S2000 and D2000 audio out to RK5 CH1, CH2 inputs
Cirklon sends CVs to RK5 CV In CH1,CH2
RK5 two outputs go to a Mixer Module
Mixer Module to Bass Amp

RK5 fits very nicely with D2000 and a good combo with S and D 2000.

Nice with the RK-5 mounted in the D-2000! How do you power it? Not from the D-2000 supply?

Of course from the D-2000. Why not?

The RK5 needs about 200mA at peak power on, right? Would the RK6 work in the D2000 power ribbon as well?

Yes if the power brick can put out enough current. Make sure it's a 5 amp brick.

Thank you for answering!

So I can use the 16-pin Euro power cable behind the panel of the D-2000 and that would be enough for the RK5 (and not cause any problems with the D-2000 performance)? I thought the RK needed -12v as well and that the D-2000 only gives out +12...

Would be super if ok to do so!

I think you are misunderstanding the manual. The D-2000 provides +12 and -4.5 volts. RK5 should work.
