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!

The dimensions in the specifications are wrong
The "overall dimensions" say this is only 13.8 inches deep, but they are wrong. Even with the lid and hinges removed, it is a full 15.0 inches from the back of the hinge brackets to the front of the start/stop buttons. I measured my cabinet before purchasing and thought I was clear with a 14.5 inch capacity, but no, I had to cut holes in the back of my hi-fi cabinet to accommodate the hinge brackets before it would fit.

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.

Great Performing Table
I have one and find it to be a steady, great sounding turntable. I play mine through a Rotel A12 amp to a pair of Klipsch RP-600M speakers. I like most music genres but listen to classic rock mostly. I did install an older AT90E cartridge with a nude eliptical stylus. I had purchased a new Debut Carbon EVO but the Denon/AT90E combination sounded better to my ears.

Stylus replacement?
I am perfectly happy with my dp-300f. It does what I purchased it for, listening to used vinyl, I am rebuilding a lost collection. I do have a question, how long does the stock stylus last and how do I know if it needs to be replaced. I am loath to spend the price of the turntable on a replacement stylus. Are there decent ones out there for under $100?

Cheaply made. Start/Stop buttons cheap. My old DP-37F was much better, was less money and was direct drive

Great gift for a Vinyl enthusiast
Got this as a birthday gift for my partner. L don’t know much about audio quality, however lots of review time and recommendations from friends lead me to this beauty. Needless to say, I’m happy to have the sleek player out on display in our home, and the sound-play quality is much better than our last turntable.
