TASCAM's DA-P1 is a sturdy portable DAT deck with a feature set you'd expect to find on a full-sized studio centerpiece.
The DA-P1 features include a switchable 48V phantom power, built in limiter with 20 dB pad for confidence in recording without worrying about clipping, SCMS free recording, SPDIF I/O, and quick charge battery system with a 2 hour play/record time. Of course it can handle recording and playback at 48, 44.1, or 32 kHz. The DA-P1's mic/line inputs and phantom power are very unique; it's like taking the power of the mixing board with you out on the job. The DA-P1 also has an optional external charger, battery pack, and carrying case, to take it with you wherever you might go. It's the perfect set-up for recording interviews, gathering Foley FX, or just recording no matter where you might be.
