The Harman Kardon TD420 is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B/C and HX-Pro noise reduction, it was introduced by Harman Kardon in 1995 with a recommended retail price of USD $395.

Level meters used on the TD420 are generic digital peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the TD420 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby C-type used in the TD420 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 TD420 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the TD420 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.
