More Mahogany Custom Cups
Our latest shipment of African Sepele Mahogany custom cups is in, and this batch are even more beautiful than ever. Take a look:
This is just a sampling of the cups we received; when you order a pair, you can expect two cups that match each other in terms of grain pattern. I wish the way that the honey-like bands of rich color shift and move as you change viewing angles could somehow show up in a mere 2D digital photo. Great as they look here, there's just no way to fully capture all the gorgeous tones and shading that these cups have.
They are truly little works of wooden art; we can't wait to get your reaction when you see them in the flesh.
Our custom cups for the D2000 have been a big hit and are selling fast (almost too fast). Our cups are made to our spec; we spent a lot of time making and auditioning different wood cups in different sizes trying to find the best match sonically for the D2000. Our cups are a bit larger and thicker than the stock D2000 cups and put a bit more air behind the driver. This creates a slightly larger and deeper soundstage, for a more "out-of-head" experience than the stock cups provide.
In our opinion, any wood cup, even the stock wooden cups of the D5000/D7000, are superior to the plastic cups of the D2000 in terms of providing a natural and realistic tone/timbre. Of course we think our design is superior to that used by Denon on their woodies. Different woods have a different sound (varying chiefly on the density of the wood), and we will work with you to pick the right pair based on your listening preferences.
We have two craftsmen, Roshan and George, who turn these cups for us. They are true artisans and are extremely selective about the wood they use for blanks for our cups. We are doing our best to keep up with demand and will have more new cups in different woods available soon.
At this time, in addition to the latest mahogany cups, we also have our custom cups cut from jarrah, a higher-density exotic wine-colored wood, with deep dark umber browns to light peach-colored accents, that again, do not totally translate in a digital photo. Nevertheless, take a look at these:
Finally, we have a pair of low-density Tasmanian Blackwood, which are not black at all, but a rich wheat-colored to dark caramel-colored wood that glows an eerie golden glow in the light. This also shifts colors in a cat's eye way when you change viewing angles.
