I own this board for almost 25 years, it works like new
while all my DAT HS are long, I still use it even if I have newer systems.
It is comparable to the Sony TC-D5 (which also owns) and more tweaks: bias, MPX Fiter.
It is at once a little larger stinks.
The look is terrible! wearing a pair of VU meters round.
the recording quality is amazing with integrated limiter!
Choose a good tape and you will find your recordings in the same ... 30 years.
