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!

In the meantime, I have two of these recorders in use - one in the web radio studio and the one here at Thomann ordered as a sum recorder for choir and orchestra recordings.

The SD-20M is recommended for all users who do not need a lot of bells and whistles for a clean sound quality, the whole thing at a more than attractive price, if you look at other professional video recorders. If you unscrew the "ears", you can also use it away from a rack, the corresponding rubber feet are enclosed (they were anyway with me, otherwise they are to have for pennies everywhere).

The additional two tracks to the main stereo recording, I consider a nice goodie, because they are not fed via XLR / TRS but two RCA sockets on the back and can not be precisely adjusted as the two main tracks on two pots on the device (recording -Level). Otherwise, the recorder can do everything you expect of him and overall makes a stable and valuable impression. I use the device in the professional field and miss nothing except maybe a few extra tracks. Since our recordings are always taken over a mixer anyway, they would be superfluous in our application. A special feature is the switchable phantom power on the XLR connections, which is not a matter of course for much more expensive devices, and the option of operating the recorder with four AA batteries. We use the battery option as an "emergency power source" if someone accidentally pulls out the power cord at an event ("Yeah, you're just stumbling").

I know a lot of sound recorders and think I can say that the SD-20M is in its price range probably as a price-performance genius quite alone there. Other recorders are either significantly more expensive or significantly worse (at least as far as the sound quality and the noise is concerned).

I would by it anytime again.
