We report on the results obtained from the study of the 32S +74Ge deep inelastic reaction at incident energy E = 320 MeV. High-energy $\gamma$-rays were detected in an array of 6 seven-pack BaF2 clusters. Coincidence with complex fragments detected in 12 three-stage telescopes ensured the selection of peripheral reaction events. In order to investigate the pre-equilibrium dipole strength excitation two independent analyses were performed. In the first analysis the energy spectra of the $\gamma$-rays were evaluated in the statistical model framework while in the second one the $\gamma$-ray fragment angular correlation with respect to the nuclear spin vector of the composite system was studied. Both methods indicate the excitation of dipole strength in the highly deformed dinucleus and provide dipole resonance parameter sets that are in good agreement with each other.
