Level meters used on the TD-1400 are analog needle VU reading meters with peak indicator for easy adjustment of optimum recording level. Full-logic transport controls used on the TD-1400 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby C-type used in the TD-1400 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. To further maintain recording accuracy, the TD-1400 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the TD-1400 can be swiched on to prevent the standard 19kHz FM pilot signal from interfering with the noise reduction system.

Connection to other audio components for plaback can be achieved by a RCA cable and recording from a source by a RCA cable. All main transport commands can be issued remotely with a wireless remote control.
