I am finally willing to part with my Denon DP-72L Direct Drive Turntable. This is now an extremely rare table that does not come up for sale very often. I am the second owner of this unit and it has been a favorite of mine over the last 15 years. The pinnacle of Denon's turntables, the DP-72L is not only beautiful, but also a rock solid performer. The unit is in perfect working order.
The turntable and plinth are in excellent condition, with only minor blemishes. The original dustcover is in very good shape with normal light scratches over the years. There is a blemish on the right front side of the lid, and there is a circular blemish/scratch on the underside of the lid over the spindle. (A center weight was put on a record and when the cover was closed it made contact with the lid and put a mark on it)
Included in the sale is the Turntable, Original dust cover, The S shaped tonearm with Denon headshell, and a like new Denon DL-103R Moving Coil cartridge (with the original box) with less than 4 hours on it. Also included are one original 70 gram tonearm weight, and two aftermarket weights of 25, and 100 grams. I did not get the straight tonearm or the rest of the original weights when I purchased the turntable.
While we don't have the original box for this unit, we take packaging and shipping seriously. We spare no expense and use heavy duty boxes, polystyrene, and or instapak when boxing up our gear for shipping.
