The manual bias adjustment control lets you fine-tune your recordings to get the best possible sound from whatever type of blank tape you're using.

Denon has also loaded this deck with convenience features, like auto-reverse playback and recording. Its handy music search system lets you easily skip forward or backward to the beginnings of tracks. And if you hear something on a tape that you want to return to later, just press the "Memory" button — the DRM-555 will remember this spot on the tape and let you rewind or fast-forward back to it with the press of a button. You also get easy CD synchro recording when you use this deck with compatible Denon CD players.
