Excellent sound quality

Best sounding Recorder ever. In Tests even better than Panasonic SV 4100 and Tascam DA 30 Mk II.

The best sounding DAT recorder ever made. Weaknesses include SMD caps and cheap buttons (all fixable). Two versions - with and without off tape monitoring of the recording as it's being made. Same 4 motor mechanism as the pro deck PCM-R700/R500. Goes for silly money on ebay and if you're archiving via spdif/toslink not worth the extra. A PCM-R700 would be cheaper and just as good. (although obviously nowhere near as pretty)
