This Revox B710mkII is a stereo cassette deck with double Dolby B and C noise reduction, it was first sold by Revox in 1982 with a list price of USD $2,000.

The main features of the Revox B710mkII are: 3 heads and off-tape monitoring, digital tape counter with 4 digits, manual tape type selection and capable of handling normal, chrome and metal tapes with automatic equalization selection, double direct drive dual-capstan transport.

Typical front loading cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on the center of the deck. Tape loading/unloading is operated motorized and the cassette needs to be placed directly over the head block. Additionally the heads can be easilly accessed for cleaning.

Level meters used on the B710mkII are generic digital peak reading meters.

Dolby C-type used in the B710mkII provides 20 dB of noise reduction above about 1,000 Hz, fully doubling the amount given by B-type. The three-head configuration of the B710mkII requires a Double Dolby system, one for recording and one for playback. 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 B710mkII filters out the pilot signal, and assuring proper Dolby processing of FM stereo programs.

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. All main transport commands can be issued remotely with a wired remote control.
