Denon DP-80


In order to improve the sound quality and the performance of the record player, it is essential to effectively cut off the acoustic feedback, one of the factors in deterioration of the sound quality of the record player.

Based on that theory, the DP-80 is created through the combination of a double construction platter and outer-rotor type 3-phase AC servo motor.

It clearly proves to you that the sound can be so different depending on the turntable.
