True, they used their 3M machines up until recently. I have made quite a few recordings the with those machines at Polar and they still sound pretty good, I think it´s 20 bits and 50k sampling freq or something like that. I also made a few recordings on the Mitsubishi 32-track digital about ten years ago and those recordings sound good today as well. All of that stuff was mixed through great analog consoles.
