Only our Custom Wood Chambers will natively fit your D2000. We do not install these cups on the D2000, nor do we provide instructions for doing so.

I guess the answer is no. Then again, getting spare cups is probably not a easy task to begin with.

The key word there is natively. They will fit. They just need some tweaking and some slight trimming/sanding etc on the inside. You can tell if you look up Tyll's article on the DX000 series in which he took the entire headphones apart. The hook mechanism that attaches the D2000 cups and the D5000/D7000 cups are slightly different and you can visually see that in Tyll's pictures. They will fit just fine and perfectly in terms of size and dimensional integrity. Getting them locked into place is just tricky that's all.

I just scanned this, but I believe it is instructions for replacing D2000 cups with D7000 cups.  It probably is the same with D5000 cups.

It's probably just easier if you chop the plastic stands off. At least that is what I did. Works with D5000 cups.

 

edit: just noticed that it's the second post in that thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/502070/how-to-create-a-d2000-woody-on-a-budget-56k-warning#post_6779140

How is the o2 amp with the d2000? I have an e17 but I might use it as a DAC and get the o2. I heard the d2000 scales well. Will I benefit with the o2?

I had the ODAC/O2 combo, and I found the highs to be a little harsh when pairing it with my D2000. Not sure if that was the fault of the amp. I sold it in favor of trying a warmer sounding amp. 

 

The ODAC/O2 is very clear though. If clarity is the number one concern, I think it's a very nice unit. Very flat and neutral too.

 I enjoy the O2 amp with my Lawton-tuned D5000.  The standard configuration is to have a 2.5x and 6.5x gain with the O2 amp.  I opened it up and clipped out the resistors on the 6.5x path, so now my O2 has 0 gain or 2.5x gain.  I typically feed the O2 amp with the 2 Vrms line level signal and I've never had a reason to use any gain with the O2 amp.

 

Also, my O2 amp is using a 16V 400mA power supply over the standard shipped 12V 200mA version.  It's probably overkill, but even the designer suggests that this upgrade for power-hungry headphones.  The Denon's can take a huge amount of power (1.8W), despite being rather easy to drive.  I also use this amp at times with a pair of Mr. Speaker Mad Dogs (3.2 version), which needs a bit more power than the Denon's.  Both headphones sound great at low to mid-level volumes.  I rarely listen at louder levels, so I can't really comment on the performance characteristics when jamming at loud levels. (>90-95 dB)
