DAT is merely a storage medium. It's no better or worse in terms of sound quality than the DAW you use, save for its 48khz limitation (a non-issue unless you're working at 88.2 or higher...and even then, some machines exist that allow for HD DAT). And it was significantly higher-resolution than CDs.

Have you ever used DAT? Or more specifically, have you ever printed an analog mix in parallel to DAT and compared the outcome to other formats? What exactly gets lost?
