The Aiwa XK-7000 is a stereo cassette deck with double Dolby B/C and HX-Pro noise reduction, it was introduced by Aiwa in 1991.

The main features of the Aiwa XK-7000 are: 3 heads and off-tape monitoring, electronic linear tape counter with 4 digits, automatic tape type selection with support for normal, chrome and metal tapes, belt driven dual-capstan transport.

Typical front loading cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on the left side of the deck. Tape loading/unloading is operated motorized and the cassette needs to be placed with the side to be played facing forward in the cassette well.

Level meters used on the XK-7000 are generic digital peak reading meters with peak hold for easy adjustment of optimum recording level. Full-logic transport controls used on the XK-7000 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

To ensure the best response from the wide variety of tapes available adjustment of, bias and sensitivity, to optimum levels can be performed prior to recording.

Dolby C-type used in the XK-7000 provides 20 dB of noise reduction above about 1,000 Hz, fully doubling the amount given by B-type. The Dolby HX PRO system provides precise bias control during recording to reduce distortion and improve linearity in the high-frequency range, the result is recorded sound that is highly faithful to the original. The three-head configuration of the XK-7000 requires a Double Dolby system, one for recording and one for playback. To further maintain recording accuracy, the XK-7000 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the XK-7000 can be swiched on to prevent the standard 19kHz FM pilot signal from interfering with the noise reduction system.

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.
