Denon D2000/D5000, MD2000/MD5000 Thread! - Page 214

post #3196 of 4969

Orge I'd love to get a pair of used Lawton or Aplha Pds for my new D2k :D, u gatta hook me up brah! 

post #3197 of 4969

Using all I've got buddy...................the spare alpha set went on my Q40 and the Lawtons are staying on my D7000.

 

Keep looking in the classifieds - I just missed out on a pair of Alpha's for $48.  And I see J$ pads fairly regularly, tho I wasn't impressed with them and sold my pair.

Any one out there by chance driving their D5000's with a Schiit Modi or Asgard 2? Thinking about pickup both of these and wondering if they will sound good with the D5000's so they can do double duty with my HE-400's.

I really like the way the TH600 looks....My D2K is looking warily at me while I inch towards the flat black paint...

Whoever said these things were built cheaply, you must just be a beast, because the screws and all the parts, small or not, were built like a tank. They used Loctite on EVERYTHING, and it was all super tight. I was struggling at some points to loosen the screws without breaking something. I made a video of some of it so people can see how to take apart the headband but am not sure if I'll be uploading it. The camera angle wasn't the best and it would need some editing. It will be on my computers hard drive for now.

 

But anyway...:blink:

 

Parts to be black...

 

I won't be defacing the D2000 cups, but I will be plasti-dipping them black. It's completely removable, but everything else won't be. But, IDC. Denon Darth2000.

 

:D 

 

Also, the headband adjustment pieces are taped off rather than disassembled because I couldn't loosen the screws and didn't want to bend or break either of the pieces they are going through. Tape will have to do, the paint won't stick to anything stainless anyway, I'll just chip it off if I have to.

I still have to go get the paint for it. I had a little courage to take them apart (Southern Comfort), so I did. I'll get to the painting here within the next 24 hours though.

I have a pair of denon d5000 in perfect condition, only about 1 hour of listening time. I am looking to sell them. If anyone is interested, please let me know!
post #3204 of 4969

Post it up in the FS forums. How did you acquire a D5000 with one hour of listening time?

post #3205 of 4969
I am new. To this site so I can't post them up yet. My husband bought them and was trying to keep them new as long as he could. He has a few other sets he uses. He basically checked them out and then put them away for safe keeping. Thank you for the suggestion. I do appreciate it! smily_headphones1.gif

That's a nice item to KEEP.  Should fetch about $450-500 if you go by what the typical sell price has been on our for sale boards. 

 

I say this only because I've not only owned them, sold them, but watch out for the entire Denon family on the for sale board regularly.  My favorite sound signature, to include the Fostex TH900, former builders of the earlier Denon's.

 

Good luck with sale - should move quickly if he indeed wants to sell them.

Well thank you again. This info definitely helps. I hate to get rid of them but it is what it is. Hope you're enjoying your day!
post #3208 of 4969

Which would be more worth the cost (about the same price total):

 

1) D2000 (w/ Lawton mod + Angle pads)

 

or 

 

2) D5000 (unmodded, original pads)

 

 

 

 

 

(fyi--I'm still having trouble finding a near-mint condition pair of D2000s for a reasonable price. If anyone knows someone or some place that's selling a near-mint or new pair, please let me know!)

post #3209 of 4969

I'm selling my D2000s if you decide you're interested.
