i really wouldn't get a DAT at this stage of the game.  serious HD recorders are right around the bend.  if i was just starting out, i'd get a Nomad JB3 instead.  record straight to .wav.  quick transfers to HD for burning to CDR via Firewire.  

really the way to go right now, and less than half the price of a DAT.  the best part?  no tapes!  scroll down in the Recording Gear section here where you just posted.  lots of good info about this very topic.

peace

I would recommend the D100 if your getting a new one.  Two reasons, first you get this nifty remote with a new D100 that is very useful for stealthing....that if you bought an M1, it would cost you another $100 or so.  And also, the D100 is a non professional unit, meaning that if Sony still does flat rate repairs, the D100 qualifies, while the M1 does not.  Only reason I add the qualifier is because I have heard conflicting stories as to whether they still do flat rate.

Regardless, the remote is worth it IMHO.

They don't make the D100 anymore.  You can find them new in box on Ebay sometimes.  I'd say go with an M1 if your buying new.  The D8 is more robust but they are more power hungry and the on board AD converter is not as good as the M1/D100.

Until the portable HDs come way down in price, there is nothing wrong with DAT recording.  They are a trusted technology!  The M1 that Scott recommended is a great unit.  I have had mine since 98 and not a problem!  
It is one of the few still in production and is in the $500-700 price range depending where you look.  It has a great AD converter in it as well.  Considered the Pro dat unit by Sony.  It is SCMS defeatable which is nice b/c you can clone clones!  The D8 has SCMS, so copying tapes that way can be difficult
The Tascam DA-p1 is also being produced, but is around double the price.  It has full size heads vs the 1/2 size that the M1 has.  Hope this helps
