The Nikko ND-700II is a stereo cassette deck with Dolby B and DBX noise reduction, it was introduced by Nikko in 1981 with a list price of USD $300 and discontinued 3 years later in 1984.

The main features of the Nikko ND-700II are: 2 heads, analog 3 digit tape counter, manual tape type selection with support for normal, chrome and metal tapes, belt driven single-capstan transport.

Typical front loading cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on the left side of the deck. Tape eject is operated mechanically and the cassette needs to be placed with the side to be played facing forward in the cassette well.

Level meters used on the ND-700II are generic digital peak reading meters. Soft-touch controls for fast and easy transport function selection of the ND-700II.

The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the ND-700II by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. Dbx Type II found in the ND-700II 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. To further maintain recording accuracy, the ND-700II incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the ND-700II can be swiched on to prevent the standard 19kHz FM pilot signal from interfering with the noise reduction system.

To make live recordings this deck has 2 microphone inputs to connect microphones with a jack connector. 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.
