center
      ( does anyone have the phone and email for them in case I need to contact them?). 
       Has any Orx or Deus user had a similar thing happen?  
       Glad I have 2 machines in case one goes out for service  
       
            Enjoy the Independence Day weekend  HH

      I went hunting this evening with a friend who was using his Equinox while I was trying out the orx. Yikes!! The orx doesn't like being near the Equinox at all. Is there something I can do besides turn my sensitivity down. That seemed to work but I was hoping there was another option. Thanks!

      I did a little trading and have an orx coming with the x35 coil. I picked this up to partner with the Equinox 800.

      Interesting - a dedicated gold machine by XP incorporating the new high frequency coil and marketed in Africa at a very low price, only $680 http://www.depardetector.com/product/depar/dpr-600/912/511
      Note 9/14/2018 - It took almost two years but it appears the Depar DPR 600 is finally coming to countries other than Africa - announcing the new XP ORX!

      It certainly raises some questions. The first being, will we be able to buy this machine from XP dealers, or is it some sort of special deal for Depar? Personally I would be irritated by that were it to prove to be the case. I think many people here would rather buy this machine at a far lower price than buying a full blown DEUS and then having to pay even more to get the high frequency coil as an accessory.
      The video gives an idea how the high frequency coils may act. The elliptical version of the coil is said to operate at 20, 40, and 80 kHz! (See video). Is this what we will see in the high frequency elliptical for the DEUS? The round HF coil is said to operate at 15, 30, and 60 (56) kHz which is in line with what has been previously advertised.
