Customer Reviews for Denon DP-300F Fully Automatic Analog Turntable
If you do not want or need a built-in pre-amp and automatic cueing and speed control, then this table does not necessarily make sense - although you can switch off the preamp and do not have to use the automatic functions. I really only need an automatic stop because I move around a lot or fall asleep to music, and do not want for the needle spin in the run-out groove for extended periods of time.
The design is nice and simple, the sound quality is good - but as many said, the first thing to upgrade (immediately) is the stock cartridge - the 2m Red or the DL110 work really well for this table. I will however say that the tonearm height can be challenging for some cartridges, so please check.
I have not noticed any speed variances or issues with tracking/cueing as others have reported. Maybe I was just lucky.
Everything else that was said is true - there could be more/better connectors, less plastic would have been nice, etc...
But to be honest, my ears are not sophisticated enough to really hear major improvements that would warrant spending 100s or 1000s of extra dollars, I rather put that into my vinyl collection.
For full disclosure, I got a deal back then that included the 2m RED for $350, which made it a no-brainer and I cannot complain.
My alternative choice would have been Fluance RT85 which is around $500 but includes the 2m Blue, has automatic stop but no pre-amp.
Just buy something else the main features of this turn table will end up malfunctioning and you'll be angry every time you try to start a record.
This would be a great turntable if it had a tonearm latch, RCA output jacks (not a lousy built in wire), a grounding wire, and better shielding. Nix the bad cartridge it comes with, and perhaps the built in preamp, and put the cost of those into these needed improvements.
