I don't see it as strange.  The guy is waiting for pro-level hard drive recorders, and he probably had the MD sitting around collecting dust.  Why spend the scratch on a DAT when he know's he'll be tossing it down the road?

I guess I can understand why some folks are waiting for the "portable HD" type solution, but to be honest, I dont see any credible evidence that we will see anything in the size range of DAT in the near future.  As a result, stealthing will likely continue to be a DAT medium...strictly based on size...guess alot of it depends on what you are taping...

Well, you can always use a Nomad JB3.  I love mine.

True, but while there are still reliability issues with the JB3, I will be sticking with my D100!

I have no reliability issues with my NJB3, while using the newest firmware.  I even use it to do MD-opticalout-optical in NJB3 to transfer old shows I have on MD to the NJB3, and then USB to my PC (much more reliable and quicker than using optical in on my soundcard and running a capture)

FWIW, YMMV, of course ;)

If the JB3 had a coax in I'd own one right now. It doesn't so I'll wait and contnue using DAT in the meantime.

Yes, I agree, that sucks bigtime.  I have been mulling over the purchase of a V3, but I have heard the S/PDIF to optical converters (like the CO2) aren't always that great...

So maybe I should go for the V3, then?  :D

Guess I just need to get used to the idea of the converter when I upgrade the a/d/pre.
