Level meters used on the DD-7 are generic digital peak reading meters with multi-color indication to provide visual saturation level of tape and peak hold for easy adjustment of optimum recording level. Full-logic transport controls used on the DD-7 let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Super ANRS developed by JVC and used in the DD-7 applies compression in recording and expansion in playback to improve dynamic range at high frequencies. Also Super ANRS is a highly effective noise reduction system that reduces tape hiss by boosting the signal-to-noise ratio as much as 10db over 5000Hz. The Dolby-B system reduces tape hiss on tapes recorded on the DD-7 by as much as 10 dB at the highest frequencies.

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.
