Anniversary Edition DP-A100 Turntable

You Pay:


The history of Denon turntables commenced in 1910 with the production of Japan’s first gramophone and peaked in 1939 when Denon developed a disc recorder for NHK. Denon turntables were used not only by general users but by many radio stations professionals as well. In 1970, Denon developed its own high-torque AC motor for low speeds where speed was controlled by highly precise detection of magnetic pulses recorded around the perimeter of the platter. Denon incorporated this epoch-making servo technology in its development of the direct-drive turntable whose high performance and reliability represented a clear break from conventional idler and belt drive products, and earned Denon a solid position as the brand for players used at radio stations.

In the following year, the turntable was adapted for consumer use, and Denon, which continued to produce direct-drive players, became an unforgettable brand of analog players among audio enthusiasts. The DP-A100 player is being released as a Denon anniversary model with the same high-performance Denon direct-drive turntable technology that has delivered cogging-free, high-precision rotation for 40 years. Equipped with the DL-A100 cartridge, the DP-A100 is capable of masterfully reproducing the energy and beauty of analog discs.
