Tascam HS 20 Broadcast Stereo Recorder

Product discontinued


Tascam HS-20 Overview by GAK

Tascam are known for designing a range of robust broadcast recorders and the HS-20 falls right in to that category. Built with a stereo recorder to capture audio to either SD or CompactFlash media, the HS-20 makes it simple to transfer your recordings too and from the device. You can even make your recordings available on a network for instant remote access. The network feature of the HS-20 puts this recorder in a different league, it can be set up and used as a file server so that recordings can be manually downloaded easily over a network connection. The HS-20 is equipped with solid transport buttons, a weighted jog/shuttle wheel, and a colour TFT touchscreen display. The rear panel includes balanced and unbalanced analogue connectors as well as SPDIF and AES/EBU digital inputs and outputs. RS-232C and parallel control interfaces are also provided. The unit records audio material to broadcast wave format files with resolutions up to 192 kHz at 24 bit.

Ideal in a busy networking environment where audio files need to be recorded and transferred at the press of a button.
