Interesting question about the 44.1, 48 & 96 Khz recording thing and to see who uses what.
Given that in our culture, the audiophile ( a person who actually sits down to listen to music) is .... well.....dead.
He's been replaced by a guy on bike in the city street wearing two ear buds, a helmet, and water bottle. So, the only places people appear to really be "captive" to audio, is when they are sitting in a supercharged movie theatre..... who's days may also be numbered.
But it does appear that "mobile audio", and Home theatres are the future of sound in the the ol U.S. of A. So for me anyway, announcements about "new breakthroughs" in audio purity kind of fall on " deaf ears" so to speak.
In any event, I have a Panasonic DAT Machine that I've had since 1998 and it has about 2 hours of use on it.
Is anyone out there really using their DAT's anymore? Or has all of the technology in our computers put that beast out to pasture as well?
I just want know how people are using them,..... if they still are,.... and the reasons that they keep them.
Otherwise, maybe my old / new DAT is destined to be an E-bay retiree?
