Is there any way someone could go through this thread and extract the useful information and delete the rest of it? Who has time to wade through all this bullsh*t?

I don't think that there should be too much useful information on a thread CD3000 related, for the ones that do not enjoy their magnificent sound..... but anyway if the thread starter wants, a mod could do the job for him, I think, and BTW remove some of the swearing also, not needed at all, and forbbiden some time ago here.....

Wow... not only do I have a 3000 Woody I have a .357 Woody!

Actually that's the stock grip. I'd take a pic but I don't feel like unlocking everything and pulling her out...

sorry to wonder, but...
Xanadu777 has a very good point about how insanely vauge Sony is in the spec sheet description of what the products materials are made from. But this isn't anything new! Companies do it all the time to divert attention from any possible shortcomings they might have had in creating the product. And by shortcomings I mean certain materials that they might have used to cut costs that would otherwise make the product look less *high end.* They then use very vauge and ambiguous language to make it sound as if the better materials used in the products construction were in fact the only materials used therefore cleaverly *overlooking* the possibly cheaper materials used. Again, this doesn't surprise me...I've seen many companies do this in order to make their products(s) sound better than they actually are. When it comes down to it, it is simply a marketing technique. And what the hell are they talking about when they say, organic fiber/plastic housing. Is it possible for something to be both organic and plastic at the same time? My thinking is along the same lines as Xanadu...I don't think the organic fiber description is referring to the actual inside of the cup. If one thing is clear, it is that Sony is purposely being unclear. But I admit, I also couild be wrong.

Sov, don't take this stuff so seriously man. It is almost as if when Sony gets bashed, part of your own *sole* is bashed or wounded. To make you feel better, I've seen Sennheiser write ambiguous, unclear stuff like this too. Again, most companies that sell *high-end* products are guilty of the exact same thing. And don't always take what Sony reports on their spec sheets as the absolute/gospel/set-in-stone truth. If you are like most people, I would think you would want to find out the honest truth regarding Sony's ambiguous, and vague spec sheet statements. It sure as hell bugs me!

well this was a fun thread to troll, i thought i'd add my 2 cents. looking at your lineup of woodies, i was surprised not to see any form of Redwood there. In guitars, Redwood is considered the king of tonewoods. Maple, your most expensive option, is known for being dense and hard and very "bright" reflectively with almost no bass. Mahoghany is a softer wood that has alot of warm midrange and a mushy bass. But Redwood has beautiful distinct tone all throughout the spectrum - deep rich clear bass, sparkling highs without being harsh, and a midrange that clapton called "a woman crying" whose endorsement you can't get much better than.

also, have you tried hollowing out the cup to make it thinner? of course, the thinner the wood the more it will resonate. i'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad. i bet the best woody cup would be a thin one that is as shallow as you can make it - otherwise the sound chamber will be too big and boomy.

i applaud your efforts, good luck on your woody mods! if you ever do one for grados to make them "closed" i might be interested lol! I tried just using my hands as cups and had fun with the "whooweewhoowee" of opening and closing my hands - go flesh cups!
