I don't know what to suggest as an option for the Denon sound. Do you have any ideas?
I suggested the T50RP because it's inexpensive if you do the modding yourself and will appeal to those on a budget. The T50RP and modding supplies along with an amp like the new $99 Schiit would come in at about what the D2000 was available for. It's not the Denon style of sound, but still can give you the bass extension down to way low but not with the same phat bass sound as the Denons. The commercial mods like Mad Dog get more expensive (getting into D5000 territory). Thunderpants style mods can give more space in the sound, but still not the way the Denons did.
We may just have to hope that Fostex releases a new line that matches up with the old Denon line.
