Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Value In Performanec and Convenience The Denon DP300F has been around a while and deservedly so. Good full-auto ‘tables for less than $500 are rare, and this would certainly seem to be a good one. Initial set-up was quick and painless, and I was spinning vinyl in just a few minutes. Arm action is smooth and quiet. Sound quality is quite good, all things considered, and can always be improved with an upgraded stylus or cartridge. No complaints here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best automatic turntable for the price! I have always been a vinyl junkie, always. Last Christmas (2021), I decide to replace the main turntable in my home theater set up. I was using Gramavox's "Floating Record" vertical turntable at the time, mainly for it's visual appeal and "wow factor". While it is a great turntable in many ways, it also has several drawbacks including being a 100% manual turntable, and it is a very delicate & fragile unit with horrible skating issues and a heavy tracking force. I started off in the <$200 range and purchased a unit by a new company called "Angel Horn" for about $150. It was gorgeous to look at but had horrible motor issues resulting in unstable turntable speeds that would fluctuate WILDLY during a record playback. After returning 2 units for the same issue I figured I should probably up my budget to get a record player of better quality. That is when I found my Denon DP-300F, with a reduced price for the holidays, so I bought it. Right out of the box, I was impressed with its rich, polished appearance and obvious high quality construction. It is a thing of beauty! The set up was very standard, so quite easy, and it was ready for a test spin after about 10 minutes. The automatic features are silent, smooth and swift with incredible accuracy. The sound reproduction is a strong point here too with a solid built in preamp and decent cartridge/stylus included to get you started. I have been using this almost daily since then (about 8 months now) and I am still in awe of my new "toy". Even though I would certainly recommend this one to a friend ( I already have, actually), and would buy it again if I had to replace it, there are two small issues I have with it that I want to share . First, the included cartridge & stylus, while certainly useable, should really be upgraded to something a bit better. Mine had some real trouble handling some music fade outs at the end of a song. Often the sound would drop out on a channel then return & drop out on the other channel just to come back & drop out all together in the middle of a fade. I double & triple checked the tracking force, and anti-skate setting before giving up & replacing it with an Ortofon 2M Red. That problem was solved. Second, while the rotating speeds are EXTREMELY stable on both 45 & 33 1/3, it spins just slightly faster than it should, usually around 46-46.5 rpm & 34-34.2 rpm. While nothing major, it is slightly noticeable and should be just a bit more accurate. All in all, I truly enjoy my turntable and I look forward to many years of use from it.

Questions

I am using an external phono preamp with the DP-300F. Is there any place on the turntable I can connect a ground wire to my preamp ?

Asked by: Mad85704
Hello, The DP-300F does not have a port for a grounding wire. If you are not experiencing any audible hum, a grounding wire isn't necssary.

I have an Onkyo TX-SV50PRO, will the DP-300F turntable be a suitable compatible and can you recommend a reliable retailer in my area

Asked by: Frank51
Hello, Yes - the DP-300F will work well with your Onkyo TX-SV50Pro. The DP-300F has a built-in phono pre-amplifier, so you can choose between that and the phono pre-amp in your Onkyo receiver. If using the phono pre-amp built into the DP-300F, you will want to connect your turntable to any line input port on the rear of your Onkyo receiver (not the phono input). Here is a link with how to find a retailer in your area. Unfortunately, I cannot make specific recommendations as I have no experience with shopping at Denon authorized retailers in your area: https://www.denon.com/en-us/findaretailer.html

My old turntable had a ground wire I've noticed the denon doesn't will it work OK with my denon reciever Avr 2807 and do I have the phono switch turned off

Asked by: Mark62
Hi Mark, Yes - the DP-300F will work with your AVR-2807. The DP-300F will need to be connected to the AVR-2807's phono input if you have the phono stage of the DP-300F switched to off.

33 rpm records play at a slightly faster speed than normal. I listened to the same songs on my streaming service. I checked my tone arm adjustment and it&rsquo;s correct. Using original cartridge and stylus with correct anti skating setting. Sound is good.

I just purchased the DP-300F turntable with the PMA-600NE amplifier over at Polk with accompanying speakers. I haven&rsquo;t received it yet, but I know I already want to upgrade the cartridge/stylus. Would the Ortofon 2M/2M Verso Blue cartridge be compatible?

Asked by: DanielJayE
Hello, Yes - the Ortofon 2M Series cartridges are a very good choice for an upgrade for the DP-300F. Be sure to pick the regular 2M Blue and not the Verso version. The Verso version in designed specificaly for older Thorens models which bolt differently.

I have recived this model turntable from my friends as a gift. What kind speakers do I need to use for beginner user? I'll be appreciated with your recommendation.

Asked by: Organek
Hi Organek, That's a very nice gift you have there. If you wish to keep your set-up as simple as possible, I suggest having a look at our Home speakers. They have a connection in the back (AUX) which your turntable connects to. You will just need to add a 3.5mm (male) to RCA (female) cable to complete the connection. These are easily found on Amazon. While a single Home speaker produces stereo sound, a second of the same speaker can be added to the same room, and paired with the first speaker to create a wider-ranging stereo effect when placed further apart. Here is a link to our Home speakers: https://www.denon.com/en-us/category/wireless-speakers/ The Home speakers also have a HEOS engine built-in. This means you can download the free HEOS app and access many popular streaming services, or even just play any music you have on your mobile device. If you haven't done so already, have good look at the manual for the DP-300F, as it contains important information about the equalizer switch on page 2. It will need to be switched to the 'on' mode.

I have a Yamaha MC-100 cartridge (with a hard-shell from the 1980s) (1.4+/-0.2g tracking force, output 0.2mV, 30 ohm impedance, and weight 9.6g) would it work with the DP-300F or DP-400? Does one need a different hard-shell and/or equalization/preamp?

Asked by: RonS
Hi RonS, The MC-100 will work well for either the DP-300 or DP-400, but you will need either a step-up transformer or a stand alone phono pre-amp which handles low output moving coil cartridges. If your MC-100 is a stock model, I would consider looking at a re-tip. Cartridges that old are likely to damage your LPs. 2-4 years of regular use is about as much as can be expected for the life of a moving coil cartridge before it is past it's best. That being said, we have the superb DL-103R available for about the cost of a good re-tip. Or you could pay a little less for the excellent value DL-110, which is a high-output moving coil design. This means it does not require a step-up transformer or a stand alone phono pre-amp. The DL-110 works very well with either of the tables you mention, and is very popular with vinyl enthusiasts who want moving coil sound from a moving magnet price. https://www.denon.com/en-us/product/turntables/dl-110
