Denon DP-200USB Turntable – : Excellent value for money

Get this turntable you won’t be disappointed. Just put this on and l am a happy man my records sound brilliant very good for the price.

Only played a couple of vinyls but pleased with sound quality easy set up and easy to use auto start really important to me since i have a tremor looking forward to listening to my collection again.

This is a straightforward good quality turntable, which is automatic and has a simple start stop operation. It will play singles (45rpm) and lps (33rpm) giving a good authentic sound via its quality stylus. It also has the ability to record the playing record onto a usb drive, and name the record/track (editing through a computer) via the included disc. The turntable has a pair of audio leads (attached) and a main lead with a two pin plug ( there is a three pin adapter plug supplied for direct mains connection) that can be connected directly to compatible denon amps.

Great way to archive your precious vinyl collection. I bought this denon turntable as i already have a denon compact hifi system so it seemed a logical choice. Also other usb decks i looked at didn’t have the option of using a flash drive, instead they needed a direct connection to a pc. Clear instructions are provided and i was up and running in around 15 minutes. Sound quality seems very good, nice to hear albums for the first time in something like 20 yearshowever, the first thing i noticed was that the start of my recordings were being cut off. I had read other reviews that mentioned this but it was only after reading the instructions that i realised i had to wait until the recording light was actually flashing before recording started. In my case this took around 20 seconds after pushing the record button but apparently can vary depending on the flash drive used. The software supplied took a while to get used to but seems to work well. As others have said there is no on/off indication which there should be, hence the 4* rating. All in all i think for £130 this is a decent turntable that does the job i wanted it to and does it well.

Good turntable – reasonable cost. I wanted a new turntable so i could re-discover some of the pleasures of my old record collection. I was a bit surprised at the cost of turntables these days but, i suppose with inflation factored in maybe they aren’t so expensive. Anyway, firstly i must comment on a great service from superfi. It was free delivery but they definitely provided a first class service in this respect – i highly recommend them. The turntable arrived very well packaged and just needed to be unpacked and assembled (fixing the belt to the platter and then putting on the mat – which was all very easy to do). I connected it to my denon m38 cd receiver and it all worked perfectly. It is very easy to use and i am pleased with the sound from the set up. So far i have only used it to play records and have not tried to use the usb recording facility, though it is something i do intend to try, but if i’m not happy with it at least i know i can directly connect this turntable direct to my pc. The only negative point i have come across is that it would have been better had there been some indication of when the unit was on, as there are no lights to show this, and i have left it on overnight by accident already.

Denon DP-200USB Turntable – Silver : Keep your vinyl options open. . I decided to add a usb turntable to my denon system so i can transfer my vinyl to digital. Very well made and affordable. Its easy to use and well laid out. Phono connection to your hifi(no pre-amp). Disc size and 33/45 switches on the top surface. Power, record, start, stop and usb socket on the front. You can’t record directly to your computer but its a easy two step process.

Good player, good value, good sound pleased with my choice. . I like the complete auto function, the old one this replaced had auto reject at the end put you had to lower the stylus. This means less like to scratch the disc. I would say good value for money. My lack of 5 stars really is only because nothing is perfect and it does not have a catch to secure the arm when not in sue which is useful when dusting etc and can knock the player.

Arrived in perfect condition. Did everything i hoped it would. Very happy with the turntable.

Sound and build quality are excellent. Unfortunately denon continue to grapple with usability questions:-1. Two separate controls provided for disk speed and size, the latter should be determined automatically. Technics could do this, why can’t you. Manual track queuing is very tricky. When unit power switch is left on and electric turned off at the plug, the turntable will start and stylus moves to play a non-existent record when electric turned on at the plug. To finish on a positive, denon now supply a printed user manual.

Why wait to have this much fun?. My lp collection, 40 year-old philips 202 3-speed turntable, and aiwa tape deck, were boxed away for 7 years due to house renovations (don’t ask), and when resurrected recently, the drives had deteriorated so much they were absolutely useless. Happy coincidence, my family bought me the denon dp-200 usb turntable for my 80th birthday. Playing my lps on it through my also 40 year-old armstrong 526 stereo amplifer, and wharfedale dovedale 3 speakers in my study, i have to put on record that i am delighted with the performance. I must try it some day with my denon d-77 system and mission speakers in the lounge where i play my cd and tape collection, but i’m having too much fun where it is at the moment. I have no doubt that it will perform equally well. It has reminded me of the sugden turntable of my youth and has finally persuaded me that vinyl lps are superior to cds. Listening to the carlos kleiber recording of beethoven’s seventh symphony, which i have in both formats, there is no doubt in my mind which is superior in sound quality. Lps certainly have a more pleasant quality that i have been missing these seven years, against the hardness of cds. I haven’t attempted to used the recording feature of the turntable.

Not expensive with very good functions, sounds great. User friendly, not expensive with very good functions, sounds great.

Compact and very easy to use. Compact and very easy to use. A switch accessed via holes in the turntable gives the option of usb recording (mp3 format) or phono playback through a separate amplifier (phono leads provided). I have had no problems in copying old albums so far. Track splitting works well using the software supplied. To copy you have to use a usb memory stick in the socket on the front of the unit – the turntable unit can’t be connected directly to the computer for copying via the usb socket. Good value for money in my opinion.

Produces a great sound, like it. Looking for a new turntable deck to give my old vinyl records an airing and also having the ability to convert them to digital without having to spend a fortune, the denon dp-200usb seemed to fit the bill. What especially attracted me to the denon was that for converting the music, you didn’t need a long trailing usb lead from turntable to laptop, you can just plug in a usb memory stick. Ordering by next day delivery, it arrived sunday morning, less than 18 hours after placing my order. Once unpacked it was easy to set up, only taking a few minutes. The turntable platter just needs to be mounted and the drive belt hooked over the driving roller capstan, the rubber mat placed on top, phono leads plugged into your amp, deck plugged into the mains, and away you go. Since getting the cd bug many years ago and not having listened to vinyl for the same many years (at least 20), i was very impressed with the amazing sound that came out of my speakers, i’d forgotten just how good vinyl sounded. I’ve not converted a whole album as yet, only a single album track to test its ability to copy to a stick, which is very simple. I don’t think copying a whole album would be too much hassle. On reading other’s comments about editing converted mp3s, i’ve downloaded audacity software rather than use the supplied trans music manager (not sure this works with windows 10 anyway).

Ideal mid price turntable for music fans. I’m a music fan rather than a hi-fi fan. Looking at new record players i noticed many seemed too cheap and nasty (those all-in-one retro machines) or too much about the hi-fi (i. Manual cueing, pre-amps etc. ) i wanted something of decent quality but practical and convenient, and of course at a sensible price. This one fits the bill:* 1 button start and stop, soft and precise cueing action. * line out to connect into normal audio/video input of any music system. * usb recording to a usb stick. The software to edit and tag the mp3 files takes a few minutes to master, although ultimately it’s pretty straightforward. * brushed aluminium (imitation) to match my existing medium-fi. Plastic but nice build quality, belt-driven aluminium platter etc. * not too expensive, not too cheap, £150 is spot oni’m very happy with this purchase.

    Good looking but lightweight. . It’s a good turntable but a bit lightweight. The buttons are not firm enough and feel a bit cheap and flimsy. It looks good though and works fine.
