First days out with the XP ORX

Post by kemce1 » Mon Dec 17, 2018 9:15 pm

Had my first days out with the XP ORX i found it easy bit of kit to use switch on and go quite a pleasure to use no messing about with settings .My first find was a William 111 love token and a few nice buckles second outing i got a poor mans ring with fake hallmarks it was 11 inches down so i cant wait to go out and give it another go

Much like your self I am Enjoying the simplicity of my new investment The ORX ,
Nice to hear you’ve had a deep find I’ve been following a Face book group of new German Orx
Owners And they have all been complaining at the lack of depth , From the Orx ! And now several have done comparisons with the Deus and a number of older beep and go machines they own , I must admit all of my finds so far have been quite shallow , So I am a little concerned after spending £700 odd pounds ,

I have had some very good finds with the ORX including Bronze age gold and celtic finds
But all have been within six inches
As program coin fast is as near as i can see to deus fast
it should be going much deeper.
Allso if you went just by the sound you would miss good targets
as they seem to have more of an iron sound
so i have to use the screen numbers more than the sounds
Looking forward to an update when xp understand that people are having
problems

If you lose the remote for the orx can you buy a replacement remote ?

As the coils are the same ones the Deus uses, I'm presuming the ORX works in exactly the same way, but with limited scope for adjustment on the remote.

If that's the case, then the answer to getting deep finds is simply to dig any faint, but repeatable, squeaks. If you only dig the full on tones everything will be shallow, which is probably how the Deus became regarded by so many as a shallow machine.

Is Audio Response adjustable on the ORX? If so, raising that will help. It won't give you any more depth, but it will make those deeper signals sound more like a "must dig". If not, just listen carefully and dig the squeaks ::g

I've heard a few Deus users say that they don't think the Deus is a particularly deep seeking machine anyway.
I am still interested in the orx.. would prefer one to the new minelab machine.
I'm a new user of XP machines.. Using the GMP and impressed at the depth that gets me.
The ORX just looks like a fab machine.. would own one in a shot if I could afford it. ;)
