XP ORX into Deus lite?!?

Post by Chickenstrip86 » Wed Nov 27, 2019 9:30 am

Hi all,

So currently using an ORX with an x35 11", and am considering getting rid of the control box or swapping it for some ws4 headphones and turning the ORX into a deus lite.

Just wondering if anyone has gone from an orx to lite, and if they liked it. And will it actually be much of an upgrade. I like the idea of access to the deus programs and full tones etc. And I'm not so bothered about losing vdi numbers.

And I understand ws4's with v5.2 have a lot of the settings the full deus has minus a few of course.

Struggling to find any in depth info on the lite its abilities setting and uses so any links to vids appreciated

Thanks.

It sounds like a good idea to me.
But never having used an orx I couldn’t comment on the difference.

I believe the Lite will give you many more options and choices ...

But I don't use an ORX so perhaps others will be of more specific help to you ::g

Have you tried the Facebook ORX group?

You will need to join ...

I have used the deus lite with the hf coil for about 20 months now, no idea on the orx programmes but on the lite with ws4 ,s you have ten programmes , each one gives you almost a different detector and with the choice of tones and the 14,29, and 54 khz with your hf coil the combinations of settings are endless . minus 6 discrim with full tones on prog 2 [gold max power] or the same on deus fast prog 3 , are what I use the most . ::g ::g ::g

According to official XP sources, the WS4 headphones will not work with the ORX....

But if he’s not using the ORX controller then the HF coil should be ok with the WS4s shouldn’t it? I don’t know for sure so please don’t think I’m an expert on this. It just seems logical that they would :-L

The HF coil that comes with the ORX isn't the same as the Deus HF coils - for instance it doesn't have a built-in battery - the ORX coil battery is housed in the lower stem of the shaft, connected to the coil via a coiled cable. Maybe I'm missing something, but probably easiest just to speak to the supplier before doing anything :)

All HF coils have the battery in the stem. But take your point, worth asking XP directly I guess.

Just give Regtons a ring.
In my opinion however.. I think an ORX with the X35 coil would be better than a Deus lite, simply because of same response time and depth etc but with a useful visual interface.. Just my opinion .. so no arguments please.

I agree Cathy, I would have thought the hf coil is the hf coil , so there should be no reason why the ws4,s should not pair with his hf coil :D phew that's a tangled web :))
So basically buy the ws4,s use your coil and stem , pair up the coil and controller and 'voular' you have a deus lite ::g
Still always check with dealers to be sure as its a possibility they have produced two types of hf coils B-)

It should work. I've just brought a 2nd hand hf coil for my lite, the coil came on V5 and my lite is only v4. Was going to get my mate to upgrade everything but he said I did'nt need to. I was under the impression everything needed to be on the same version but it turns out V5 coil will talk to V4 headphones.
All I had to do was put the serial number of the hf coil into the ws4's and all is good.
As long as the ws4's your getting are v5 (as I am told the x35's need v5) it should work fine

Sell the ORX and buy a light on that well known site, the light don't hold there price well but the ORX sell fast.

To clarify, I'm allready sure I can pair ws4's with the x35 coil I have.

I'm just wondering how much if any of an upgrade it would be to do, partly because I'd have access to the deus programs and most settings.

I'm really womdering if there will be a noticeable difference using say, deus fast compared to coin fast etc.

The achievable frequencies are the same, but I know the program's are different.

Trouble is you’ll need someone who has used both and I don’t think there are many of those yet.

Yes, there in lies the main issue. Most of the basics I know, like the fact I can do it. Just wondering if it's a worthwhile upgrade or what. Guess I'll do some more digging. Maybe get on the phone to regtons.

I mean the orx is a good bit of kit. And I am finding the goods. Just thinking out loud really about changing it up.
