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 Plus D64 are generic digital peak reading meters with multi-color indication to provide visual saturation level of tape. Full-logic transport controls used on the Plus D64 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 Plus D64 by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies. To further maintain recording accuracy, the Plus D64 incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the Plus D64 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.
