Digital Audio Tape (DAT) Transfer to CD | Transferring Digital Audio Tapes (DATs) to Digital Audio Files

We can digitally transfer your DAT tape to a digital .wav or .aiff file from any of the four sampling modes: standard 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz at 16 bits, and the more obscure 32 kHz at 12 bits. These .wav or .aiff files can then be played on any modern PC or Mac, can then be converted to mp3 or flac, or used for a remastering project.

Using the best in professional DAT transfers, we use PCM-2700 DAT machines for our clients collections of DAT tapes. The key features of this model are the four head design and also the four direct drive transport motors. Sony upgraded the PCM-2700 to the PCM-2700A which included both the (IEC-958 type 1) connectors and also the AES/EBU balanced digital I/O (XLR). Includes time search and 3 level dimmable display.

DAT tapes were a popular, professional format, which enabled recordings of higher quality than CDs! Studios and independent bands began using the format as a high quality master before sending them to CD distribution.
