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.

Denon DP-300F Reviews

Good turntable June-30-15
Reviewer: Tanqueray Ed from Florida  
Easy set up.  Suggested settings worked for me.  Made very minor adjustments for tracking and weight after a few test runs.  

LP's had been boxed since the advent of CD's and are not in the best of condition.  They seem to sound better after a couple of plays.  Have a very good stereo system and had to do some adjusting to bass and treble levels.  Very satisfied with turntable.

Reviewer: Moscuba from Minnesota  
Very nice table, nice tonearm and very nice looking. I gave it a five-star rating for price / performance.


 
After some fine tuning, sounds phenomimal May-17-15
Reviewer: Ray H from Prospect Park, Pa  
Opening the box reveals parts and pieces I've never seen before.  This unit is far above the sophistication of the last "record player" I used, and still have, with a picture of "Fonzi" on the front.  

The directions are pretty straight forward, with the exception of tuning the needle. Very limited detail in instruction for needle tuning and issues with sound quality, possibly for my lack of experience.  Took me quite awhile to figure out, first, why the Greatful Dead sounded like chipmunks (didn't have the belt on correctly), then why the sound quality was aweful.  

For that, it took some trial and error with different albums to rule out the new album being at fault, then played with the weight on arm to remove some of the force on the needle. The directions are very limited and I would go so far as to say, lacking, especially in explaining that end weight adjustment and what your target is as far as tuning.  Still not 100% sure on that one.   I stopped when what was being played sounded right. Once that was done, unit works flawlessly, looks awesome, and sounds phenomenal on my basic system.  I have it running through a Yamaha Aventage  mid-grade receiver and 20 year old Polk Audio tower speakers.  Very happy with this purchase. Was a gift for my wife, and she loves it.  And it is simple enough, that our 6 year old turns it on and now plays my wife's Grateful Dead albums too.


 
Satisfied April-17-15
Reviewer: mdale from Indiana  
Well-packaged; easy to set-up; looks nice; runs well. Operation of the push-buttons is somewhat "clunky," but the automatic mechanism is smooth enough. The original cartridge was fine, but immediately chose to upgrade. The built-in pre-amp is good enough, but replacement with a better external pre-amp might be in the future.


 
Speed and electrical issues March-21-15
Reviewer: howard from Michigan  
Didn't use this unit much the first 2 months (which is the warranty time for Crutchfield). After starting to play it more, the speed started to fluctuate and on 3 occasions the motor just stopped under power. Sent it to Crutchfield's repair center. They seem like a class act. They notified me the motor is defective and it is on order with no ETA on when the unit will be returned to me. Word on the street is that this motor issue is a common problem and motors are back ordered by repair centers. I like the fit and finish of this unit and the sound, but, obviously not the dependability. I will update this review as I get more information. For now it gets a solid 1 star.
