Denon DP-400 Overview

Denon’s latest turntable, the DP-400, doesn’t disappoint. Designed for audiophile reproduction, and outfitted with pre-installed cartridge and phono preamplifier, the DP-400 connects with any equipment you may own, from receiver or integrated amp to stand-alone powered speakers. The out-of-the-box experience is exceptional – only minutes from unpacking to playing. Sonic fidelity is paramount – the S-shaped tonearm reduces horizontal tracking error, the weighted platter is belt-driven for lower vibrations, and an auto-sensor adjusts for speed fluctuations for locked-in accuracy.

Connect to anything

The DP-400’s built-in, switchable phono preamplifier (made to match the included Denon moving-magnet cartridge, but you can easily swap in an advanced moving-coil model) adds versatility. Connect easily to today’s varied equipment, whether line- or phono-level input, receiver, or amplifier, compact system or stand-alone powered speakers.

Oh, what curves

Geometrically speaking, the ideal tonearm would be tangential to each record groove, lead-in to lead-out. With a single pivot-point tonearm, that’s not physically possible. (There have been attempts at linear-tracking turntables over the years, most introducing their own mechanical issues.) The DP-400’s precision-engineered S-shaped tonearm minimizes tracking-angle error, all the way across the record.

A dedication to fidelity

The Denon DP-400, like every item in the legendary manufacturer’s line, is engineered for audiophile ears. The weighted platter is belt-driven to reduce the motor vibrations known as rumble. An auto-sensor monitors the speed of the platter and corrects for variations for locked-on accuracy. And the sleek and glossy plinth minimizes external vibrations while blending with any home system and décor.

Cool and convenient

Many turntables today are exercises in mechanical minimalism – which is fine until you fall asleep during the last track of the side and wake 20 minutes later to that annoying scratch/thump/scratch of the needle caught in the lead-out groove. The DP-400 is kind enough to you and your stylus to automatically lift off the record and stop spinning when the side ends.

Cover me

if you admire album artwork, you’ll love the unique sculpted plexiglass dust cover with its own stand, designed to display record jackets. (Or leave it on as the record plays; it’s also designed to minimize transmission of external vibrations.)

Great Sound, Great Look
I Picked up this turntable a few months ago, and I love it. The setup of the tone arm was pretty easy to follow. I Think it sounds great and the build is quality. I also like the unique design of the Turntable cover and stand that also holds your record sleave.
