Depar Dpr 600 - New Gold Detector By XP


Steve Herschbach

Recommended Posts

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.

That will not happen Chuck. This is a variant being marketed in Africa and frankly that was the goal of the project the whole time in my opinion. The Deus add on coils and update are just a side show. The real money is in Africa.

I really do hope they make this model directly available outside Africa. If not XP would have some explaining to do to prospectors elsewhere in the world.

Well what I see on the KHz it will run on is about the same they were going to offer on the V4 update for the XP Deus.

I wish someone in the know will please come on here and tell it like it is.

To me I'd be better off if I could update what I got now being the V4 would have been free. Then all I'd have to do is buy the smaller coil. The coil they show on the video is a 9 or 11 inch coil and you still may have to buy a smaller coil .

The odd thing if you go to the site that Steve posted they got in big letters BUY NOW.. Right now I don't think I need are want one but I still like to see if I could buy it.

Sometimes it's best to not bite off more than you can chew.Lord knows I've done that more than I want to say.

Since leaving the company I'm a bit out of touch.

But. remembering the question always asked by consumers: "why are they cheaper in the USA?", I can't help but thinking something is really strange if this new unit can be bought for USD$680.00 which is equal to GBP£540.00 and  EUR€624.00 

While a New one in the UK w/9" coil, remote, small headphones and NONE of the other accessories being supplied will set you back USD$1734.00 or GBP£1378.00

After all, it's the SAME device albeit with different colored plastics and software.

And...money is still being made by the manufacturer AND the supplier!!!

It drives home the point how arbitrary and over inflated detector prices are. some companies are worse then others with this.

The manufacturers read forums, they know exactly what people are willing to pay.

      I buried a 3.7 grams 14k Gold ring at 14" in the sand at a beach on a lake. The ground is mild.
      I went over the sand with 0 disc to make sure it was clean.
      Setting were sensitivity 96, recovery 2 and disc at 7.
      I went over the ring with 3 tone, 4 tone and gold 1.
      3 tone & 4 tone hit it very good. I was surprised 3 tone hit good.
      Gold 1 was a very soft hit.
      All the frequencies 14 khz to 54 khz hit it.
      This spring I'll be hunting in the water with it.

      Been using the Simplex with the SP 24 for a year now and have done really well with it, especially in trashy areas. Just won an xp orx which came with the hf elliptical coil and I just ordered a 9 inch x 35 coil. Detected a couple of places with the orx and it doesn’t seem to separate out the trash that is close to a coin like the Simplex. I’m wondering if the x35 coil I’m getting  can be setup to do as well as the simplex in trashy areas. Thank, Jim

      Looking for some user settings for coins and jewelry in parks and any tweaks in the two gold settings for small nuggets in mineralized ground. Thanks, Jim.

      Just got a XP ORX with the 9x5 HF coil and the coil battery won't charge. The control battery charged up fine but when i try to charge the coil battery the light on the coil blinks every three seconds like it is charged when it is only 30 % charged. The light never stayed on continually like it says in the manual when i first hooked it up and yes i have it hooked up the right way. Thanks, Jim

      The battery for the coil is fully charged. I entered the coil number that's on top of the coil in slot 1. I validated it and no connection on the controller. No frequencies. I went thru the process several times and no connection. Any help with this?
      Thanks,
      Rick

      I posted this on another site, but would like to hear more opinions.
      Like the title says, which is better for general coin /jewelry hunting in Parks, Ballfields, Playgrounds, School yards, etc., Deus or ORX? I know that the main problem with either is probably all the aluminum trash found today in those kinds of sites, and that most hunters probably wouldn't choose either one for that activity. Don't really want to hear about other, "better", units for hunting those sites, just which would be best between these two? Anxious to hear the opinions, and how you came to that conclusion...
