The Denon DR-70 is a stereo cassette deck with double Dolby B/C and HX-Pro noise reduction, it was introduced by Denon in 1989.

The main features of the Denon DR-70 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 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 DR-70 are generic digital peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the DR-70 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby C-type used in the DR-70 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 DR-70 requires a Double Dolby system, one for recording and one for playback. To further maintain recording accuracy, the DR-70 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the DR-70 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. All main transport commands can be issued remotely with a wired remote control.
