Having had to conduct a comparison Denon DP-300F vs Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC, I loved the idea that Denon was fully automatic because the convenience factor is very helpful. It comes with everything you need to get going without needing to go out and replace anything immediately. At the same time Debut Carbon versus Denon turned out to be well built, sturdy and with a very good quality cartridge already installed (Ortofon 2M Red), it really doesn't need any upgrading in my opinion. But let's see other aspects to compare these TTs in full.
DC doesn't have a preamp while his opponent's got it at 2.5 mV nominal at 1 kHz level. Playing at the same speed (33.3, 45 RPM) Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC and Denon DP-300F both own moving magnet (MM) type of cartridge.
The sound quality is phenomenal for Pro-Ject's price point. Granted, this was an upgrade from a 100$ multifunctional turntable, but the resolution, depth, and clarity was such an astounding improvement, I was completely surprised by just how much better than DP-300F this thing sounds.
DC's build quality and the materials are a notch above the orbit. This model's predecessor, the AC motor version, suffered from many complaints of an audible motor hum when the unit wasn't playing a record. I can tell you there is no hum whatsoever. Also, superior build quality with Denon expert re-engineering makes this table an obvious winner among turntables of its price range and a must-have for your vintage vinyl collection in any home entertainment system.
The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC is better turntable in this comparison. Check Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC price
