The Yamaha KX-W900 is a auto-reverse stereo double cassette deck with Dolby B/C and HX-Pro noise reduction, it was introduced by Yamaha in 1988 with a recommended retail price of USD $766 and discontinued 3 years later in 1991.

The main features of the Yamaha KX-W900 are: 2 heads, electronic tape counter with 4 digits, automatic tape type selection with support for normal, chrome and metal tapes, belt driven auto reverse transport.

Typical front loading double cassette deck with the cassette compartiment located on both sides 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 KX-W900 are generic digital peak reading meters.

Dolby C-type used in the KX-W900 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.

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 wireless remote control.
