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.
DAT was not the first digital audio tape; pulse-code modulation (PCM) was used in Japan by Denon in 1972. Denon's development dated from its work with Japan's NHK Broadcasting; NHK developed the first high-fidelity PCM audio recorder in the late 1960s. Denon continued development of their PCM recorders that used professional video machines as the storage medium, eventually building 8-track units used for, among other productions, a series of jazz records made in New York in the late 1970s.
