I was afraid of such words regarding Denon DP-300F. My listening preference is classics, jazz, acoustic guitar, orchestral music, etc. Of course I'll use a good external preamp if I buy this turntable.
In an another thread ten months ago regarding built-in vs. external preamps, you also mentioned Denon DP-300F and its flutter and wow in acoustic based music, like piano.
Please, do you think that flutter and wow in Denon DP-300F can be suppressed by installing three things: few O-rings along its tonearm, a cork platter, and rubberized legs or a rubber-foam mat under the turntable ?
If wow and flutter can't be suppressed, I will consider Thorens TD190-2, maybe even TD240-2 (which is a bit pricey for the beginning).
Automatic is definitely important. Electronic stores in my city also sell manual TTs: Music Hall, Edwards Audio, Pro-Ject Debut and Essential II, so my last option will be one of those manual turntables, with separately bought a tonearm lifter.
But that will really be the last option, if for acoustic based music previously mentioned automatic turntables and simple upgrades in rubberized legs, O-rings on a tonearm, and a cork slip-mat aren't solution.
Please advise. Thank you.
