This is a very fine example of Fostex's premier field DAT tape recorder. This was the industry standard in Hollywood and around the world for time code sync dialog recording for many years! In fact this very recorder was used on more than 20 feature films and countless shorts, commercials, videos and TV shows.
Always well maintained when in service and has been stored in a clean case inside my home since. It records at both line and mic levels and has P48 phantom power if needed. This unit generates time code at 30, 30DF, 29.97, 29.97DF, 25 and 24 frames per second. It features a tone generator, confidence monitor and limiter. Battery power or 12V DC power are not included but I borrowed a battery and gave it a quick test.
It records and plays back fine. Also included are two blank DAT tapes and the original box! I will wrap the unit in bubble wrap inside the original box and pack that box in another box with packing peanuts and bubble wrap for safe deliver.
