If by mixed mode you mean true all metal audio simultaneously combined with discriminated audio and/or visual ID,  probably about 5 or 6 brands have mixed mode models.  In other words most of the Top brands have at least one VLF mixed mode detector.  Whites probably has the most models with it (including the V3i, MXT, abd DFX), Garrett has at least one (AT Gold), First Texas (Fisher F75 and Teknetics(see below)), and Nautilus.  That includes brands that have audio mixed mode and those that have all metal audio and discriminated vdi.  If you want to know more than just how many brands have it and a more detailed breakdown by Steve then read this article.  Things haven't changed much since Steve wrote that article, but some additional detectors not mentioned in that article that have True and Pseudo mixed mode include the Teknetics T2 (similar to the F75), Teknetics Omega 8500, XP Deus (Gold Field mode), and Minelab Equinox Gold Mode with Disc off (the last two are debatable, I suppose).  Not sure about Nokta/Makro, but they likely have it in their latest models.

....Count RUTUS detectors and AKA detectors that also work in MIX MODE with these detectors,,,

The typical definition of Mixed Mode is All Metal audio and Disc mode audio working simultaneously.   

I don't think of All Metal with TID as being mixed mode, although I guess you could call it that.   I don't define it that way though and most other folks wound't either when they hear the term, Mixed Mode.

The only ones I'm personally familiar with are Whites (DFX, V3, V3i) and Rutus (Alter71)

I like chasing the bumble bee.  :wacko:

Understood.  It is addressed as an alternative implementation in Steve’s article on the subject of mixed mode, which I linked to so I covered it that way in my response for completeness.  Understand there are varied opinions as to whether or not some  consider that implementation mixed mode.  I think all that matters to those who care about the feature is to simply understand whether it is implemented solely in audio (the more “typical” or traditional sense) or as AM mixed with discriminated visual TID and choose the detector that has implementation that works best for them.

I like running mixed mode with 3 frequency Correlate on my V3.   I get to hear everything in the ground in the all metal channel but only hear the targets that correlate in the Disc mode.  

Another way I like Mixed mode is to reject the targets I'm after so that that they are only reported by the all metal channel.....reverse mixed mode is how its referred to I think.   

Mixed mode is very handy sometimes.   I wish more models offered it.   Sure you can hunt in the AM mode of the F75 but you have to watch the screen.   With an audio mixed mode you do it all by ear.

      I welcome!
      Minelab is a hybrid MDS-10 Minelab multi-frequency metal detector and Ultra WideBand pulse radar from Chemring. In the summer of 2019, the Minelab MDS-10 project (version 2.0) was adapted to search for historical finds. For what I bought, for what I sell ( https://md-arena.com/sekretnyj-proekt-minelab-gibrid-detektor-georadar-novinka-2019/ ). Target sizes include coins and jewelry. Practical tests confirmed the effectiveness of the technology. In Russia expected that the novelty will be presented at the copy slate Detectival 2019.
      But alas...
      Does anyone know when?
      IMHO Minelab should enter the market of such devices.It is impossible to give the market all the time to LORENZ, MAKRO Detectors, Nokta, with ichony georadars.
      With respect.

      I would like to see what any of you have created as far as displaying your metal detectors at home. I'm looking for creative ideas to make a home display myself. I'm entertaining many ideas from open to closed displays, even using Curio cabinets. To be clear, I'm looking for ways to display machines primarily, which could be mixed with finds as well.

      Hello everyone ..
      I wonder if there anyone who uses a 3D metal detector to locate gold deposits @ around 15 to 20 feet deep... 
      I have heard of larger nuggets of 1 and 2 pounds in size and gold deposits with 300 grams in a bucket of dirt being found in the river banks. 
      Could a GPX with the New 30" coil   could reach a 1 or. 2 pound nugget  @ 4 feet deep... 
      Im not interested in the finer gold just the bigger nuggets or a large concentrate of gold ..

      This is a nice concept. If works I can see a lot of interest.

      The cell phone is now a common day device owned by most people. It was inevitable that a metal detector designer would mimic the look and feel of a cell phone in an attempt to modernize how metal detectors are perceived. As far as I know it was Quest (back when they were named Deteknix) that first came up with this design. Or at lest they were the first to really market something like this in 2015. Then we next got the Minelab Equinox in 2018. And now the Nokta/Makro Simplex+ in 2019.
      Some might call this copycat designing but form follows function to a certain degree and all items copy others in some ways. All T-shirts have a head hole and two arm holes. Still, I think Deteknix/Quest gets the credit here for first popularizing this design. I'll be surprised if more are not to follow.

      Can someone explain to me what makes this new Anfibio different from a X TERRA 705 the 705 can run three different frequencies all be it you have to change coils to be able to run any of the three different frequencies it can run the Anfibio you push a button to change frequencies but with that being said I also know I can purchase a coil from a manufacturer that pretty much allows me to run one coil on the 705 and just by turning the 705 off and back on in a short time period it changes to one of the different frequencies that the 705 can run in in other words one single coil will run 3 KHz,7.5 KHz,and 18.75 KHz all done with just one coil so can someone please explain how the Anfibio is any different from the X TERRA 705 and not trying to start a bashing war here just trying to understand how the Anfibio is much different from the 705.
