Great Turntable
This turntable works perfectly with our Edifier bookshelf speakers. The built in equalizer gives us great sound from our old vinyl collection. We also got excellent advice and service at the store.

Excellent Component
Replaced and old TT with this one and paired with my 50-yr old Kenwood KA 4002, I have a wonderful sounding system. Did not even change out the cartridge - it's fine. Highly recommend.

Great Price
I was very happy with my DP 300F until a couple of months ago. After 2 to 3 years the tone arm started dropping the needle about a 1/2" in from the edge of the record. I read the FA questions and there are others that have the same problem. It suggested calling customer service. I called and was on hold for 45 minutes. I couldn't hols any longer.

good value for the money
I have owned my DP300F for 2 years now, and I truly believe that it is still difficult to find another "convenience" type table that will give you the same bang for the buck.
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.

Shaking my head
It is a decent turntable, my major grip is no turn arm lock. How hard was it to make a simple device to secure the tone arm? Denon dropped the ball with that.

Speed issues
Unfortunately, what I thought was a great deal on a turntable wasn't. After just under a year, and not much play the turntable plays records with audible variations in speed. I have had great experience with Denon products before, but this makes me not want to go there again.

Look elsewhere
Purchased this model early in 2016 and have used it regularly since that time. About a year ago the belt drive started malfunctioning periodically (needle placed over start position with no movement. Today the pre-amp gave out. Contacted Denon who told me the warranty was for 2 years (I am at 2.5). Denon apparently makes a product that you will enjoy for months to come. Buyer beware.

Great 'table for cost & performance
Now on my 7th DP-300 F since 2009. Great product for cost & performance at the price point. Downsides have been known issues with RCA cables, original cartridges, & even the built-in phono pre-amp. HOPE ONE HAS A WARRANTY when something goes wrong as Denon recommends replacement only of entire unit ! I have had 2 go out due to short-out in the built-in RCA cable (s), 2 for the built-in phono pre-amp failure, & 1 for a bad cartridge (NOT COVERED under ANY warranty even if new). If a new cartridge is needed Denon original is a good starter, or, like me, I upgraded to a Ortofon 2M Red then a 2M Blue. Although pricier, one gets much improved staging & overall better audio. Overall, I still recommend Denon for its reputation & ease of use. When this 'table needs replacing I will look at Denon again. The DP-400 is coming !

So I decided to purchase this product based on other reviews as well as the auto start auto stop features. The automatic start stop was 95% of why I bought the Denon dp300f. Then it stops working ... It fights you to start a record and it will touch the record and stop even if you try to do it manually it will take 5 minutes of fighting the player to hear your record.

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.

Nice Turntable
I really like the fully automatic feature, and it sounds great. Too bad the stylus broke prematurely, not just on mine, but on my Son's also. I think Denon might have an issue with faulty stylus's on this model. And they don't cover them under warranty.
