Denon DP-15F


The Denon DP-15F is a direct drive turntable with the following features:

Microprocessor controlled, contact-less servo tonearm - this unique system ensures safe, easy to use automatic operation with no deterioration in sound quality.

Dynamic servo tracer - low frequency resonance caused by cartridge compliance and effective tonearm mass is electronically damped both horizontally and vertically to effectively suppress crosstalk and intermodulation distortion.

Low mass straight tonearm - having an outstanding tracing ability, this arm maximises the performance of the high compliance cartridge to the full extent.

Denon quartz - the ultimate in rotational accuracy is realised by the combination of a magnetic pulse detector and a quartz lock.

Newly developed cartridge - the low mass DL-65 with an elliptically shaped stylus minimises tracing distortion and contributes to the clarity of the reproduced sound.
