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.

Reviews And Awards - DP-300F

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 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 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 Nice Turntable I really like the fully automatic feature, and it sounds great. Too bad the stylus broke prematurely, not just on mine, but on my Son's also. I think Denon might have an issue with faulty stylus's on this model. And they don't cover them under warranty.

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.

Q&A - DP-300F

I can't get the tone arm to balance. The closest I get is where neither end is resting on anything but the cartridge end is higher than the weight end and does not rest on the tone arm rest. Any suggestions?

Asked by: Edward5
Hello Edward5, My suggestion is to be very gentle and work slowly on it. It does take some patience to get it set up properly. The tone arm should be floating level. Make sure the lever on the side is set in the UP position while you are doing this.

I've had this turntable with a preamp for about two years now, always worked fine. Just today I find that the music sounds like it's coming from inside a tunnel; probably a grounding issue. Is there a switch I'm missing?

Asked by: daezer
Hello daezer, There is a swtich on the inside of that turntable, but if that hasn't been changed then there should be no difference. Please give us a call at 201-762-6665 M-F 10am-7pm. That turntable has a 2 year warranty.

So after using my turntable for a few months, the left speaker started to distort. After troubleshooting, I discovered it’s the RCA cables going into my amp.. any options on how to fix this?

Hi. What brand and model cartridge comes mounted on the DP-300F? Is this a god turntable for an entry level audiophile?

Asked by: Dickshad64
Hello, The cartridge that comes on the Denon DP-300F is our own cartridge. This is a great turntable for an entry level audiophile. You are able to change the cartridge if you do not like the one that comes on it. The DL103 is a great one to use too if you get a phono pre amp.

I will upgrade my cartridge and I would like to know which of these 4 opcions is the best and at the same time compatible with my do300f: 1)Ortofon 2M red($99) 2)Ortofon 2M red verso($99) 3)Grado Black1($75),Green($95) 4)Sumiko Pearl($119)

Asked by: Daniel Pereira
Hello Daniel Pereira, Any one of those will work. But the only thing is you want to make sure you are using a phono pre-amp that has a MM/MC switch on it.

Hi, great turntable, 1. Can I upgrade the cartridge to a Clearaudio MM Concept (10 grams) ? are the feet of the turntable adjustable in height ?

Asked by: yomero
Hello yomero, You can upgrade the cartridge, just make sure you are using a Phono Pre-amp that has a MC/MM switch on it. The feet are not adjustable. You can take them off or have them on.
