I've asked David from the Battle of the Flagship thread if he'd want to borrow my denons and to throw them on the list somewhere (I'm curious and I want to know what he thinks of the specific combination of mods on the phones). He's considering it, but might be taking a break from reviewing headphones for a while. As they are my denons dont sound at all like stock denons. Completely different soundscape due to the modding, although I'd consider the mids still recessed (tradeoff for both soundstage and reduced sibilance). And while the LCD2 sounds fine, it was mainly the lack of dynamics that really made them undesirable. If that can go away or be alleviated it would make a much better can.
(hopes for that change...)
Yeah, I see that you own a markl modded D2k, I've only ever heard the D7k modded by Mark and I was not impressed by it's sound (let alone the little improvement) compared to stock for 2x the price the owner paid. Each to their own I guess.
