To further maintain recording accuracy, the AD-F90M incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the AD-F90M can be swiched on to prevent the standard 19kHz FM pilot signal from interfering with the noise reduction system.

To make live recordings this deck has 2 microphone inputs to connect microphones with a jack connector. For undisturbed listening a jack connector for a pair of stereo headphones is supplied. Connection to other audio components for plaback can be achieved by a RCA cable and recording from a source by a RCA cable.
