I'm just a lucky guy as my wife is buying one for me :oops: :ugeek:
At that price I would want to know her motive or her guilt ;)

They’ve already said no discounts on new machines sadly :(

Absolutely :thumbsup: But there's already been huge word of mouth about this so word's spread anyway, plus they'll be lobbing out machines to the usual YT suspects for testing, plus many will be buying this sight unseen anyway. I could well be way off the mark, but I can't see much of a discount being offered which hasn't already been built into the RRP. However, I have been known to be wrong before :lol:

You've been playing the "Oh, but my body can't stand the strain of heavy machines" card, haven't you? :lol: Good man, but you might be a long time paying off the Brownie points she's earned, so good luck with that! :lol:

Just thought I would do a little price comparison, for those who didn't detect or never took any notice at the time of the original Deus release.
On release in 2010 the Deus was priced at £1,395, in today's money about £1,830, so looking at it that way it doesn't look so expensive.
On sale at the same time White's V3i RRP £1,429, discounts available, Minelab Explorer £1,079, no discounts, nothing new there.
Then in 2012 Minelab blew the budget with the CTX3030, a cool £1,995.

It is interesting they haven't mentioned if you can run it as a Lite unless I have missed something. If there is then that would bring it closer to the Nox price? I get they want to push the full set up as they want to maximise sales revenue but did they do the same with mk 1?

The WS6 headphones operate without the remote, but whether they will be selling this one as a Lite package initially remains to be seen.

Yes you can, and they've said a lite version will be released next year but exactly when hasn't been announced.

So basically you are being strong armed in to only buying the full set up initially when it is just taking the remote out of the box to make a lite version?

You could look at it like that I guess but that's marketing for you.

It was a few years before Xp marketed the Lite version last time around.

The other difference is that you can use bt headphones and either use the RC or the detached ws 6 module.
I’m hoping that this is a good step forward,they’ve had plenty of time to improve on both the deus and the nox.
I’m sure they’ve been looking at the nox for quite a few years and it appears to have more programs and adjustability.
Whether it will outperform the nox is a different matter and I’d be interested in an unbiased comparison with the deus too.

How would you really compare though? On one site one might be perform better than another. Plus proper comparisons on using it require time as any machine needs learning and the new Deus will be like starting again but with no real pointers on the best programmes for the UK, etc. Build quality issues can take time to manifest too.

I’ve already seen a lot of people on Facebook expecting a conclusion on it in the first week which I think is stupid. First impressions yes but not a real understanding of it’s strengths and weaknesses. Personally I just care that it is better than the existing Deus after investing a lot of cash into it :lol:

Speculating on a product that isn't even available just yet is a nonsense. Just wait until someone actually has hold of one then we can all read what they have to say. In the meantime sit back in anticipation and be patient! :thumbdown:
