Level meters used on the 6155 are generic digital peak reading meters. Soft-touch controls for fast and easy transport function selection of the 6155.

Dolby C-type used in the 6155 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. 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 6155 filters out the pilot signal, and assuring proper Dolby processing of FM stereo programs.

Connection to other audio components for plaback can be achieved by a RCA cable and recording from a source by a RCA cable.
