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 1 out of 5 by from Speed issues Unfortunately, what I thought was a great deal on a turntable wasn't. After just under a year, and not much play the turntable plays records with audible variations in speed. I have had great experience with Denon products before, but this makes me not want to go there again.

Q&A - DP-300F

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

Hey Denon Customer, We will need more information in order to provide adequate troubleshooting. Please give us a call to have one of our expert technical support team members assist with this and any other concerns you may have. Thanks, Denon North America

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.

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 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

How to i stop the automatic function when my record stops as it doesnt lift and damages my records

Asked by: QuantumAbility
Hey QuantumAbility, So This set has an “auto return” function by which the tone arm automatically returns to its original position once a specific point is reached after a record finishes playing. Though there is no problem with records of normal size, with records including grooves up to this point, the auto return function may be activated before playback is finished. The autoplay system cannot be used for 9 ft/25 cm records. In this case, operate manually. If the tone arm does not return to its original position after playback stops, press STOP. 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.

Hi Denon, I am moving from the US to the EU and would love to bring my 300F turntable. Is the power automatically adjusted if I plug it in in Europe? In other words, does it have a switching power supply?

Asked by: kuenala
Hey Kuenala, Unfortunately, this turntable does not have a switch to make it compatible with Europe standards which is 230w. You will need a 3rd party hardware device to convert the wattage over to make it compatible with the Euro standards.

 I noticed that I have a hum in my speakers when I use this unit. I currently have an ortofon 2m red cartridge and everything seems to be wired correctly but I did notice that the table and table does not come with a ground cable.   

Asked by: Jonghg
This is most likely, one one of two things: bad grounding amongst any of your equipment or not clean power to the equipment. Power the turntable from amplifier, check all phono plug connections as well as wires that plug into the cartridge. Also recommend about a 1.4kVa UPS, will give you clean power isolated from other motors/devices in your home

Does the Denon DP300 F Turntable come packaged with a needle? Where can I buy the needle for the Denon DP300 F Turntable

Asked by: Muzbizpro
The cartridge should have come with the unit. Contact where you purchased or contact Denon. As a alternative, consider a Ortofon 2M Red or upgrade further up to the 2M Blue. Both are pricey but are great. Suggest contacting the Needle Doctor for pricing.

Just got my DP 300 F, set up was simple, however if I use the automatic start, the stylus drags across the surface of my record. It does that on LP's as well as 45's. Is there an adjustment to fix that, or do I need to return it?

When finishing the record and when hitting the stop button, the tone arm scratches completely the record when returning back to its position. The device is brand new from the shop. Is it just faulty? 

Asked by: Bibi
There is a small screw in the top of the tonearm lift. Take a small phillips head screwdriver and back off on the screw. This adjusts how far the lift raises the tonearm.If it is tightened too much, it won't raise the tonearm high enough to clear the record. After I adjusted mine, no problem. Hope this helps.

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.
