what shall the dat do for the sound? many tracks was recorded with tape..often even tapedecks.. and when you delivered dats the cutting often transfered them to tape before the cutting.. at least on the cuttings i ve seen.. maybe that has changed later on.. in any case ther is no beneficial sound in using old dat´s.
