Howdy. I was wondering if anyone still uses DAT? I still have a D7 and D8 that have been in a bin of audio gear under my stairs and it got me thinking how antiqued this technology might be.
I'm sure plenty of people do, I've even thought about buying a small DAT player before when they pop up on CL. But I think for the most part it's dead technology as if you are recording digital it's just as easy to record into a computer now, and make as many backups as you want with a few mouse clicks. I see reel to reels and other quality analog gear coming back as people like the warmth of recording the bass and what not on tape.
