This Technics RS-BX606 is a stereo cassette deck with double Dolby B/C and HX-Pro noise reduction, it was first sold by Technics in 1991 with a list price of USD $300 and discontinued 2 years later in 1993.

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 RS-BX606 are generic digital peak reading meters. Full-logic transport controls used on the RS-BX606 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby C-type used in the RS-BX606 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 three-head configuration of the RS-BX606 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 RS-BX606 filters out the pilot signal, and assuring proper Dolby processing of FM stereo programs.

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.
