With its pre-mounted MM cartridge, built-in phono preamp and carefully engineered tonearm with auto lift and playback stop, the Denon DP-400 brings out the details in your cherished albums. 


Specially Engineered S-Shaped Tonearm  

Features a carefully engineered S-Shape curved tonearm with optimized tracking angle at any point of the record, auto-lift at records end and playback stop. When the vinyl reaches the end of playback, the tonearm auto-lifts 10 seconds prior to the groove end, preserving the excellent condition of your album and the cartridge.  S-Shape curved tonearm design also reduces harmonic distortion, ensuring a crystal clear sonic signal every time you listen. 


Solid Construction 

Strong build construction offers both the strength and high-density needed to reproduce detailed, resonance-free music. Thick cabinet walls and a weighted platter provide the optimal surface for your vinyl collection, reducing external vibration. Pair DP-400 with the rest of the Denon Design Series for a durable, high-resolution system. 


Speed Selector 

Supports playback at 33 1/3 rpm, 45 rpm and 78 rpm. Easily play your entire vinyl collection and enjoy its full breadth - even your cherished, vintage 78's. 


Easy Setup and Operation 

Takes minutes to unbox and quickly operate for novice and seasoned vinyl fans. Plug DP-400 into your favorite amplifier or system, including the Denon Design Series, and immediately begin reconnecting with your vinyl collection - it’s that easy. 


Exclusive, Removable Dual-purpose Dust Cover 

Removable dust cover features a modern design, elevating the overall aesthetic of DP-400 while eliminating vibration issues that affect music quality associated with attached covers. Doubling as a display stand for your album cover, place the dust cover upright on the included base and show it proudly to friends. 


Phono Equalizer

Built-in phono equalizer creates an open, enveloping sound stage that enlivens your vinyl collection while staying true to the original recording. Connect it directly to a mini component or integrated amp that lacks a phono terminal for seamless use. 


Cartridge Options 

Includes an MM cartridge for more precise listening and added musical detail. As a producer of the longest-selling cartridge in market, enjoy the Denon DP-400 turntable with confidence. If you prefer listening via an MC cartridge, easily swap out the existing MM cartridge to fit your audio preferences. Enjoy iconic Denon sound quality however you choose to listen. 


Weighted, Belt-driven Platter with Rotation Control 

Integrated rotation control accurately controls the platter, preventing unwanted speed fluctuations during playback — enjoy audio reproduction exactly as the artist intended.


Compact Size

At just 16.3" wide, DP-400 is constructed to fit seamlessly into your existing Hi-Fi system. Though compact in size, it still delivers the powerful, detailed sound you expect from Denon. 


Sophisticated Design Series Aesthetic

Blending seamlessly with the popular Denon Design Series, DP-400 features a sophisticated form factor and solid construction. Durable aluminum materials offer a modern aesthetic. Pair it with the rest of the Denon Design Series to complete your elegantly designed Hi-Fi system.
