Level meters used on the DD-VR77mkII are generic digital peak reading meters with multi-color indication to provide visual saturation level of tape. Full-logic transport controls used on the DD-VR77mkII let it respond to the slightest finger contact for fast and effortless transport function selection.

Dolby C-type used in the DD-VR77mkII provides 20 dB of noise reduction above about 1,000 Hz, fully doubling the amount given by B-type. To further maintain recording accuracy, the DD-VR77mkII incorporates a switchable multiplex filter. When you record FM stereo broadcasts, the MPX filter of the DD-VR77mkII can be swiched on to prevent the standard 19kHz FM pilot signal from interfering with the noise reduction system.

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.
