Does this seem likr the right price?
« on: May 13, 2003, 06:49:15 PM »
Went to Sam Ash today to look at getting a home DAT deck. They only had one in stock, used. Dual deck, Tascam AD302? I forget? They wanted $700.00. Is that a fair price? I'm sure I can find one for a better price on ebay? Any thought's?

They go for between 3 and 4 hundred on ebay.  That said, I know someone here in Iowa that has one, and he is always bitching about it.  Apparently after heavy use, one of the sides appears to crap out.  I don't have a home dat, and if I were to buy one now...which I will [probably do after I ditch the m1, hopefully in the next 6 months, I would get a sony r500.  They can be had used with very little hours from ebay for around 400, which sounds about right to me.  One thing about ebay, definately ask the seller questions to make sure they know what they are talking about.

I got a Sony R300 off ebay, new for $275 a year ago.  Definitely keep your eyes on ebay....there are much better deals out there.

I bought a Tascam DA-20 from ebay for $250 3 years ago and the thing is a tank.  Never had a problem w/ it.  My guess is that it will go soon and I'll get another.

The 302 dual-deck unit is a tank. It is a true workhorse. Anyone having problems with one side of the deck is a unique situation. These things are built specifically to dub tapes in the studio. They are designed to be mules. Thousands of hours can be put on these. I would like to own one and ditch the two DA20 MKII setup I currently have.

On a side note, Sam Ash are the BIGGEST rip-off artists of used equipment. I would shy away from buying any used gear from them. They buy used gear for one reason... to resell it at hugely inflated prices. They probably bought that deck from the owner for $200 and are reselling it for $700. They are just like a cut throat pawn shop. The only bright side to this is that they will usually negotiate price with used gear and you can haggle a bit. Haggling a little won't do too much though with the price set at $700.

I have heard nothing but bad things about the dual deck Trashcans, err, Tascams ;)

Sony R500 has served me well for the past two years, 2000+ hours and still no problems!
