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!

Sehr zu empfehlen
AndreasSchiro, 26.09.2018
Ich habe mittlerweile zwei dieser Recorder im Einsatz - einen im Webradio-Studio und das hier bei Thomann bestellte Exemplar als Summenrecorder für Chor- und Orchesteraufnahmen.

Der SD-20M empfiehlt sich für alle Anwender, die nicht viel Schnickschnack benötigen und Wert auf eine saubere Tonqualität legen, das Ganze zu einem mehr als ansprechenden Preis, wenn man sich mal andere Studiorecorder der Profiliga ansieht. Wenn man die "Ohren" abschraubt, kann man ihn auch abseits eines Racks einsetzen, die entsprechenden Gummifüße sind beigelegt (waren sie jedenfalls bei mir, ansonsten sind sie für ein paar Cent überall zu haben).

Die zusätzlichen zwei Spuren zur Haupt-Stereo-Aufnahme betrachte ich als nettes Goodie, da sie nicht über XLR/TRS sondern zwei Cinch-Buchsen auf der Rückseite eingespeist werden und sich nicht wie die beiden Hauptspuren präzise über zwei Potis am Gerät einstellen lassen (Aufnahme-Pegel). Ansonsten kann der Recorder alles was man von ihm erwartet und macht insgesamt einen stabilen und wertigen Eindruck. ich nutze das Gerät im professionellen Bereich und vermisse nichts ausser vielleicht ein paar zusätzliche Spuren. Da unsere Aufnahmen aber ohnehin immer über einen Mischer abgenommen werden, wären diese bei unserem Einsatzgebiet überflüssig. Eine Besonderheit ist die auch bei wesentlich teureren Geräten nicht selbstverständliche zuschaltbare Phantomspeisung an den XLR-Anschlüssen und die Möglichkeit, den Recorder über vier AA-Akkus/Batterien zu betreiben. Wir nutzen die Batterie-Option als "Notstromquelle", falls auf einer Veranstaltung wieder mal jemand "aus Versehen" das Netzkabel herauszieht ("Jaja, Du bist ja nur gestolpert").

Ich kenne wirklich viele Soundrecorder und denke sagen zu können, dass der SD-20M in seiner Preisklasse wohl als Preis-Leistungs-Genie ziemlich alleine da steht. Andere Recorder sind entweder deutlich teurer oder deutlich schlechter (zumindest was die Tonqualität und das Rauschen angeht).

Ich würde ihn jederzeit wieder kaufen.

Muchas virtudes y alguna carencia
V, 30.08.2020
En general estoy satisfecho con este Tascam SD-20M, tras ponerlo a prueba grabando de de diversas fuentes (micro, piano y bajo). La calidad del sonido es muy buena, sobre todo en WAV, con la pega del tamaño del archivo. La calidad en MP3 es menor por la compresión, pero más que suficiente para mí.
Necesitaba un grabador con entrada frontal con phantom, salida de auriculares y que grabara en un medio barato, en este caso las SD. Este era el único del catálogo que lo cumplía.
Como ventaja comentar que tiene alimentación también a pilas como backup de la fuente del enchufe.
La carencia más importante que he visto es la pobre gestión de archivos. Sólo permite un nivel de carpetas para organizar y no permite elegir el nombre del archivo que generas al grabar. Si al menos tuviera conexión al PC, podría valer. Lo que hago es sacar la SD y ponerla en el PC y hacer las modificaciones.
Mejorable el display que es muy pequeño y cuesta de leer. Un tema de poco espacio en el frontal o precio, imagino. Incómodo.
Una pega es el mando a distancia. Además de tener que comprarlo aparte (raro), funciona mediante cable (raro y retro). Es un mando minimalista, con muy pocas funciones.
Compra recomendable si buscas un grabador en estado sólido, pero lo hubiera preferido sin las carencias que comento, aunque costara 30 ó 40€ más.
Como siempre, venía todo perfectamente embalado y precintado
