Would upgrading to the LA-2000 be a huge leap? Also would the Xonar DX be able to drive the LA-2000? Thanks

 

 

if you like bass youll love the denons as for running it with your dx soundcard should sound good i currently run my lawton audio d-5000 with the littledot mk3 tube amp and sonar essence stx soundcard and it sounds pretty good. so it should be alright

Just installed some J$ pads for my D5000.  I definitely like the changes to the sound.  The bass doesn't seem to bleed as much and becomes more tame, yet still very fun with the same punch.  Comfort between the J$ and stock is different but not worse, just different.  The stock pads are softer, but the J$ are still soft and sit farther out on your ears.

 

Anyone who likes the D5000 and hasn't tried the J$ or Angle (very similar) pads I would recommend them.

Can you buy replacement earpads that are the same as stock?

I think the J$ pads must help to reduce any bloated bass.  I just don't hear a bloated, messy bass with my D5000's, as some claim to hear.

Yeah, I agree. I kinda want more bass even though it's already quite substantial. To my ears it's really good quality bass.

It really, really holds these cans back unless modded. I am still waiting for Lawton angle pads but dampening them with dynamat really made them quite listenable.

I'm cruious to hear a modded pair but if it "tightens" up the bass I'm not interested as I like the bass as it is. I guess it's the drummer in me that love's the impact and resonance.

Ah!  Perhaps that may be it.  A drummer's perspective is where I come from when I listen to any non-classical music.  Everyone focuses on different aspects of a song, and I can listen to a song 50 times and probably can't tell you what the lyrics are about, as these are simply background noise to me.  Although, I can listen only to the drums and usually tell you what song it is.

The mod doesn't so much 'tighten' it as it just removes the excess 'boomy-ness' and muddy resonances. In terms of overall bass tightness and texture, the newer D600's still beat out fully modded D5000's in my opinion...

I kinda like the boominess though, however I think the texture could be a bit better.

Yeah, I would actually prefer all music to be instrumental as the vocals get in the way of everything. When I listen to music I mainly focus on the rhythm ensemble.
