      Answer

      It does come with a cartridge but its not a good one. The one supplied has a Conical Stylus which is the worst for sound reproduction as it rides high in the groves, it also only puts out 2.5 mv of power which is not much. I added a Grado Green cartridge with an Elliptical stylus and it puts out 5 mv of power, the best part of this turntable is the fact that you can replace the cartridge with the best one you can afford as this is what produces the sound and you sound system is only as good as your weakest link

        Answer

        Yes - The unit come with a phone pre-amp that increase the line-out current to be comparable with POWERED speakers such as the Behringer MS20 or MS40 (recommend and own 3 sets) or units by other manufactures. These speakers have their own amplifier built-in and require AC-Power and are called "monitor speakers". Just be sure the turntable pre-amp is ON. On the Denon DL-300F the pre-amp is called the "Equalizer" and the switch to it can be found under the turntable patter and is accessible by a window in the patter. See #13 in the attached diagram. Please note that all turn-tables are sensitive to vibration and I would not place any speakers near the turntable as vibration from the speakers will find the resonance of the turntable and feed-back up the stylus needle. Enjoy the music.

      I have a Bose radio/CD player; can I connect the Denon as an auxiliary component to the Bose (or will the Bose serve as a receiver and/or pre-amp)?   (5 Answers)

        Answer

        You can do it both ways. The Denon has a switch under the platter that allows you to hook it to a preamp or directly to the aux or phono connections on your device. Note that it is an AV connection only and does not support other connections.
