I could see hidden audio possible but don't know for sure


You can record audio on any magnetic part of the tape so you back in the day you would see an issue where you got antsy and would have false starts and have to rw and re-record - in some cases you would get wonky A-TIME due to this - where the A-TIME would be off the leader of the tape (the first minute or so of "silence" most of us would try record prior to recording a set)


I could see offset audio maybe being recorded if the original record deck was way out of alignment - this would prevent most decks from finding the audio and may require a few FF/RW attempts for other decks to find it. 


I have a tape that was recorded way out of alignment and the 7040 (R700 couldn't find any audio only errors) can find every other frame - I haven't tried the RW/FF to see if it can find the missing ones though.

I have it pm me your email and I'll send it your way - it's only 435kb - it's now attached to this thread


You will prob need sony tape tools to install it - been a while since I have done this.. - This is about 6MB so can't attach - let me know if you want me to email.

I just picked up a SV-3700 off of eBay, in very good running shape.  Doing transfers with it for a friend's collection.  Any concerns besides eating tapes?  It seems they'll all have that issue in time.  I was gonna get a Tascam, but this Panny was priced well below a functioning Tascam DA-30 mkii.  Any advice would be appreciated.  This is my first DAT recorder.  Note: I'm only use the play/rewind functions, going AES out the back to a Sound Devices 633.
