denon-usb-turntable.jpgAre you an audiophile who still owns a vast collection of vinyl records? Now you can easily digitize and store your record library onto USB memory simply by inserting your USB memory stick into the USB port on the front, press the Start and Record buttons, and the DP-200USB converts your record into digital files. You don’t even need to have a PC nearby.

When you insert the USB memory stick into a DP-200USB you can enjoy the music files in the high-quality sound that Denon audio products are renowned for. You can also record the music to a USB player that supports MP3 files and enjoy listening to the music directly from the player.

The DP-200USB comes with Trans Music Manager (on CD-ROM) that detects the silent spaces between tracks to automatically split track numbers. You can also use a PC to access the Gracenote® music ID server and obtain track information. It also has a built-in Phono Equalizer which lets you enjoy the music on a mini audio system or radio cassette player that does not have a PHONO jack (the Phono Equalizer can be switched on or off).

When you select the 30cm (12″) or 17cm (7″) record size, the arm automatically moves to the correct position for playing the record, and after it’s finished, the arm automatically returns to its original position. This automatic system makes it easy to play records on the DP-200USB. It has an aluminum diecast turntable for high inertial mass and stable rotation.

It has several modes in audio splitting techniques: Auto MP3 Splitter (detects silent sections between tracks and automatically tags tracks), Manual MP3 Splitter (manually tags tracks as you wish) and Auto Music ID Record (automatically enables to record music information including titles). A fact that might turn away some of the audiophyles is the digitized output MP3 format with quality of  “only” 198 kbits/s.
