Query:   I am in the market for a new, high-quality tape recorder for
fieldwork. I have been satisfied with the recording quality of an
analog Marantz machine with a good external microphone, but (1) it is
big and clunky; and (2) digitizing analog tapes is extremely
time-consuming. For this reason, I am considering a DAT machine.

Any words on the pros and cons of DAT recorders (and recordings) would
be most appreciated, considering issues such as the quality and
reliability of the machine, and the convertability, price, and
long-term archiving potential of the tapes.

And if I still go for an analog recorder, does anyone have
recommendations for small recorders other than the Sony Professional,
about which I have already heard good things?

Will post a summary.
