Denon DP-A100 Direct-Drive Turntable

Denon Electronics announced the DP-A100 Direct-Drive Turntable (SRP: $2,499), as one of seven new products in its limited special-edition Denon Anniversary Product Collection.

The Denon DP-A100 turntable features the same high-performance Denon direct-drive turntable technology that has delivered high-precision rotation for 40 years. Equipped with the DL-A100 cartridge, the DP-A100 is capable of masterfully reproducing the energy and beauty of analog records.

All A100 products will be available beginning in November 2010 at select Special Anniversary Denon dealers.

A Unique History
The history of Denon turntables began in 1910 with the production of Japan's first gramophone and peaked in 1939 when Denon developed a disc recorder for NHK radio station. In 1970, Denon developed its own high-torque AC motor for low speeds where speed was controlled by highly precise detection of magnetic pulses recorded around the perimeter of the platter. Denon incorporated this leading-edge servo technology in its development of the direct-drive turntable, whose high performance and reliability represented a clear break from conventional idler and belt drive products.

In 1961, Denon jointly produced the now iconic DL-103 cartridge with NHK for use at FM stations. The DL-103 was able to play stereo LP records with high fidelity and reliability (providing easy handling and stability). The basic design of this model continues to achieve first-rate performance and plays an active part in today's world of Hi-Fi audio enthusiasts. Reflecting this engineering expertise and innovation, the new DL-A100 cartridge represents the standard model that has been in production for a little less than a half century – now reborn with the latest tuning for pure enjoyment.

“The launch of our A100 collection is a tribute to Denon's century long mission: to faithfully reproduce sound and images exactly as the original artist intended, with products that reflect 100 years of passion, artistry and technology. In 100 years of significant and innovative 'firsts,' Denon has continuously brought the best of technologies to discriminating customers around the world, always providing them with a superior home entertainment experience. With these new Anniversary Collection products, we are giving people who appreciate what Denon is all about a unique opportunity to share in our passion and enjoy true high-performance home entertainment at the same time.”
