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.

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.

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 set tone arm via directions. It rough starts on the album. Same when it stops. Note arm lever adjustment came at max height out of the box. I had to adjust screw all the way down to get lever to engage.  Why would arm lever come set like that? 

Asked by: Pls fix it
Hello, The tone arm is not set to anything out of the box. You have to put the weight on and set the anti-skate yourself, that is not done out of the box. Something may of been touched when it was lifted out of the box but it does not come set.
