Headshell for Denon DP-45F Turntable

I am trying to bring back to life a Denon DP-45F turntable that has been laying up for many years. Somewhere in its travels the headshell has been broken right where the headshell connects to the tonearm. I have tried to find a replacement headshell ( PCL-30) but have been spectacuraly unsuccessful. Could any one help in finding a replacement, old or new would be fine. Failing that could someone please recommend a universal headshell solution as close to the original as practical? Please contact me at cwedemeyer@hutch-hayes.com. Any help would be geatly appreciated. Thanks - Carl Wedemeyer

The PCL-30 does not look like a standard headshell. I doubt the above answer is correct.

Any Half-Inch / Standard mount headshell will work on this turntable. Luckily for you, these are very common.

All the answers above are WRONG! The Denon PCL-30/50 are indeed hard to find for less than a couple of hundred bucks (from Japan) but there are non-name brand that will also fit. Audio Empire has a carbon fiber one that will work, as does one from "Freds-sound-of-music". These TT's CANNOT use the universal 1/2" headshells as stated above, it will not fit the arm on your Denon TT. I know I have the DP-52F and was also in your shoes no long ago.

How do i find a turntable cartridge technics headshell SL-BD22


The SL-BD22 turntable's tonearm does not have a headshell. It takes a P-mount (otherwise known as a T4P) cartridge which plugs directly into the end of the arm.

I need a cartridge for my Denon DP-DJ151 Turntable, and I can't find one anywhere. Is there a universal I could get? Thank you!


You can fit any cartridge as long as it will fit the headshell. Just look around for something like the Denon cartridge mount.

I just received a denon dp-45f. i am completely new to the vinyl world and honestly have no idea what i can plug it into. is it at all possible to plug it into a TV to use those speakers, or will i need to...


Yes you will need to purchase a stereo that has a phono input. If not you will have to buy an amplifier for the record player. Some newer Yamahas have a phono input. Hope this helps.

Platter turns slow


This turntable design has a direct drive system instead of belt drive (two types). If this unit has been in storage for some time, it has most likely been at hot or cold tempuratures - not good for any electronic/mechanical system. 
My guess is that the direct drive motor needs to be rebuilt - internal friction is probably keeping it from operating at proper speed. Best to consult with a repair shop that can handle direct drive turntables - several on the internet, if you cannot find one locally.

BTW: You can find a manual for this at : http://www.vinylengine.com/library/denon/dp-45f.shtml

Best regards,
Andre
