Level meters used on the TD4200 are generic digital peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the TD4200 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby C-type used in the TD4200 provides 20 dB of noise reduction above about 1,000 Hz, fully doubling the amount given by B-type. To further maintain recording accuracy, the TD4200 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the TD4200 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.
