Premium Vinyl Playback
This is the flagship, premium direct drive turntable from Denon®. All design aspects were selected to deliver accurate playback, from the S-shaped tonearm to the powerful direct drive motor to the tonearm vertical height adjustment. Solid construction and sturdy insulator feet provide the strength and high density needed to reproduce detailed, resonance-free music. And the dark ebony natural wood veneer with metal platter, tonearm, and controls, make a stunning visual addition to your space.

Denon Original Static Balance S-Shape Tonearm
Features a carefully engineered S-Shape curved tonearm with optimized tracking angle at any point of the record. This newly improved Denon® arm features cartridge weight adjustment, anti-skating adjustment (0-3 g), and a newly developed arm height adjustment (0-9 mm). It gives you full flexibility to customize your turntable to your preferred cartridges or custom mat.
Direct-Drive Motor System
Follows a long Denon tradition of direct-drive motor system, with rotation speed that does not fluctuate no matter the selected speed or load. Simple to use, low maintenance, and reaches full speed almost instantly. Denon released its first direct-drive turntable, the DN- 302F, for broadcast studios in 1970.
Space Vector PWM Motor Control
Space vector pulse with modulation (SV-PWM) is a new design for the motor spinning control. SV-PWM is simply an algorithm used to control the PWM (pulse with modulation) module, which basically powers the motor. SV-PWM greatly reduces harmonics in the motor which can cause overheating and torque fluctuations and offers a continuous reliable voltage and frequency output for long periods of listening at any rotation speed or load via continuous feedback of the rotation speed.
Adjustable Insulator Feet
The feet are key to protect the playback from any vibration picked up from the surface the turntable is placed on. But these feet are also adjustable to bring the platter perfectly in balance for the most accurate tracking of the needle in the groove.
SMPS Power Supply
Switch mode power supply (SMPS) greatly benefits turntables by avoiding the use of a linear transformer, avoiding unnecessary vibrations. It allows integration of the power supply into the turntable, getting rid of any external power transformer or power bricks dangling behind the product. It also avoids voltage and frequency fluctuations from variation in the power grid.
*Please Note: Use of a MC cartridge requires an external preamp (sold separately)
*Please Note: This turntable must be connected to an amplifier/receiver and speakers, or a pair of self-powered speakers (sold separately)
