Question Need Pro Advice

Can anyone tell me what is currently the best portable DAT recorder "available"? I just had my DA-P1 stolen and I want to know if there is anything better out there I can get as a replacement. Does anyone know about the Marantz PMD-671 PC Card Recorder, it is a 24/96 machine that records on compact flash cards. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Judging from my experience (and the fact that the factory has gone to three shifts building them) the Sound Devices portable units are cornering the market. I love my 744t.

Well I must say that after reading about your "bush" recording experience and all of the other related info out there, this piece seems to be the coolest recorder I have ever seen. I haven't heard it but can assume from the unanimous consensus it sounds great. It seems that with a retail of over $4000 it should be everything and some. Now I feel like putting my other DAT machines out back with the 8-track tapes!
Thanks for the info!

If you only need two channels and don't need all the fancy timecode stuff, the 722 is a bit more affordable...

I own a DA-P1 and love it; I replaced it with a FR-2 by fostex...
