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 1 out of 5 by from Look elsewhere Purchased this model early in 2016 and have used it regularly since that time. About a year ago the belt drive started malfunctioning periodically (needle placed over start position with no movement). Today the pre-amp gave out. Contacted Denon who told me the warranty was for 2 years (I am at 2.5). Denon apparently makes a product that you will enjoy for months to come. Buyer beware.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 'table for cost & performance Now on my 7th DP-300 F since 2009. Great product for cost & performance at the price point. Downsides have been known issues with RCA cables, original cartridges, & even the built-in phono pre-amp. HOPE ONE HAS A WARRANTY when something goes wrong as Denon recommends replacement only of entire unit ! I have had 2 go out due to short-out in the built-in RCA cable (s), 2 for the built-in phono pre-amp failure, & 1 for a bad cartridge (NOT COVERED under ANY warranty even if new). If a new cartridge is needed Denon original is a good starter, or, like me, I upgraded to a Ortofon 2M Red then a 2M Blue. Although pricier, one gets much improved staging & overall better audio. Overall, I still recommend Denon for its reputation & ease of use. When this 'table needs replacing I will look at Denon again. The DP-400 is coming !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing So I decided to purchase this product based on other reviews as well as the auto start auto stop features. The automatic start stop was 95% of why I bought the Denon dp300f. Then it stops working ... It fights you to start a record and it will touch the record and stop even if you try to do it manually it will take 5 minutes of fighting the player to hear your record. Just buy something else the main features of this turn table will end up malfunctioning and you'll be angry every time you try to start a record.

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

Hello. I purchased a Denon DP- 300F turntable as a Christmas gift for my daughter. We haven't figured out why the needle doesn't start at the beginning of the album (33 1/3 R.P.M). Which phone # shouldI call?

The arm of my record player doesn’t start at the beginning of the record. No matter what size it’s on it starts in the middle. I recalibrated it and nothing works. Any chance something is wrong with the motor? How do I fix this? Thank you

Is there anyway to control the Force in which the arm comes down on the record  surface. After u hit start  button.

Asked by: bigcat437

Hi there we own a Denon DP 300 F turn table which we bought in Europe and we are moving to the USA with it do the downconverters really work for this,I have heard that some of them don’t. Could you recommend one that works with your Dendon products. Thank

we live in Europe and purchased this TT recently. We are now moving to the States, will we be able to take it with us? Will it work in the US?

Asked by: kimH
Hey Kim H, All Denon units sold in North America are only 110/120V models. All 220V and 240V units are sold for other regions like Denon Europe and Denon Asia Pacific. With that said you would need a down converter since North America uses 120v. I hope this helps if not you can always give us a call to have one of our expert technical support team members assist with any other concerns you may have. Thanks, Denon North America

We're in a serviced apartment in New Orleans for Jazz Fest, which includes a mini-stereo system and a bunch of New Orleans records. Unfortunately the tone-arm has started returning without lifting, dragging the needle across the records. What can we do?

Asked by: GT from OZ
Hey GTfromOZ, It could be 1 of two reasons this is happening. The tonearm weight may need to be adjusted or this is a mechanical issue and the turntable will need to be serviced. I hope this helps if not you can always give us a call to have one of our expert technical support team members assist with any other concerns you may have. Thanks, Denon North America

I assembled my TurnTable DP-300F as instructed and plugged it into my phono inputs and I get no sound at all. Did I miss a step? Any tips/suggestions? Thank you in anticipation.

Asked by: MikeG
Hey MikeG, The DP-300F has a built-in PHONO Amp. If you are connecting to a PHONO input on your receiver with the PHONO amp turned off on the turntable then your receiver may be at fault. However, if you turn the PHONO amp ON for the turntable you should be able to get audio to your receiver via any RCA analog input you connect it to. If you are still unable to get audio you would need to contact your receiver manufacturer to help troubleshoot the receiver and possibly assist with your connections. Thanks, Denon North America
