Was looking for something else when I accidentally stumbled onto a Panasonic SV-3700 DAT recorder in a local PC recycle store: "$20, AS-IS, Powers ON"
Did a bit of search on it, and apparently it was a well respected pro machine. Wonder what can I do with it now that most everything uses a hard drive for storage.
I can probably assume that the electronics is OK, but the heads and tape transport may be worn, and in that case it probably will not worth to spend money on it to fix it. Can I just use it's A/D and D/A in that case?
PS: my last good tape recorder was an Akai GX-4000D some 20+ years ago... --
