yep, i did see that on ebay, and have one of my friend ordered them for his D7000 but i doubt they are not official from Denon. Thinking that I will try them whenever i come visit my friend and post some feedbacks here. :popcorn:

 

I think that i will just need some precautions as the pads are in contact directly to the thin skin and because in 2008 and 2009, in France there was some sort of problem of allergic similar.

for those can read french :tongue_smile:

Haha, yeah, we are in the cruel world. Somehow, my dac Matrix mini and my little Soundmagic E10M are 100% cn.cn , but they rock great :L3000: . Can't say that all things come from Chn are worse but have to take precaution for our own good.

Does anyone know if you can get replacement cups for a D7000? I know you can get the pads, and little screws and what not, but I was wondering if this guy or anywhere else sells the cups for a D7000. My D7000 has a chip on one of the cups, it works fine, I just want to know where I could buy a replacement. Also how much should one cost if anyone would know?

You can buy custom made cups from either Lawton Audio or Martin Customs.  They make cups for the Denon headphones.  Cost is around $250 for a pair of cups installed made out of some of the most gorgeous wood you've ever seen.  See my D2000 cups from Martin that he did last summer for me.  Lawton's cups are usually around $389.

Wow. That looks way nicer than stock D7000 cups. Thanks for the info. I will have to keep that in mind if I feel like going through with replacing the cups. Btw did you notice any change in the sound when you replaced your cups?

I did because my cups were made extra deep from Martin. Made it a little boomy, which I fixed with some Dynamat damping installed in the cups.

Just a heads up for anyone that comes across this later on, I emailed Luigi today and he replied that he no longer works in the parts department. His recommendation was to call 201-762-6391 or email parts@denon.com.

The parts can be ordered online from https://www.encompassparts.com/ 

 

Just search for the part numbers listed in the first post of this thread...all were in stock today.

Hmm sorry im little impatient, but im very busy and dont have time to read all the posts.

So my Denons broke today

 

Thats all I have left http://cdn.imghack.se/images/8f6a28f72100dcb6ed96a860c23b4f6c.jpg

This knob part is not coming out. Should it?

 

Is there any way I can fix this? I dont live in USA.

 

Can it be possible that I can just tighten the screw and it holds, or is it broken? I dont have right tools right now. Also I tried to superglue it, bad idea.

Hi guys!

What you use a screwdriver to screw 4mm?
Bought a Dynamite, but the walls are thick and did not reach the bolt, I cannot unscrew.
Please give the reference or the name of a suitable tool.

I bought my replacement parts from Lawton Audio. The prices were comparable to other online vendors and he at least has it all in stock. I saved myself at least $40 bucks fixing it myself but I did need to by an additional 4mm nut driver that I bought as part of this kit

 

For those of you attempting to fix it, I followed the instructions found on AVS Forum. There is a step by step guide with photos which was helpful. The most difficult part was taking off the cap. The suggestion is to use a thin flat head screwdriver. At least with the way I did it, you don't use the screwdriver to pry it open by trying to slide it in between some gap since none existed on mine. I believe it is glued so you need jam the screwdriver against the side and lift it upwards. I slowly went around the cap repeating these steps a few times and eventually this removed the cap. You do need to be careful that you don't accidentally jam the screwdriver into your other hand while attempting it.

 

Once the cap is off the rest is pretty easy. This thread mentioned using locktite. I had it ready but in my haste and excitement to put this back in one piece I forgot to add the locktite. I don't think it'll make or break the fix so if you don't have it laying around I would say it isn't worth buying a tube.

 

Finally the replacement cap doesn't screw on or pop back on. You'll need to use stick glue as suggested on AVS Forum. I'll have to try it as mine is exposed at the moment but that is a purely aesthetics piece and doesn't impact the listening and enjoyment at all.

 

Here's to another few years of happy listening with the Denon D-2000!

So I find myself here, after championing a quick and dirty fix for a very battered pair of d2000s, now looking for a nicer fix for a th600. The spring screw thing splode, fell out. Any current dealers for the fostex parts? are they the same?
