DAT (Digital Audio Tapes)

We can help transfer your DAT tape. Digital Audio Tape or DAT tape is an audio record and playback media that Sony launched in 1987.  The tapes are about the same size as miniDV video tapes, just a little larger and thicker; 73 mm X 54 mm x 10.5 mm.  The tapes recorded in qualities higher, lower, or equal to CD’s.  The tapes were recorded using 48 or 44.1 or 32 kHz sampling rates and 16 bits.

The intention of these tapes were to replace the audio cassettes but in fact due to expense they only seemed to stay in the realm of recording studios and high end audio systems.
