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 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, can you confirm that turning the internal preamp / equaliser off means that it will be bypassed completely and the sound being output into an external phono preamp will be completely unaffected, coming straight from the cartridge? Thank you!

Asked by: Razvan
Hello Razvan, Yes, when the internal preamp is turned off that means the sound output is just the sound coming straight from the cartridge.

Hi There, My Denon DP300F turntable has an automatic tonearm. However, when starting, the tonearm drops halfway the record. What do i do wrong and how can i prevent this? Kind regards! Arthur

Asked by: ArthurvDeijk
Hi Arthur, I would recommend changing the size / speed and see if the same thing occurs. If so, then the mechanism is faulty and the unit will need to be evaluated.

Hello, I have followed all of the setup instructions, but when I hit play, the tonearm swing almost to the end (middle) of the record before lowering. I have the setting correct with regards to record size. Any ideas what to do?

I just set up my DP-300F and didn't adjust the equalizer (I left it in the state I received it in upon opening). If I connect my turntable to a set of powered speakers (Audioengine A2+) will my records play clearly? Or should I have adjusted the equalizer

Asked by: cdude112
Hello cdude112, Your records will play fine without adjusting the equalizer. Make sure the turntable is set to Auxiliary, the switch is on the bottom of the unit. Do not leave it in Phono.

I’ve got a couple of studio monitors I’m currently using with another setup. Can this turntable connect directly to the monitors using the built in preamp? I’m planning on buying a proper amp in future but for now, I’ll get sound, right?

Asked by: Example123
Hello Example123, yes the DP-300F does have a built-in phono pre-amp. You will be able to connect it to the monitor speakers. The switch for auxiliary vs phono is on the bottom of the turntable.

Hi. Would a separate pre amp sound better on this turntable than the built in pre amp?

Asked by: Jamstzr6
Hi Jam, I've put in an old school NAD 302 amp (only using it for its phono preamp) inbetween the turntable and my tube amp and I can confirm that the sound opens up quite a bit. I'd guess a higher performance dedicated phono preamp would sound even better (I'm planning on getting an EAR 834 clone at some point). As I've asked below, I just need to confirm that by disabling the internal one, it gets completely bypassed and doesn't affect signal (otherwise I'd have to open it up and bypass it physically).

The sound is fuzzy when I play LPs (static) and I wonder if I need to "ground" the turntable. If so, how would I do that? Thanks!

Asked by: slarue
Hello slarue, when you have a fuzzy sound coming from the turntable it is usually means the stylus needs to be cleaned or replaced. Try that first. Normally it is not a grounding issue.
