gardansolyn Published on Jan 7, 2019 The ORX metal detector from XP is an easy to use machine which can locate targets at impressive depths. Deep coins and artefacts can not hide from this machine as this video demonstrates. The MI-6 pinpointer compliments the ORX very well it saves a lot of time when location deep targets.

Gary is really great explaining about the ORX in his videos.  He has a easy layed back way of getting over to you what he wants you to know about the ORX.

The ORX is looking good to me. A simple version of the Deus but still seems to pack a punch. I have swung a friends Deus and the weight is ridiculous and I love the “back phones”. The cost always kept me from taking the plunge but I may have to give one of these a go.

My brother and I have just each ordered one.  With my tennis elbow I am really looking forward to a super lightweight detector.  I can't wait to try out the 9" coil at the farm (large amounts of iron).  I think it will be a great companion detector to the Equinox 800 that I have. 

I would give my eyeteeth for a 9" coil for the Nox. :biggrin:

I don’t think the Orx is gong to have much impact in the gold prospecting world but it looks like it’s going to be a popular option for general purpose detecting. I basically like what I see. It’s funny how it’s tempting to jump on a new model when I don’t actually need one.

A new video just was posted on the net yesterday showing the ORX being used for nugget hunting in Australia. What they were showing I’d say it was doing great.

 Seeing is believing but sometimes do you believe what you see .

I sold my AT pro (too heavy) and my F70 (didn't push enough volume for my poor hearing) and got the ORX as my "backup" detector.  Even at 2.9 lbs I still have to use a swingy thing to support the Nox if I am going to swing it all day.  I have always wanted an XP but couldn't bring myself to spend the money for a new Deus and I didn't want to buy one that was used and possibly get one with issues.

 It’s bad at 39 and holding but it’s pure hell when you’re pushing 78.

LOL  - I keep working my way to lighter and louder detectors.  I need to figure out a way to pair my hearing aids to the detectors.  I told my son that one day I will be limited to watching him detect.

Thats kind of where I’m at. 

Im down to 2 Tesoros and the Makro MKruzer.  The Kruzer is plenty light but those XPs are feather weight and the “back phones” are the icing on the 🎂 

Probably will scoop one up when the IRS return hits the bank!

      I just wondering if anyone has seen a list of ID numbers for the ORX on American coins.
       I’ve been looking over the discrimination that the ORX has to offer but it’s nothing to write home about. Oh you can block out from 0 to 99 but wherever stop anytime below that won’t be detected. The trouble you can’t step over a number are too and continue on blocking only what you want to .
       If and when XP has a update this one of many they need to work on to make ORX worth their asking price.

      Published by  Graeme Stokes on Jan 22, 2019 - A brief introduction to try out the salt mode in the XP ORX metal detector using a 9 inch HF coil. I used the standard coin deep program. All you do the. Is hold down the # button for three seconds and your in salt mode. I wasn’t out for long and thought it was excellent, when I took salt mode off there was all sorts of feedback through the headphones. It definitely gets a thumbs up from me. Apologies for the dodgy camera work half way through!

      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. A big shocker for me - 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.
