This Yamaha KX-R700 is a auto-reverse stereo cassette deck with Dolby B/C and HX-Pro and DBX noise reduction, it was first sold by Yamaha in 1988 with a manufacturer suggested retail price of USD $579 and discontinued 2 years later in 1990.

Typical front loading cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on the left side of the deck.

Level meters used on the KX-R700 are generic digital peak reading meters.

Dolby C-type used in the KX-R700 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. Dbx Type II found in the KX-R700 is a simplified version of the Type I noise reduction system. The dbx Type II system was designed to be used with systems with limited bandwidth such as cassette based recorders and also uses a simple 2:1:2 compander to reduce noise.
