Denon DP-300F Automatic Belt-drive Turntable

Features

Overview:

  • The DP-300F is a fully automatic turntable that is powered by a DC servo motor with a belt drive system.
  • The turntable is designed to work with dedicated phono inputs and standard line level inputs, so it can be used with almost any receiver or preamp.

Heavy Base Construction:

  • The heavy base construction improves performance by reducing the amount of vibration transmitted through the turntable.

Removable Tonearm Headshell:

  • A removable headshell makes cartridge replacement simple. Allows for any standard mount cartridge between 5 to 10 grams to be mounted and balanced.

Automatic Startup:

  • The automatic startup feature allows the turntable to begin play with the touch of a button. Once play has been completed, the tonearm will return to the armrest, so the stylus and record are not damaged or scratched.


Rigid Diecast Aluminum Turntable:

  • The diecast aluminum platter produces uniform rotation for smooth flutter free operation.

Manual Operation:

  • The turntable includes a manual lifter mechanism that allows you to place the needle on the record wherever you want.

Built-in RIAA Phono Equalizer Preamp:

  • The built-in phono equalizer preamp allows you to connect the turntable to an integrated amp or receiver that does not have a dedicated phono input.
  • This is a feature that can be turned off when using a receiver with a phono input.

Note:

  • The equalizer switch is set to the "ON" position from the factory.

33-1/3 and 45 RPM Compatible:

  • The turntable will play at 33-1/3 and 45 rpm speeds. An adapter is included for playing 45 rpm records.

MM Cartridge Included:

  • The DP-300F comes with a MM (Moving Magnet) cartridge, so you can begin to enjoy your record collection as soon as you take it out of the box.

Attached Output Cables:

  • The turntable has a hardwired output cable with left and right male RCA plugs. These can plug directly into your receiver or amplifier. There is no need for additional patch cables.
