My LP collection, 40 year-old Philips 202 3-speed turntable, and Aiwa tape deck, were boxed away for 7 years due to house renovations (don't ask), and when resurrected recently, the drives had deteriorated so much they were absolutely useless. Happy coincidence, my family bought me the Denon DP-200 USB turntable for my 80th birthday. Playing my LPs on it through my also 40 year-old Armstrong 526 Stereo Amplifer, and Wharfedale Dovedale 3 speakers in my study, I have to put on record that I am delighted with the performance. I must try it some day with my Denon D-77 system and Mission speakers in the lounge where I play my CD and tape collection, but I'm having too much fun where it is at the moment. I have no doubt that it will perform equally well. It has reminded me of the Sugden turntable of my youth and has finally persuaded me that vinyl LPs are superior to CDs. Listening to the Carlos Kleiber recording of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, which I have in both formats, there is no doubt in my mind which is superior in sound quality. LPs certainly have a more pleasant quality that I have been missing these seven years, against the hardness of CDs.
I haven't attempted to used the recording feature of the turntable. My younger family thought it would be a good idea to have it available, but why use MP3 when you've got Dovedale 3s? I have no doubt it will perform equally well. As an old Hi-Fi man, in every sense of the word, in my experience Denon equipment is like that! I can thoroughly recommend this turntable to any of my generation who suddenly find themselves short of a turntable to play their LP collection. Or even if not. This one is worth every penny! Treat yourself. You don't have to wait until you are 80 to have this much fun!
