I love this deck. I picked one up recently and was amazed at how this deck sounds. I actually prefer the DAT format to the CD because the CDs are scratched so easily. It has been a bit finicky though. Especially on reading older recorded tapes I got in the deal. Alignment is a perpetual issue with these. I can even remember this issue back form my IT days dealing with Data DAT drives. If you have the right screwdrivers, hex keys, a good o-scope (100Mhz), and a good reference tape, aligning one is a snap. There seems to be plenty of spare parts available now too as most folks have dumped DAT.
