Summary: I was in the market for a turntable and wanted a fully automatic as my tremors would prove disastrous for both a tone arm and record if I had to play them manually. This Denon is a smooth, quiet, nice looking turntable and is easy to set up and I even installed a cartridge upgrade myself with a Sumiko Pearl which I ordered with the turntable from here. It's a great performer and the price is very reasonable...
Summary: I purchased this turntable to go with the Denon D-M39s ( Mini Shelf System) And the whole setup is just perfect. This is a quality and well built Turntable I am sure I will get many years of use from it.
Summary: Great buy overall. My only suggestion would be that they recommend bundling this with an anti static gun (or other solution). I was a newbie to vinyl players and wasn't aware that the pops and clicks could be somewhat taken away with some anti-static solution. I would recommend selling these at cost for add-on purchases. This way first time LP player customers would be ready to go with this out of the box.
Excerpt: This is the turntable I have been looking for. It has automatic start and return and has a built in EQ that allows you to run this table with a modern receiver that does not have a phono input. My receivers have phono inputs so I don't know how well this feature works. The only complaint is that the output of this table is not as high as my previous Technics table. This may simply be a matter of the stock cartridge which is serviceable, but pretty low end.
Excerpt: Sounds good right out of the box. Didn't need an aftermarket needle, the included needle sounded great. Automatic feature works flawlessly. Don't spend a ton of money buying a turntable, this is all you need for the home.
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile
Summary: Fine turntable, good sound and matches well with my current system. It's only weakness lies with the cartridge that comes with the package and the fact that the cables are hard wired and I can't use cables of my own choice.
