Despite not being able to record at 44.1kHz (unless modified) this is the best early DAT machine due to its superlative 4 motor mechanism. Much, much better than the 300ES, 500ES and even the 55ES (as these had overly complicated three motor mechanisms that relied heavily on bits of felt). It also had tantalum caps in the headamp (unlike all later models) so no potential problems there. It still plays back at 44kHz so for archiving to PC it's ideal.
