FEATURES - DP-300F

The DP-300F has been designed with heavier base construction for reduced vibration and improved performance. The all new tonearm has a removable headshell making cartridge replacement simple. The standard mount headshell allows for any standard mount cartridge between 5 ~ 10 grams to be mounted and balanced. The automatic startup feature allows the turntable to begin play with the touch of a button, and once play has been completed, the tonearm will be returned to the armrest gently so that the stylus and record are not damaged or scratched. The turntable is made of rigid diecast aluminum to produce uniform rotation for smooth flutter free operation. There is also a manual lifter mechanism that allows you to place the needle on the record wherever you want, so you can skip to a different song in the middle of a side.

The DP-300F includes a built-in phono equalizer to connect the player to an integrated amp or receiver that does not have its own phono input. This turntable is powered by a DC servo motor and belt drive system and has rotation speeds of 33 1/3 or 45 rpm. It comes with a MM cartridge so that you can begin to enjoy your analog record collection as soon as you connect the DP-300F to your home hi-fi system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Player at a Great Price There's no way around the fact that there are many great turntables on the market right now. It's hard to pick a table because of how many tables offer attractive designs, great features, and build quality. U-Turn, Pro-ject, Technics, and many other brands all offer great products. However, when I found out about the Denon DP-300F, I was sold. Great reviews indicated almost unanimous satisfaction with the table, and the Denon name has been associated with quality products for years. Great specs and a clean look paired with automatic operation made this table an obvious winner in its price bracket. I placed an order and waited for my new table to come in the mail. As soon as my turntable came in the mail, I opened it up and set it up. Setup was easy and took all of 15 minutes, and from there I was off to the races. I threw my copy of Journey's Greatest Hits on the table, hit start, and was blown away. Great sound quality and super smooth operation from the automatic mechanism. A few records later and I'm beyond pleased with my new table. I've no doubt that this table will last me a long time, as evidenced by the fantastic sound it provides. I don't often write reviews, but I am so happy with the performance of this turntable that I had no other option but to leave a review. It you are on the edge, all I can do is recommend this table. You will absolutely not regret your decision to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Turntable I am along time 40+ year audiophile who has owned and auditioned some of the best equipment in the world over that time. I'm not bragging, just saying this ain't my first rodeo..or should I say, my first turntable. Like many folks I had drifted more to the digital format because of convenience and availability. I had sold my previous turntable a few years back, but retained a vast LP collection. After a lot of research ( I have FOBO...fear of better options! haha!) I decide on the Denon dp-300f with some upgrades (cork mat and Ortofon M2 Red Cartridge and Stylus). I can honestly say I made a excellent choice. I have owned only one automatic turntable in my life, a Dual 1218 and that was over 40 years ago! I like the convenience of an automatic both for myself, but mostly, so my wife would feel comfortable using it, but I was hesitant of the quality aspect having owned manual tables with separate arms. The build quality of this table, in respect to it's price, is excellent. I have read a number of nitpick reviews from people who either got a bad sample, certainly possible, or are looking or comparing this to a $3000 turntable, which it certainly is not! Operation and set up is a snap, with even YouTube videos available for the newcomer. While I can't comment on the stock cartridge, I believe most non "Golden Ears" will find it usable and you can easily upgrade the cartridge at a later date. Let me say, as with any audio equipment..Please, please audition it if you can before you buy!! I could ramble on longer, but just let me say that if you looking for an automatic turntable or manual turntable (p.s. you can use this in the manual mode also, if you like.) in the $200-$400 range, you will be hard pressed to find a better value than the Denon dp-300f!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good turntable with a few bad faults I can't comment on the preamp since I have never used it, but most turntables with built in preamps have ones that cannot measure up to an external preamp, or one built into a good quality receiver or integrated amp. This would be a great turntable if it had a tonearm latch, RCA output jacks (not a lousy built in wire), a grounding wire, and better shielding. Nix the bad cartridge it comes with, and perhaps the built in preamp, and put the cost of those into these needed improvements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. This is my first turntable. First one year I'm using the supplied catridge then upgrade to Denon dl110 HOMC sounds great for connecting my Cambridge audio 651p phono preamp.

Hi there, I have the Denon DP-300F and the start/stop mechanism stuck in an endless loop of tonearm going to the initial position of the vinyl, then it returns to standby position and all movement is repeated again... any hints on this? Best,Mobbr

Asked by: Mobbr
Unfortunately this seems like a problem with the turntable. I would suggest contacting the dealer you purchased it from for service.

I have had my turntable for over a year so I had to get a new stylus. However I am getting feedback like the bottom is gliding on the vinyl but it is not. I put the original stylus and the replacement side by side and they are same size.

Asked by: Big Dog
Hi Big Dog. If that's the case, and the original stylus didn't have that problem, the replacement stylus may be defective. I would suggest contacting the dealer it was purchased from to exchange it. Thanks!

Is there the option (like a number of turntable makers have done) to download the music on to a USB port so I can play the Flaash Drive in the car? I have a total Denon Surround Sound system with Cassette and Cd decks attached.

Asked by: Dr Frank
The DP-300F does not copy to USB. You may prefer the DP-200USB, which does record your records to a USB stick, and comes with software to cut it into separate tracks. You can read more about the DP-200USB at the link below. Thanks! https://usa.denon.com/us/product/hifi/turntables/dp200usb

Can I connect my turntable to Heos Amp and would you recommend it as a good choise?

Asked by: waspinawig
It is possible to connect a DP-300F turntable to a HEOS amp. To do this, make sure the EQ switch on the turntable is in the ON position, and connect the turntable to the Line In terminal on the HEOS Amp. Please see the FAQ at the link below for reference. Thanks! http://denon.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4044/session/L3RpbWUvMTQ5NDg3NTI0OS9zaWQvRkhwdFpFaW4=

When i push start the arm goes up and starts on the last track. How do i make it start on track one

Asked by: jimijam
If it does this, you may have the size switch set to 17cm instead of 30cm. A 17cm record is usually a single, so it makes sense that it would drop near the last track rather than starting at the beginning.

I have noticed the speed fluctuating slightly a few times, is this the result of a worn belt?

Asked by: Kre8ive27
No, maybe.  But with mine it was because the factory or someone got a dab of grease on the drive spindle.  It was fine till I switched it to 45 RPM, that's when the slippery stuff got onto the drive spindle, belt, and platter???  Had to remove the platter, and belt and wash them with dish soap and water.  Rinsed and dried.  Cleaned spindle with isopropyl alcohol and Q-tip.  Reassembled and works fine. I want to know where the grease came from.  Eh, Denon.  You or ND.
