Denon D2000 D7000 Wood Cup swap

post #1 of 98
Thread Starter 

Has anyone attempted this yet? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

post #2 of 98

I remember reading from somewhere that this is actually not physically possible because way they attach to the body frame are a bit different (someone do correct me if I'm wrong...)

I'm hoping they will fit with shorter screws. I have read that the Denons D series frame/housing are the same size?

 

Thanks K19

Looks like it can be done!

 

 

Now to find the Head Fier who owns these beautiful cans?

Let me know if you're able to find some extra cups. I'd be very interested in this.

I just picked up a beautiful pair in the classifieds......

Sweet! Let me know how it goes. If it improves the sound and is easy to do, I'll have to look for a pair myself.

Do you have to mod to fit those or do they fit naturally?

Hopefully in a few days I will find out.

I am hoping the D7K's woodies will produce an improvement over the stock D2K's SQ. I will keep you posted.

It is "physically possible" but a little tricky. When one disassembles the thing and compares the factory cups with the wood ones, it is clear where to make some holes into the protrusions in the mahogany, practically with a screwdriver or similar.  The mahogany, fortunately, is so easy to work with.

 

The good news is that I am a woman, and if I have managed to do it, anybody with some common engineering sense should be able to do it as well.  :-)

Thank you for the advice Polar, I will just have to massage these to fit..

 

Those D27K's are gorgeous indeed!
