The sound on digital audio tape (DAT) recordings is much more precise than that of traditional magnetic cassette tapes.

Digital audio tape (DAT), a new concept in magnetic recording, produces a mathematical value for each sound based on the binary code. When the values are reconstructed during playback, the reconstructed sound is so much like the original that the human ear cannot distinguish the difference.

The reproduction is so good that American record companies have lobbied lawmakers to prevent DAT from being sold in the United States, claiming that it could encourage illegal CD copying.
