The Harman Kardon TD470 is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B/C/S and HX-Pro noise reduction, it was introduced by Harman Kardon in 1994 with a manufacturer suggested retail price of USD $630.

The main features of the Harman Kardon TD470 are: 3 heads and no off-tape monitoring to save production cost, electronic 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 loading/unloading is operated motorized and the cassette needs to be placed horizontally in the drawer.

Level meters used on the TD470 are generic digital peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the TD470 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby S-type noise reduction gives cleaner transient response, provides lower noise levels, both at low and high frequencies, and allows higher signal levels to be recorded safely on the TD470. Dolby S-type noise reduction provides 24 dB of high frequency noise reduction plus an additional 10 dB of low frequency noise reduction. 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 TD470 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the TD470 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.
