Welcome to the forum.
The answer is yes as it has an analogue AUX input, however you would need a phono pre amplifier to go with that turntable or you could buy a turntable with one built into it.

I have no personal experience of the Denon system you are considering, but from the reviews it seems to be an excellent choice. I just wonder why you would WANT to add a turntable?

Perhaps you have a treasured collection of LPs? Even so, I would suggest that you consider spending the money on replacing the LPs with CDs, many of which have been re-mastered, and sound very much better than the LPs ever did.

It‘s an interesting opinion but not everyone would say a remastered CD is better than an original LP in all cases. For example, a lot of modern remasters have been made to cater for the modern taste for loudness, with the dynamic range squashed.

I think replacing a cherished LP collection with CDs could be a minefield!
