Denon unveils its first flagship premium direct-drive turntable

The global turntables market growth is anticipated to rise considerably over the past few years. Vinyl gives superior high-quality sound better than digital files and CDs that provide compressed audio.

Turntables produce a sound to the most significant degree possible, similar to the original recording. The music and vocals are closer to how artists sound live, with a lossless format.

A Japanese electronics company that deals with audio equipment, Denon has released its first flagship premium direct-drive turntable, DP-300NE.

Denon DP-300NE features a high-density wood cabinet finished in a dark, ebony natural wood veneer, a metal platter, and a tonearm. Controls are seated on adjustable insulator feet, providing the strength to reproduce detailed, resonance-free music. 

The Denon DP-300NE turntable is also integrated with an S-shaped tonearm that suppresses vibration and optimizes tracking angle at any recorded point. 

Additionally, the new turntable has a 16-pole, 12-coil, brushless direct-drive motor that supports 33, 45, and 78 rpm playback speeds. Moreover, it uses a PWM Vector control system. At the same time, the control board uses an algorithm to reduce torque variations or vibrations during play.

The Denon’s new turntable measures 500mm wide, 394mm deep, and 185mm high and weighs 18.5 kg. The S-shaped tonearm of the turntable is 244mm long and 9mm of high adjustment range for a precise vertical tracking angle, along with counterweight and anti-skating tweaking. Also, the length of the overhang is 14mm.

The Denon DP-300NE turntable is a premium direct-drive Hi-Fi turntable with high-accuracy playback, solid construction, and a beautiful design that will look stunning in your space.

The DP-3000NE turntable is priced at $2,499 on their official website and is expected to be available from next month. The new turntable will have a removable dust cover, platter mat, RCA cable with ground, and various setup tools.
