Denon D2000/D5000, MD2000/MD5000 Thread! - Page 229

post #3421 of 4945

Hello everybody,

 

I feel happy to join you guys here, I have a question that haven't really found an answer, I have one D2000 stock (4 years old) and one barely new D5000 second hand (less than 100hours of burn), 

 

With the same play list, i did have to change the volume more often with the D5k than the D2k, do you have any suggestion for that  ?

 

thank you and sorry for my poor English. :D

not that it really matters, but still...

 

 

I kinda agree, the Alpha's look a little interesting on any headphone... but the side profile looks really nice, so I wouldn't worry about it an just buy and enjoy them. Plus they are UBER comfy

The Alpha pads are very reasonably priced, only half the price of the Lawton angle pads. Not sure about the sound effect as I have not used the Lawton pads.

The comfort makes up for any "bulkiness" they add to the headphone in my view.  Alpha pads have been used by me on D2000, D5000, D7000, Q40, Pro900 - they are soft, seal well and feel as good as any pad could.

 

The Lawton pads are firmer but I feel they are overall as comfortable as the Alpha's for long term usage.

Hey guys, I really enjoy the D2K for non-classical genres but I find it's not the best choice for classical music. Any recommendations for cans excellent for classical music? Here is what I am looking for .....

 

1. $500 ~ $1000

2. Music genre: Classical

3. Neutral and transparent

4. Fast and effortless

5. Sparkling treble

6. Sound signature similar to earphone Sony EX1000.

 

I have not auditioned the D5K or D7K, but I assume they may share similar sound signature as the D2K, correct?

Get your self a Modded w1000x or W5000

 

The angeld driver of the W1000x combined with it's more linear sound sig after modding is wonderful for classical, I also hear the Kenwood KH1000 is another good one, or go open and get your self an HE 4 or DT 880 depending on your ampage

I plug them into my dac amp Matrix mini

 

http://www.head-fi.org/products/matrix-mini-i-dac

 

it is true that in the play list i have some tracks are mp3 and some are flac and wav , but, it is strange that with the D2K I don't really need to change the volume more often than with the D5k.

 

If i had to add or reduce the volume with the D2K , it was just for 1 or 2 db, with the D5k, it had to be 3 or 4 db. 

 

if there is anybody have these two models can test them please ? :D

Hey guys, I'm looking to try the dampening mod on my D2K. Is this the Dynamat that I should use?

http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00FJVCENG/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_mUDftb1N94X24


Also what does adding cotton to the pads do? Is it just a comfort thing or does it alter the sound?

That should work (the Dynamat kit).  Cotton to the pads increases the distance to the drivers, which on angle pads (like Denon stockers are) aid in soundstage a bit.  It adds comfort as well. 

 

Play with the cotton.  You also have other options - Alpha pads, Lawton angle pads.  The damping will give you the most improvement.

thanks for the info.  I've looked at the Lawton and Alpha pads, but honestly i'm not looking to spend too much money right now.  In the process of saving up for an LCD 2 :)

WOW ! WOW ! WOW !

A little less in fact... And what´s the matter ?
For it s my money and my pleasure
And don t find it SO MUCH expansive compare to Lawton s (289.00$) or Martin s...
Job already done and dampened and ready to fit
So no : I don t find it too much expansive at all
And didn't t expect such a reply nor !
