When DAT machines were introduced as a consumer product, they were  
introduced with a fixed sample rate of 48k so that people could not  
make digital clones of CDs which are 44.1k. Film and TV post houses  
adopted 48k as a new pro standard (probably because the 48k only  
machines were cheaper) causing hell and confusion for people in the  
audio industry. Pro DAT machines could work at either sample rate.
