The vinyl resurgence is here to stay and as a result, many audio companies are releasing new turntables. This makes choosing the right turntable quick tricky, as there are a ton of good options – especially for those first getting into vinyl.
That being said, if you’re just starting out, the Denon DP-300F is an excellent choice because it’s fully automatic i.e. you can simply press a button to start and stop playback rather than physically move the arm. It also means that when you’ve finished one side of the record, the tonearm automatically lifts and returns itself to resting position, preventing premature needle wear.
While audiophiles won’t be impressed with the $329 (about £245, AU$417) Denon DP-300F, beginners who aren’t looking for the best sound quality will likely find its sound good enough, especially for those who don’t have high quality speakers or headphones in the first place.
