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.

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.


 
DP-300F Great Turntable March-14-15
Reviewer: GaryM from Maryland  
Got some advice from Crutchfield's Dean and picked out the DP-300F.  Works great.  Out of the box, it took about 45min to set up.  The old vinyl collection sounds good again.  Definitely happy with this turntable.


 
So far, so good. Setup? March-05-15
Reviewer: Kevin from Texas  
I'm good with this turntable.  The sound quality out of the box is good, stereo separation fine, the automatic system works well, it looks good, operates effectively at a working mans price.  My issue came during setup.  I tried to follow the tone arm  balancing procedure.  I must not get it.  I tried to 'balance' the tone arm so the needle was parallel to or slightly below the record as instructed.  Done.  Would not play.  Not enough downward pressure.  Added more pressure by adjusting the counter weight inward..  Barely played.  Skipped like a schoolgirl in a play yard.  More pressure.  Played but skipped a time or two over the course of four or five LP sides..  Finally, adjusted even more pressure.  Jeez.  Am I doing this right?  Works like a champ.  No skipping.  I do not have any distortion at any volume level.


 
Great Entry-Level Turntable February-16-15
Reviewer: MGB from Massachusetts  
Put simply, I was looking for an entry-level turntable that is fully automatic and won't damage my records. The Denon DP-300F has exceeded all of my expectations. The build quality is great and it was a snap to setup. Though unlikely to please the audiophile, it sounds great on my system, and the built-in pre-amp is an added bonus for those on a budget. You can find turntables in this price range that sound a bit better, but they won't be fully automatic. I'm confident that I'll continue to enjoy this turntable over the coming years by gradually upgrading components (better cartridge, better pre-amp, etc).


 
Denon dp300f February-07-15
Reviewer: Cisco from Washington  
If you are going to do anything other than sit and critically listen to vinyl, this is your ticket to paradise if you want a budget automatic. Yes, the cover feels cheap, the buttons clunky, and the automatic mechanism is not exactly Swiss watch caliber. However, that doesn't matter after the arm drops nicely onto your record and picks up just as well when it's finished. The parts that move and transmit sound are more isolated than I thought they would be. Surprisingly so, actually. The automatic function will never quit in your lifetime if it works the first few times and you clean and re-lube the mechanism every decade or two. I play the horse poop out of mine and still going strong. You will need to buy an upgraded cartridge if you want quality sound. I already had an AT120E which I really like so this was a no brainer. If you want an Ortofon Red you should buy the upgraded package deal. Any other combination and the choice is up to you.
