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

Level meters used on the CS-M40R are generic digital peak reading meters. Mechanical transport controls for reliable CS-M40R transport function selection.

The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the CS-M40R by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. To further maintain recording accuracy, the CS-M40R incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the CS-M40R 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.
