Level meters used on the DRM-700A are generic digital peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the DRM-700A let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby C-type used in the DRM-700A 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 DRM-700A requires a Double Dolby system, one for recording and one for playback.

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.
