I'm currently working on a project and I'll be sending it off to get mastered in the near future. So what should I bounce it down to, DAT or CD-R? I'm currently working in 24/48. I've heard that DAT has lower error rates than CD-R, but as far as I know DAT's are only 16 bit, right? If DAT is the preffered media....... Then what DAT machine do you guys recomend? (If it makes any difference) I need one that has a SPDIF coax input, as I will be using outboard converters. I'd also like opinions on DAT media. Which is the highest quality?
