The quiet signal that comes off the needle of a record player needs the extra boost of a phono stage to be heard. This unit has one built-in, though an external unit may well offer better quality.
Belt-driven turntables traditionally feature one or more motors spinning at a constant rate, connected to the platter with a rubber belt. They have very low vibration, ideal for Hi-Fi.

Quality sound matched with ease of use makes the Denon DP300 a classic all-rounder.
Quality construction for the best sound Using a 4mm-thick cabinet, the Denon DP300's plinth offers both rigidity and high density for the lowest levels of distortion. The aluminium platter also gives much better sonic results than plastic. Finished in gloss black it looks a cut above more basic decks and is the ideal match for your other, full-width, Hi-Fi separates.
High performance tonearm and cartridge Compatible with a wide range of cartridges, the straight tonearm used by the DP300 offers superior tracking ability. A good quality MM (Moving Magnet) cartridge is included in the package to get you started with minimum fuss.
Fully automatic for ease of use Unlike more minimalist decks, the DP300 combines great sound quality with total ease of use. Simply select the size of the record and the tonearm starts at just the right place. It also features auto-return, so you don't need to worry about damaging the stylus at the end of the record.
Connect up to any system with an AUX input The built-in phono stage means that you don't even need to use an amplifier or system with a dedicated turntable input - any system with an AUX input in will do.
Get the best sound, hassle-free, with the Denon DP300.

First-class fundamental GrammophonOwning a Pro-ject Debut Carbon Esprit with added Pro-ject 'bolt-on upgrades' as one's 'primary system', I wanted a second deck for my bedroom. There is one big 'let-down' with most 'high-end' and 'mid-range' decks: automation and this is one thing I seriously under-estimated in the past. One found one couldn't relax as one was always waiting to 'jump-up' at the end of play to lift the tonearm to prevent stylus/cantilever/record damage: hence automation was a prime factor. The Denon DP300 has a lovely smooth automation and is precise on stylus placement and retraction at the end. The whole deck is well manufactured and well engineered with a 'solid feel'. The cartridge and internal EQ amp perform well within prescribed parameters; although one will add an external phono-stage and upgraded cartridge at a later date but that-said there's no urgency as it's reproduction has impeccable manners. Very pleased. Only one comment is the embedded solid phono cable instead of RCA sockets

DENON DP300This is a great deck! Very easy to set up and use.
You can play your vinyl at the touch of a button and have no need to worry about taking the stylus off at the end of the record. Its has been really good to break out our old record collection again. The sound from this deck is really good.
One gripe is the built in phono stage seems pretty low. I have to turn the volume up to get a reasonable sound level. If you forget and switch to another input the speakers may suffer if you left it too high. I think I am going to invest in a decent pre amp to overcome this.

Great turntable and very affordableJust getting back into vinyl after a break of many years and this is the perfect start. The staff at richer sounds were incredible. Tried other stores who made me feel inadequate for not being an audiophile. I guess they miss out on my future purchases as well then.

Excellent sound qualityThe record deck was easy to set up. It is easy to use. The sound quality is first class, you would have to spend a lot more money to get anything better.

Sounds good, even with old 45's.I bought this on recommendation of the sales man, it was already set up and running in the shop, which meant I could hear it before I bought it. Easy to set up and use, and sounds good through the amp and speakers on even 1959 45's. Its quite large but sits above other components without looking out of sorts. Auto mode does take it too far into the single, but that's probably something I can adjust.

GREAT TURNTABLE !!!Fantastic and elegant design, easy to install and operate, fully automatic but also with the manual option. Fantastic Hi-Fi sound quality on both modern and vintage vinyl albums. My record collection has never sounded this good. I'd recommend this turntable to anyone who thinks about rediscovering the magic of the vinyl sound.
