Thanks for this thread, Bilavideo. I recently got a pair of SR80s and I'm considering doing some of these mods you've posted. I really want to try making some wooden cups for them, and I was thinking it might not be too difficult if I used a drill press and a solid block of wood. It'll be a while (probably around Thanksgiving or Winter break, unfortunately) before I have access to the equipment, but I'll follow up if I get some nice results.
I look forward to seeing how that comes out. I have a birthday coming up (the big 4-5) and my wife has told me not to buy a drill press. Something tells me I'm not getting a tie.
It's cool when we're able to share info and insights. I had wondered if a hole saw would work, but stopped having to wonder when somebody did a big spread about distancers. He went over what he did, step by step, and it really helped me figure out what I might try. One way or another, the restless at heart will find a way - with help and encouragement from our little community at HeadFi.
