Curses. I was planning to sell my denons for lcd2s, but wasn't getting any hits. So I took the denons out of the classified while a hard case is on the way, to guarantee more protection for shipping. So I decided to try a mod on a mod for the denons, which is removing one of the strips of dynamate from the rear driver, and repeatedly denting the hell out of the dynamate in the cup. The purpose of both was to tame the highs a bit more. I also added some easy to remove foam to do the same thing.
Result: Dammit. Dammit all. These sound better than ever now. Curses. Massive Curses.
