Onkyo DT-901 DAT Recorder


The Onkyo
DT-901 was aimed purely at the home market, and in particular tried to appeal to the audiophile by using high grade electrolytic capacitors and a specially designed low noise power transformer.


  • Single-Bit A/D and D/A Converters for Improved Sound
  • Enhanced Ease of Use Thanks to High Performance Tape Transport MechanismThe DT-901 features variable-speed FF and REW with a maximum rate of 400 times normal speed. It can wind through a 120-minute tape from start to finish in a mere 27 seconds. Sluggish search access times were one of the weak points of analog tape decks. The DT-901 provides convenience on a par with CD.
  • Dramatically Reduced Mechanical Noise Thanks to Silent Record/Playback Design
  • SCMS (Serial Copy Management System)SCMS allows the user to make digital recordings from any digital source, including CD players and other DAT decks. Only one generation of copies is permitted, however. So it is not possible to make digital copies of a copy. How does the system work? The DAT deck to be used to make the copy checks the digital source signal for a special code that tells it whether unlimited copies, only a certain number of generations of copies, or no copies are permitted. (These codes are recorded on the master DAT tape along with the music signal.) Naturally, with analog sources there is no such restriction, so the user can make as many generations of copies as desired.
