Denon DP-45F Very Clean Table - 9.5 of 10 [Expired]


no longer for sale

A friend of mine bought this new in 1985. He was going to use it to transfer 1500 records to reel to reel. After about 20 records he realized just how much work this was going to be and put it on the back burner. A couple of months ago I helped him move his studio and he gave me the table for helping him. It has only had about 40 or 50 records played on it and it shows. I brushed off the cobwebs and dropped it in the system to find that it plays like new. There were a few scratches on the dust cover, but after a 4 stage wet sand and 2 stage buff she shines like a brand new dime. A couple of applications of Plaskolite anti-static, anti-fingerprint plastic polish finished off the dust cover. That's all it needed and all I've done to it. It has been in my second system seeing 4 or 5 sides a week for the past couple of months and played flawlessly. For those of you who may not be very familiar with this table, I'll hit the high points. It features Denon's fully automatic non-contact operation. This means you can enjoy the convenience of fully automatic playback without sonics being affected by the mechanism dragging on the tonearm. It operates with sensors instead of mechanical linkage. The Servo Tracer Arm has an electronic damping mechanism which allows usage of a broad range of cartridges, as well as superior tracking on warped records. I'm constantly picking up gear and I have another piece ready to hit the bench, so this one must go. You will not find a cleaner 1985 pre-owned table out there. You will have to look hard to find a flaw and your friends will think it's new. I downloaded the owners manual and service manual from Vinyl Engine and will email them to you upon purchase. It currently has a Pickering XV-15 installed which sounds pretty good. I know how to ship turntables and will include insurance at the $50 Ground shipping price in the lower 48.
