I would much rather see a driver swap than a cup swap. Correct me if I'm wrong but given how expensive the lacquer finish is on the th-900 cups are I think switching the drivers would actually be less expensive. I'm also not much of a believer of wood cups making that much of a difference sound-wise.
Agree, and with dampening the choice of cup material has little impact on sound reproduction. Still wish they revisited the overall design, Denon were always leaving me with (will fall apart soon) feeling, and that self unscrewing cup swivel, aarrgh.
