Level meters used on the HiFi 8025 are generic digital peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the HiFi 8025 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the HiFi 8025 by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. The 19kHz multiplex pilot slgnal present in FM stereo broadcasts can cause false triggering of the noise reduction system. The switchable MPX filter of the HiFi 8025 filters out the pilot signal, and assuring proper Dolby processing of FM stereo programs.
