mini-disk or DAT?

Dear list,

I'm about to start a series of experiments on voice quality, and am
planning to use a portable mini-disk recorder to record speech from
subjects with. Afterwards I intend to carry out some acoustic analysis on the
speech samples, including harmonic-to-noise ratios and jitter and shimmer
measurements, among other things.

However, it has been brought to my attention that, if one wants to do
acoustic analysis on the recorded speech, it may be preferable
to use a DAT-recorder instead.

I am aware that this is an auditory list, but thought that people would
most probably know about this anyway.

I would appreciate it very much if anybody could explain any pro's
and cons of using a mini-disk or DAT recorder.

Thank you very much in advance,
