Digital Audio Tape (DAT) to CD transfer
Digital Audio Tapes, popular in the 1990s, were a recording medium that produced CD-quality audio on magnetic tape within a small cassette.
The data was stored using a helical-scan rotary head, similar to that used in a VHS video recorder, and so a DAT is also subject to the same degredation over time as a videotape.
Now is the time to have CD Makers preserve your recordings by transferring your DAT to CD.

The maximum duration of a standard audio CD is 80 minutes (74 minutes for gold archive CDs).
However, for precious recordings, we recommend recording only to about 60 minutes. This is because the recording starts in the middle and ends at the outer edge where some older CD players struggle to read the data correctly.
Digital Audio Tapes tapes come in a variety of sizes and lengths up to 2 hours maximum.
