2-Speed Direct-Drive Manual Turntable
The Denon DP-500M uses a quartz lock servo that controls platter rotation via intervals of optical pulses passing through a slit.
This control system ensures accurate rotation with no deviation from the centre.
The development of a high torque motor has boosted start up speed to 0.3 second, providing quick operation and stable rotation.
The DP-500M's tonearm has been designed for optimum sound quality through the use of die cast parts throughout to boost rigidity and carefully placed deadening material to minimise vibration.
This universal type tonearm accommodates a wide variety of cartridges.
