This Luxman K-406 is a auto-reverse stereo cassette deck with Dolby B/C and HX-Pro and DBX noise reduction, it was first sold by Luxman in 1985 with a manufacturer suggested retail price of USD $580.

The main features of the Luxman K-406 are: 2 heads, tape type selection and capable of handling normal, chrome and metal tapes.

Tape eject is operated mechanically and the cassette needs to be placed with the side to be played facing forward in the cassette well.

Dolby C-type used in the K-406 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. Dbx Type II found in the K-406 is a simplified version of the Type I noise reduction system. The dbx Type II system was designed to be used with systems with limited bandwidth such as cassette based recorders and also uses a simple 2:1:2 compander to reduce noise.
