Weighted, Belt-Driven Platter: The Denon DP-400 turntable features a
weighted, belt-driven platter that provides precision playback of your vinyl
records that is faithful to the original recording.
- Speed Selector: The DP-400 turntable supports playback at 33 1/3
rpm, 45 rpm and 78 rpm (the record rpm is normally indicated on the jacket
or label of the record). It easily plays your entire vinyl collection with
- Auto Sense: Integrated auto sensor accurately controls the
platter, preventing unwanted speed fluctuations during playback so you can
enjoy audio reproduction exactly as the artist intended.
Solid-Built Construction: The turntable's solid-built construction
offers both the strength and high-density needed to reproduce detailed,
resonance-free music. Thick cabinet walls and a weighted platter provide the
optimal surface for your vinyl collection, reducing external vibration.
Specially Engineered Tone-Arm: The Denon DP-400 turntable features a
carefully engineered curved, horizontal tracking angled tone-arm with auto-lift
and playback stop. When the vinyl reaches the end of playback, the tone-arm
auto-lifts 10 seconds prior to the groove end and returns to its seated
position, preserving the excellent condition of your album. The curved tone-arm
design also reduces harmonic distortion, ensuring a crystal clear sonic signal
every time you listen. A counterweight is included and will need to be installed
on the tone-arm.
MM or MC Cartridge Compatible: The Denon DP-400 includes an MM
cartridge for more precise listening and added musical detail. If you prefer
listening via an MC cartridge, you can easily swap out the existing MM cartridge
to fit your audio preferences. The included MM cartridge does not come
pre-installed on the tone-arm; you will need to install the MM cartridge
headshell onto the tone-arm.
Note: The supplied stylus is good for approximately 400 hours of
playback. Replace the stylus in a timely fashion to prevent damage to your
record collection. When replacing the stylus, make sure to request the DSN-85.
Anti-skating adjustment is performed to counter the
force which pulls the stylus tip inside due to the record rotation. Make sure
that the anti-skating value is the same as the stylus pressure value. The
appropriate stylus pressure for the cartridge included with this unit is 2.0 g
Built-In Phono Equalizer Preamp: This turntable has a
built-in phono equalizer preamp that enables record playback when connected to
receivers and integrated amps with external audio inputs, but no dedicated Phono
input. The turntable's built-in phono equalizer creates an open, enveloping
sound stage that brings to life your vinyl collection while staying true to the
RCA Outputs: The DP-400 turntable features a set of stereo RCA outputs
to connect to your receiver or integrated amplifier using a set of stereo RCA
cables. A 39" stereo RCA cable is included.
Removable Dual-Purpose Dust Cover: The included removable dust cover
features a modern design, elevating the overall aesthetic of the DP-400
turntable, while also eliminating vibration issues that affect music quality
associated with attached or hinged covers. The dust cover must be removed during
playback of records. Doubling as a display stand for your album
cover, you can place the dust cover upright on the included base and show it of
proudly to family & friends.
Note: This is not a hinged dust cover. It simply lifts on and off.
The dust cover must be removed during playback of records. The dust cover
can be put back on the turntable once playback has stopped and the tone-arm
is back on its rest.
Auto Stop/Power Off Function: When the Automatic Stop is turned on,
the tone arm automatically raises after playback ends and the turntable
stops. This keeps the turntable from continuing to turn and cause stylus wear
should you accidentally fall asleep while listening to a record. The power will
turn off approximately 20 minutes after the turntable stops. Use the power/rpm
switch knob to restart playback.
