Hey guys me ,metalspree and another friend of ours plan to perform the Denon AH-D2000 mods together .The upgrades planned are -
1)VFM/ cheap recabling
2) MarkL mods (dynamat + stuffing of pads )
The dynamat and foam can easily be sourced in India , but we are having a little hard time choosing the cable ,connectors ,sleeve for the cable and the heatshrinks .
I am basically looking for the following changes in the D2000 .More tighter bass, slightly less boom / vibrations . I guess this will be taken care of by the dynamat. Also expect the mids to slightly bloom and little more depth and width in soundstage.Which I guess the stuffing of pads will help .Also a slightly better and more clear treble extension would be amazing
Will the recable have any effects on the sound ? If yes ,which of these cables would be best suited for the needs stated above . Also the cable needs to be comfortable and not a pain like the stock D2000 cable.

Also a friend suggested that the Mogami 2354 is a bit too thick and uncomfortable ,so the Mogami 2893 / or the Belden will be a better option for us . What do you guys suggest ?
Of the above 3 the Belden 1172A is available locally in India for ~2$ / metre. So we have an advantage there. Is there any audible SQ difference between these 3 cables ? Which is better suited for us ?
Depending on the cables you chose ,please suggest cable sleeve which would fit the main cable and the splits perfectly .Also suggest proper heat shrinks for the split . If possible backup your suggestions with link so that I don't end up ordering the wrong products.
Thanks a lot.
