Tascam SD-20M

Richard173, 20.07.2016
I've been waiting for the Tascam SD-20M to arrive at Thomann, I purchased one as soon as it came through the front door of Thomann's!! I find the sound quality very good, however I the lcd screen is very small and unlike the mini dice player, there is no facility to name the songs?
If you have 546 songs on a sd card, it would read Tascam 0001, or 0546. Not knowing what the song is. Finding song is a nightmare! Also Tascam have made the instructions very complicated. Getting into files is a difficult operation too, making life hard. Disappointing really.One good idea is the foot switch which can start/stop the play and forward/ back, (at extra cost). Saves turning to the player! The Tascam SD-20M looks the part, the 1u unit has rack ears so it fits in a rack comfortably. At over £200 I must say it could have been the best player since sliced bread!

Very good recorder with a question mark

30.08.2016
The Tascam SD-20M I bought primarily for longer recordings from the radio, but also for the recording and playback of CD's or LP's over my stereo, as a replacement for my MiniDisc recorder, which now mainly acts as a playback device.
The sound as well as the processing are excellent. The display is similar to the Tascam DR-05 (rather small), the operation is simple and logical, a detailed instruction manual in German is included.
I also own the Tascam Recorder DR-05. When using micro SD cards with adapters I can use this card in both devices.
Please note: Each recorder has its own folder on the SD card (called "SOUND" with the SD-20M and "MUSIC" with the DR-05). So if I want to play recordings from the other device, just insert the SD card into the PC and move the files to the other folder or copy them.
The SD-20M also handles cheap storage media, eg 16 GB SD cards of a well-known drugstore chain for under 9 EUR.
Now to the question mark: The SD-20M runs under "4-channel" recorder, which is initially true. You can record simultaneously at the rear RCA jacks and the front XLR connectors, but only 2 x in stereo. A single mixing of the individual inputs or the individual tracks is not possible, since only one stereo RCA output is available. It is therefore not a typical 4-channel homerecording device, as the device name can be expected at first.
The remote control is not included in the scope of delivery.
Conclusion:
+ Very reasonable price
+ Very good sound
+ Good workmanship
+ Easy operation
+ Also with cheap SD cards
+ Low power consumption
- no real 4-channel operation possible
- Remote control only available wired
