Yeah. I'm aware that I will probably need a pair of whatever brand I got.I just had a look at that Panurgy page. They don't seem to be very customer friendly. http://www.panurgyoem.com/denon/sraHome.asp It would be so much simpler if the parts could be just sent. It seems very protectionist.
I have recently been victim to a blown right driver in my Denon D7000. This was pretty harrowing given how much they cost only a couple of years ago. However, before I get in touch with my insurer to see if they will cover the loss I wondered if anybody had or knows where to get replacement drivers that fit the cans I already have. I have researched any apparently driver units for the Denon D2000/5000/7000 or Fostex 600/900 range will slot right in.   Does anybody have a...
Well, I have just ordered some Fostex T50RP headphones that I intend to modify. I think this incident has forced me to reassess how much I spend on my audio equipment. I need to be realistic and only buy equipment that I can afford to lose if the worst happens.   So, although I have put the feelers out for a replacement driver, do you think anybody would be interested in buying what remains for spares? I'm in the UK, if that helps anybody.   (Edit: spelling)
 I've emailed Mark Lawton. Sadly he has no spare drivers that suit the task. He suggested getting a pair of TH-600's and modding them instead. If only I hadn't had to shell out for a new boiler, car and my father's funeral the last two months. It's been quite the year already.
 Well, from what I can see after some Googling is there no readily available place to source drivers for the D7k or the TH900. Would the TH900 drivers just screw into my existing cups anyway or would it require further modding?
Well I can now confirm that the right can is definitely dead. I just desoldered the working left side and attached the wires to the right can's terminals. Nothing. Absolutely dead. So it's not a wiring issue.   The question that remains now is should I break these down and sell them for spares (I still have the original box too) so I can recoup a little of what I've lost and replace them with something of similar quality or does anyone else have a bright idea to fix my...
When I get the chance I'm going to try a basic rewire with some old headphone cable I can rummage out of  my junk box. Maybe it's to do with the jack end and not the can at all. Fingers crossed.
Well, the reality is, it isn't a loose wire. I've just opened the can up and checked. There wasn't any sign of pulling or bad solder on the red or the black. I've checked the circuit from the wire terminal to the jack with a digital multimeter and the circuit completes. I guess you could say I'm one unfortunate mofo. The finger is pointing at the Graham Slee Voyager amp zapping the driver. God knows how though.   Are there any other checks I can do before I break this...
Cheers for the reply. I don't suppose you know what a blown driver typically sounds like do you? I would have expected distortion rather than not a crackle or whisper. Even pulling the headphone jack part of the way out so it goes mono in both cans doesn't seem to make it kick into action. My gut feeling is it is not a solder joint. They normally go intermittently in my experience. If it is a solder joint, will I be likely to damage anything else using a mains powered...
Well, I have some sad news. My beloved AHD7000's look like they have a serious problem. I was using them plugged into my iMac listening to a video at work and they were fine. Then I unplugged them I stuck them into my Graham Slee Voyager portable amp and suddenly the right can wasn't working. I assumed that it was a bad connection elsewhere in the setup, but it appears with testing on multiple configurations and devices, that isn't the case. No sound at all.   Can a...
