SONY TCD-D3 DAT Recorder

In 1990, Sony launched its first portable DAT player the TCD-D3. It is about the size of a typical Walkman cassette player. The TCD-D3 can be powered by a proprietary Ni-Cad battery or a 9V AC power adapter. It can record and playback at 3 different sampling rates, 32kHz, 44.1kHz and 48kHz .

The TCD-D3 came with a proprietary cable - the POC-DA12. One end of the cable has a 7-pin plug to connect to the TCD-D3 the other end has two optical leads, one for input and the other for output. Recording is possible via microphone, line inputs or optical inputs. The TCD-D3 was very popular, thousands and thousands of units were sold!
