Overview Details Accessories
 

Still cherish your vinyl record collection? Treat yourself to warm sound with Denon's DP-300F turntable. Its precision die-cast aluminum platter ensures stable rotation for rock-solid playback. The tonearm features adjustable balance and anti-skating controls for proper tracking. And its sturdy base minimizes the vibrations that can compromise sound quality.

Automatic playback with manual control

Fully automatic operation makes the DP-300F easy to use. With the touch of a button, the tonearm swings over and begins playing your record, returning to its original position when finished. The manual lifter mechanism lets you accurately place the stylus on the record wherever you want without scratching.

Switchable phono preamp for hookup flexibility

DP-300F features a built-in phono preamp that lets you connect the turntable to an ordinary auxiliary input on your receiver or audio system. But if your receiver has a dedicated phono input, and you'd prefer to use it, you can switch off the preamp.

Best In Class February-03-16
Reviewer: Jim E from raleigh, NC  
This TT fits the bill.  It is well constructed and the tone arm assembly is a very nice.  The auto start does a nice job of setting the stylus down softly and at the right spot.  I like the fact you can change out the head shell and adjust the counterweight and anti-skate.  The head shell locks in tight and the tonearm is decent.  I have a bunch of older albums from the 70s and they sound really good.  I was surprised by the lack of surface noise and clicks.  The sound quality is an improvement over my original Technics SLBD22 TT.  I have seen a lot of reviews criticizing this stock cartridge, but it looks like a quality cartridge and I think an elliptical stylus would be a smart upgrade once this one gets played out. I have not tried the built in phono amp but that is a nice feature if your receiver doesn't have a phono input.  Also, I have seen a lot of reviews criticizing this turntable because it doesn't have a USB for recording onto computers. I have been recording from my non-USB turntable onto my computer for over 10 years so don't let the lack of a USB plug sway you from buying this TT.  I think it is the best in class for an automatic TT.

Great so far! January-04-16
Reviewer: Hillery from Georgia  
Great turntable that I got to replace a 29-year old Kenwood turntable.  I wanted a belt-drive turntable and one with automatic return and shutoff.  The Denon was the highest reviewed of the tables that offered that.  I am happy so far with the sound and the performance.  It looks great and plays great.  The only thing that I am less than 100% pleased with are the buttons for changing the speed and size of record.  The button to push to change the size of the record being played is very tight and feels somewhat 'mechanical' for lack of a better word.  I am sure it's because it is throwing some lever underneath so the tone arm will land on either a 33 or 45 sized record.  However, with the nice feel of all the other controls, it is a little disappointing.


 
Great product December-27-15
Reviewer: Matt W from Ohio  
Love the turntable. Like the auto features, I fall asleep sometimes and it comes in handy. Received product with a broken dust cover. Crutchfield sent me a new one immediately. The sound of the turntable is good, I feel that it would benefit from a cartridge upgrade. All in all, I am very pleased with it. Great turntable for the money. Crutchfield service rocks. I will continue to buy products from them.


 
Best Auto/semi-auto TT you can buy October-02-15
Reviewer: PNS from Georgia  
First let me say I have two systems, and this one is with a Marantz stereo receiver, Monitor Audio Pedestal Speakers, Vincent cartridge preamp, Klipsch subwoofer, Grado Prestige Green Cartridge, 16 gauge micro strand cables (about $3000 system).  This turntable is simply outstanding with the luxury of auto return.  No one in their right mind will eject to the record because there was never an industry standard for lead in grooves.  With my other system, I have a manual Rega, which requires me to jump up to lift it off the record.  You can imagine which system I play when I'm working, but with either one I feel the sound is quite excellent.  The Marantz auto TT is really its only competition and it doesn't come close (rebadged Dual TT with a Dual cartridge.  Yes they still make TTs in Germany, but mostly for other companies).  

I will say that if you use the internal preamp with that throw away cartridge, you don't get the real value out of the turntable.
