Denon DP-300F Turntable Review

If you are looking for a new tabletop drum set, the Denon XP-series is an excellent option. This model has all of the best features of a quality acoustic set, at a price that will not break the bank. With its modern weighted tonearm, the Denon DP-300F offers exceptional playing performance for both beginners and professionals. Even at its lowest price, this model offers high quality performance that surpasses many high priced sets on the market today. Here are some things to look for in a quality drum set, whether it is for practice or performance:

The Denon DP-300F turntable comes with a heavy duty, precision-tuned tonearm featuring a variable, locking tonearm. The tonearm is designed with a heavier base assembly for reduced vibration and increased performance. The built-in, detachable tonearm headshell makes replacing a broken head easy. The standard headcover allows for nearly any standard drum cartridge from five to ten grams to be installed and balanced on the unit. The dust cover allows for easy cleaning and eliminates the need to purchase separate cleaners for the drum pad and the outer shell. Both the dust cover and the tonearm are covered by the two-year warranty offered on all Denon models.

The Denon DP-300F fully automatic digital turntable features a heavy-duty, aluminum tonearm. It features a variable lift system that lets you choose the appropriate speed for different song types. There is also an optional center channel speaker attachment called the center channel plug that lets you connect the unit directly to your stereo sound system. If you want a convenient feature that enhances your listening pleasure, however, you might consider upgrading to the Denon DP-300F or the Denon DKX Integrated Drive System.

One of the things that set the Denon DP-300F turntable apart from other competing brands is its “Automatic function” function. When you operate the unit, it operates like an auto record function, except it performs automatic recording with the push of a button. Once the function is turned on, all operations are operated automatically with smooth transitions from up and down movements of the tonearm, up and down movement of the belt, and also reverse movements. It features an in-built, random Repeat mode that allows you to record one track and then repeat it as many times as you want. This feature helps to save much needed time when you are performing multiple functions at the same time. Another major selling point for the Denon model is its ability to operate with a non-linear patterned vinyl, so all sounds have a smooth, non-destructive effect when delivered over the platter.

When you look at the Denon DP-300F features, what you will really see are the high-quality parts that are designed to fit into the body of the turntable. The tonearm, also known as the “Tonewood” has a precision bearing that offers precise tracking even at high speeds. The rubber tonearms are also made with a hi-fidelity construction that is not only comfortable to use but durable and resistant to scratching and fading. There is also a tonearm extension called the “Phylon” that incorporates rubber components. The Phylon extends high above the belt to create a rigid mid-section that is well supported and eliminates the need for a center channel plug. All three of the aforementioned components work in conjunction to provide a sturdy, rigid tonearm structure that is able to produce high quality audio.

A Denon DP-300F features a state-of-the-art DJX media format that incorporates an auto-return system that allows the unit to begin playing back a selected song when it reaches the trigger point on the phono equalizer. The automatic startup ensures that no pre-programmed settings will be stored onto the unit when it boots up. This allows the user to experience an endless variety of songs and beats thanks to the high-quality inputs available from the Denon DP-300F belt drive system.

  1. After nearly 30 years away, I returned to the record carousel at the end of last year. I’ve auditioned a number of turntables – some “cheap,” some “expensive,” and finally decided that the Denon DP-300F is the best match for my needs. No, it’s not the best model available, but it serves my purposes perfectly. Simple operation, attractive appearance, and, most importantly, fantastic sound. (There is one caveat, however. While the cartridge that comes with the DP-300F isn’t bad, I did upgrade to an Ortofon 2M Red, which provides a noticeable improvement in sound.) I had no idea how much I’d enjoy the automated function, but I do. I fell asleep listening to an album the other night, but no worries, the DP-300F handled it and I didn’t wake up to the sound of needle hiss, as I have with other turntables. And I got it for $329 here (not from a third party) a few weeks ago during a sale. Give it a shot; you could save a lot of money while getting great sound.

  2. I purchased this table in August, so it’s seen a lot of action. As a first purchase, I would suggest an Audio Technica Lp60 or LP 120 model, particularly for converting to audio files on a computer. For consumers who want to spend less and do not intend to upgrade to a better and more costly model, an Audio Technica LP 60 table may be preferable to this Denon 300 F. However, since the AT LP 60 is not long-lasting, the owner will most likely have to replace it in the future.

    The Denon 300 has flaws. Nothing secures the tonearm to the armrest. While it is an automatic, the tonearm does not always return to its resting place at the end of a side of a record. It’s indecisive; sometimes it’ll return to rest, and other times it won’t. This anomaly occurs on the same album, so the listener must pay attention. That’s how it is. It’s like the chance of a storm with the weather; you never know what it’ll be.

  3. To replace my old Technics SL-1600 direct drive, I bought my first Denon product, the DP-300F automatic turntable. I tried everything I could to keep the old boy alive, but it was time to let it go.

    I am very pleased with the Denon DP-300F. It works exactly as advertised, and I can once again enjoy the utter pleasure of vinyl (scratches and everything! ) that MP3s simply cannot provide. Crisp tops, thunderous rumbling lows, and a warm midrange that I’ve missed listening to on my IPOD. I’m so happy I saved all of my vinyl. This involves some minor assembly, but the instructions are so plain and simple that even a chimp might do it. It comes with everything you need to start listening as soon as you connect it to your receiver. The included cartridge is as good as or better than previous Ortofon cartridges I’ve used. I can’t tell the difference between a belt drive and a chain drive. WOW and flutter are non-existent, but don’t put the turntable too close to your speakers if you plan on cranking them up.

    This turntable has a sleek design and is easy to use. It won’t play 78s, but my 45s and 33 LPs sound fantastic.

    I’m overjoyed to have fantastic sound without having to pay hundreds of dollars more. This is an excellent benefit for both newcomers to vinyl and those with more critical ears. Remember that your home system is just as solid as its weakest link. To drive my tone, I use Klipsch towers and a strong Onkyo receiver.

    I adore it! Thank you so much, Denon. The delivery was extremely fast, and the packaging was excellent for such a delicate item.
