Denon DP 300F Fully Automatic Analog Turntable

By Denon


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.

The Denon DP-300F Fully Automatic Turntable Record Player offers simple operation with phono equaliser. Its high inertial mass stabilises your vinyl rotation and archives clean playback.

Refined External Design

The DP-300F's 4mm-thick cabinet wall that offers both strength and high density has been beautifully finished with a glossy coating. The straight tonearm and aluminium diecast turntable have been formed in a slim, textually attractive design. With a body width of 434mm, it combines very elegantly with full-size system components.

Straight Tone Arm

The DP-300F's straight tone arm brings out the maximum performance of cartridges with superior tracing capabilities. The supplied cartridge can be replaced with a variety of commercially available cartridges. (Compatible cartridge weight: 4.5 - 9.5 g)

Diecast Aluminium Turntable

The DP-300F's turntable has been constructed of diecast Aluminium to achieve high inertial mass for stable rotation. The vibration-resistant turntable sheet is about 5mm thick and uses hologram vibration analysis to improve its ability to hold a record.

Fully Automatic Player

When the 30cm or 17cm record size is selected, with a simple operation the tonearm automatically moves and plays the record and then returns when playback ends.

Different cartridges can be used as desired, and since fine adjustments can also be made for anti-skating and zero balance, ideal conditions for playing a record can be achieved.

Built-in PHONO Equalizer

Since the DP-300F includes a built-in PHONO equalizer, it can be connected directly to a mini component or integrated amp that does not have a PHONO terminal.(ON/OFF switchable)

Manual Arm Lifter

The DP-300F is also equipped with an arm lifter mechanism to facilitate manual operation. The arm lifter makes it easy to place or remove the needle from any location on the record.
