Hi, some months ago I bought the Tascam DA-3000 recorder, having used a small Korg MR-1 for some years.
I mainly record from my vinyl rig Lyra Atlas — SME V — Hanss T30 — Aesthetix Io Eclipse — Einstein The Tube mk2.
In my rig, analog blows digital out of the water, but this is the best candidate.
The answer is a clear yes.
This is the first digital recorder I have нажмите сюда after some DATs and others that does not make me ashamed that my old analog and much-modded Revox A77 stands in my loft.
Also, for some, по этому адресу Tascam may be a good investment since its DAC may outperform the DAC you already have.
I had ссылка Stello DAC that went out the door.
However, some aspects of the Tascam are problematic, and others can probably be improved.
A first issue is connectivity and ease of use.
It would be great if the Tascam could record to a hard disk, or at least play back from it.
The manual says a hard disk can be connected through the USB port.
I bought a Seagate Wireless Plus 1 TB hard disk to try.
Perhaps it would be recognized if I reformatted to FAT32, but then I would not have any use of a big hard disk, the limit is 32 GB I think.
So I am back to recording to my 32 GB Sandisk SD card, eight LPs or so, with hand written notes, what track is what title, and then carrying the card and paper to my main PC, naming folders and transferring the files.
BTW this was very slow, 19 mbps, since my card reader was not USB 3 compliant, I changed, and now it is much better, 84 or so mbps.
The ideal would be to have the Tascam drive as a unit on my home network, this is why I bought the Seagate wireless, but as stated - no success so far.
Experiences with the Tascam or similarin this and other respects, are welcome.
Note that, the problems so far are minor, for me, compared to the benefits.
The sound is usually much better than what I get from CDs or the web excepting some SACDs.
I can bring my analog rig around, so to speak, playing back on the Korg Mr-1 or the Tascam itself, which is light weight and semi-movable.
I think that DSD playback will become more easily available in the future.
If Pono had included DSD, I would have bought one.
I have moved some steps further.
I found a utility, fat32format.
To be sure, I also did a Нажмите для продолжения format on the Tascam.
I am glad to report that продолжить чтение size remained 930 GB, I was afraid the Tascam would take it down to 32.
And the disk was still recognized when I plugged it back into my PC.
However, I could not quite make it work, in wireless mode — the disk insisted on coming up as a media unit, treated by the Windows media player, which does not recognize.
Nevertheless, I now have a portable library of analog-sounding посетить страницу, 250 albums or so with a 1 TB disk, that can be brought along with the Tascam or any other DSD-capable player that accepts an external USB-connected drive.
Perhaps it is the battery inside - I don't need an external mains adaptor which I hate, anywhere near my analog systemthe disk works just fine connected just from the Tascam USB port.
However, I met a brick wall regarding recording to the hard disk.
I wondered about the SD card and so I called them and they confirmed that it isn't a USB DAC at all.
Maybe so as not to monopolize sales of their UD-501?
Well, they lost my patronage on that point and I decided to fence have Лоток кабельный лестничный DKC LI5010 100 х 50 х 3000 мм theme until something with better connectivity comes along.
It sounds like you do in fact have it working as a USB DAC directly from your hard drive?.
How do you catalog 250 albums with the User Interface on the Tascam alone?.
I was hoping to hook it up to a music server running J-River.
Am I asking too much?.
I've waited 30 years for digital to finally come of age and don't mind waiting a few more if this isn't ready to record and play DSD files directly to and from my computer based music server.
You can use it for playback from a large external drive formatted by Fat32format.
Although I have not yet managed to record to the drive, I can record to a SD or CF card, and then transfer to a PC.
I just take note of what LP sides go to which dsf file.
Then, when the SD card is full, I put it in my PC and transfer the files wherever I want them.
I do all the folder naming and file tasks on the PC since the Tascam like all similar devices I have used is inferior in this regard.
I can use the Tascam is several modes: 1 Recording vinyl or live musicjust described.
Or live recordings, etc.
This includes playback of LPs I borrowed and recorded.
I have never used J-River.
Since it seems to recognize.
Fully agree regarding digital coming of age.
Should have happened long ago.
I looked at the Tascam and decided not to get it partially because of the small disk issue.
I got a Korg MR-2000 instead.
Unfortunately, they are only available used.
I write to the internal drive on the Korg and then connect the Korg to a PC via usb to transfer the files to the PC.
Like you, I find the digital version very close to the vinyl.
I am waiting until I get a DSD DAC before doing all the conversions.
I want to decide if I should do it in PCM or DSD.
The advantage of PCM is the ease of declicking.
As far as Портфель FERRETTI know there is no inexpensive option to declick DSD.
I originally was looking at a unit that connected directly to the PC through usb, but decided it was better to go directly to disk and avoid any timing issues with usb and the PC.
It sounds like you might be storing the whole side of a record as one file.
If you want to turn that into tracks, you might want to look at Vinyl Studio.
It works with DSD files and allows you to pretty easily separate individual tracks.
It connects to an online database can't remember which one and 5 your options to identify the recording and then imports the track titles.
You can then separate into tracks, which is a manual process.
But you do not have to type in all the track names.
It 5 a little getting used to, but I can now separate into tracks in 10 or 15 minutes, depending on the album.
It also will declick your file, but requires you convert to PCM first.
There is a free trial version of Vinyl Studio that has all the features, it just does not allow a declicked file to be output.
And, yes, J River does handle DSD files.
It can also convert DSD to PCM and vice versa.
I've had the Korg MR-2000 and now the Tascam DA-3000.
Both very good recorders, but I personally feel the Tascam is better, especially when it comes to https://csgoup.ru/100/domashniy-kinoteatr-philips-hts2500.html processing.
There are large SD and CF cards that are very fast too so transfer to a computer is easier.
The Korg USB interface is rather outdated since it is not USB2.
However, IMHO, both Korg and 5 units need substantial hot-rodding in order to нажмите для деталей close to vinyl at least my vinyl.
To my ears, the DA-3000 with all-linear power supplies, new clocking and transformer-coupled ADC input no Op Amps is the closest to vinyl when recording in DSD.
Best wishes, Alex Peychev APL Hi-Fi Alex - the usb on the 5 is only used to transfer files.
As long as it does that, and it does that fine, I don't see any issue with it being certified.
To transfer files I just go into usb mode and move the files onto the PC with Explorer.
Easier and cheaper than moving a card.
My Korg has the Busman input mods.
I do not plan to use it for playback.
I prefer to use J River for playback.
Comparing vinyl to digital, either PCM or DSD, is very dependent on the DAC.
When comparing PCM to DSD people are usually comparing the characteristics of the DACs rather than the formats.
I had done a very extensive work on the Korg before giving it up.
This includes external linear power supply and ADC input stage, as well as other things.
Still I prefer the Tascam.
I never used the Korg or the Tascam for playback.
Monitoring was done through a digital interface directly to my DAC.
However, I've don't know of a PCM DAC that can perform as well as DSD.
It would save us all a lot of money.
Even for a product like the Ayre, some people like the PCM better than the DSD.
Different strokes for different folks.
For example, I can hear a difference between PCM and DSD using the Korg as a DAC, but I would be hard pressed to say one is significantly better than the other.
Just to make things more interesting, as you know, most of the DSD DACs actually convert to a multi-bit format for final playback and some convert to PCM for playback.
The DSD stream can actually be compared to analog, because even with a simple RC low pass filter it is already converted to analog.
Don't try this with PCM.
Interesting experiment is feeding this DAC with PCM and then with same PCM information but previously converted to DSD.
In both cases data is processed through the multi-level DSM, but, for some reason, DSD sounds superior.
It is probably the digital filtering involved.
This is the reason why many current manufacturers use the DAC chips with external digital filter programmed to DSP or FPGA.
Still, DSD sounds more analog to me.
Best, Alex First the good news.
I brought the Tascam and harddisk along on holiday - as source in the Ming Da amp and Aurum Cantus speakers system at our cottage.
Better than the Korg Mr1.
Not surprising perhaps, but i am glad i can get such a large percent of the sound in the main system - in a very modest system like i have here.
It is more open and layered than with the Mr1.
Less sterile and cold than Sacd from my other source Oppo 981.
Also, changing the driver tubes in the Ming Da to NOS Rca 12bh7 and 12ax7 has helped.
Dsd pcm debate - agree with both sides.
Dac means a lot.
But to my ears Dsd is better.
Not heard top class pcm dacs though.
There is a modded version of this Tascam available by Decware.
I have 3 Decware amps and speakers.
I'm very happy with their products.
This Tascam might be worth checking out, as soon as I have the money.
All in all, in my situation, it does very well.
The DAC is fairly good, not much worse than my former Stello, and in some respects better so I sold the Stello.
So "fair enough" mid level DAC performance is good enough for me, and the DA-3000 used as DAC delivers that.
Also, it delivers recordings from analog - and it is this capacity that matters most for me.
Especially now, when my Aesthetix Io Eclipse phono stage is in for repair.
I can't play LPs but I can play the Tascam recordings of some of some of these LPs.
All in all, the recordings sound good, much better than web downloads, with the exception of some very good hi-res web downloads.
Most of the problems I hear, reside in the source, not in the DA-3000.
Although it is not quite the "direct" analog.
There is a little extra digital "sheen", even with 2 x DSD speed recordings, especially in high dynamic parts of the music, but mainly, the recordings are much better than lower format digital recordings.
So the DA-3000 is maybe not quite a replacement for my old work horse, the Revox A-77, the analog tape recorder, but it is getting close.
Hi - an update from my side.
No, I cannot record directly to my external hard disc.
But it mostly plays OK, used as a file library.
I have about 600GB of DSD files on my 2TB Seagate wireless plus external hard drive, cable-connected to the Tascam USB port.
I am not sure, how much the disk can take, before the Tascam gets into trouble too many files, out of filename space, or whatever - but so far so good.
I have had some problems though.
Once, doing a huge 100 or so gigabyte copy from my pc to the Seagate, something went wrong, and Tascam would no longer recognize the disc, I had to reformat it.
But it mainly works fine and the only problem with this solution - as long as the disc and recorder cooperate - is a long starting time.
The Tascam tape recorder icon starts to spin and keeps on spinning for 2-3 minutes for the Seagate disk.
On the other hand, the Tascam is then transformed into a formidable media player with a 300 album library at hand, so for me, this has been a great solution.
I am considering exactly the same configuration to start digitizing some of my vinyl.
As I recall, you have the Io with volume controls, correct?
This is what I have in my system but not the Eclipse, for which I envy you!
Are you connecting the Tascam to the RCA or the BLR outputs?
Are you experiencing any frequency balance problems due to impedance loading with both parallel outputs in use?
I connect the Io into the Benchmark with страница interconnects and then use a digital coax cable to connect to the Tascam 3000.
Its set up as a slave so it lets the Benchmark do the converting and then its passed through to the Tascam and puts it on the flash card.
This does a better job than the Tascam alone.
I use the meters on the Tascam which are a lot better than the meters on the Benchmark for the recording level.
I don't leave both outputs connected to the io at the same time when I'm recording.
I think it sounds better this way.
Jwm, thank you for sharing how you're doing this!
Since you're recording to PCM, I understand your preference for the Benchmark.
I'm strongly considering going with double DSD for my recordings, so the DA-3000 makes sense for that based on what I'm reading.
I'm hoping to record while I'm Футболка женская Конан Варвар and to have a recorder always connected for that purpose.
So, I'm not surprised, but a bit disappointed, that you're hearing an improvement in sound quality by disconnecting the parallel cable to you amp when you're attaching the Benchmark.
I see that Benchmark's analog input impedance through it's XLR inputs is 200k ohms.
The DA-3000 is only 22k for the RCA inputs and 10k for the XLR inputs.
This suggests that the Benchmark would be better isolated from the second parallel output on the Io, but it still is an audible degradation to have both connected.
The specs show it as having only XLR analog inputs but you say you are connecting with RCA interconnects.
Are you using an RCA-XLR adapter going into the Benchmark from the Io?
There has been no comments from me, due to no recording on the Tascam.
My на этой странице source, the Aesthetix Io has been repair for a long time.
Now, it is back.
Rushton: using the Tascam to its best capability double DSD is the best way, I believe.
And, I prefer recording to the Tascam through a good preamp I use Einstein The Tube rather than direct from the Io.
An ideal might be the Io through the Callisto or an Atma-Sphere MP1 but the Einstein does a good enough job for me, now.
I tried some recording from the line out SE taps on the Einstein, but the balanced out with volume sounds better, Volker at Einstein writes - "by far".
This makes the recording more of hassle - I have to change the balanced out cables, unplug from my amps, plug into the Tascam, to record.
Better digital streaming Tidal Master, etc has narrowed the gap to my vinyl drops, читать vinyl still has an edge.
Not impressed with DSD - maybe you have the wrong DAC, it is not optimal with the Tascam?
Judging from the Tascam alone, I have experienced that double DSD is what it does best.
I was a bit surprised that a preamp maker told me to use balanced out volume controlled rather than line out, for recording.
In the old days it was always "use line out".
I recorded many vinyl drops on my trusty old Revox A77, and the line out was the way to go.
Are there others, recording from vinyl, who have experiences in this regard?
The 5 philosophy has been formulated as 'straight wire with gain'.
My experiences point to the fact that the right combination of gain stages is a key for this 'with gain' part to work.
For example, having a Riaa with volume controls, I can tune it optimally as a source for my preamp.
My preamp volume takes over, from there.
Much like getting the right juices flowing, or mixing a sauce right.
One might think, introducing one more gain stage is bad, but sometimes, it is not.
However, it is very dependent on the quality of the gain stage.
A lower quality gain stage will compromise the whole amplification chain.
A nice thing about the "mixed" approach where amp stages can be volume controlled, is that you can tune them to the level where they sound best.
I am using the Tascam as my main DAC.
I either record from vinyl, play vinyl recordings, or play digital music.
My source for digital is the Squeezebox Touch.
The Tascam performs all tasks, but switching between recording mode and digital input DAC mode is a bit of work.
Recording mode - DSD 5.
Recording levels need adjustment too.
I sometimes get a warning message "Digital input is illegal" in playback mode, yet it plays and records ok.
While I am at it - one last thing.
I went down too low on my early DSD recordings, and have to turn the volume way up - 15-20 percent to sound standard loud, on playback devices like the Fiio X3ii.
It sounds pure but too weak.
It is probably OK to record DSD files a bit lower than the over-compressed ссылка на подробности sound standard, give them more room to breathe, but I overdid it.
I am testing, what is the right level.
And I agree that you must try to come close to max out on the peaks when recording.
I have used it to record the analog out from SACD, DVD-A, LP's, Blu ray concerts and live TV broadcasts.
I then transfer those recordings to my external hardrive for playback through my Bryston BDP-2 player.
But, I don't think that using the units Dac for playback is a good thing.
Jury is still out but I do like what I'm hearing.
I like the NOS Dacs, but this unit with upsampling and Decware output stage takes this unit to a completely new level!
To record at DSD128 I connect it to an Antelope LiveClock at 44.
This significantly improves both ADC and DAC sections of the Tascam.
The LiveClock has a 12-18Vdc power port that can be upgraded with a good linear power supply as an alternative to the stock wall wart.
The LiveClock can also be synchronized to an 10mHz master atomic clock.
This may seem like overkill, but with this set-up DSD128 recordings played back through my Esoteric K-01X get very close to the LP.
TIA Chris The Tascam has a Word Clock Sync 75ohm BNC input for connection to an external master clock, and a setting on the screen menu Светильник настенно-потолочный SILVER LIGHT KISS WENGE 826.40.7 switch from internal to external master clock.
A higher precision master clock will improve both recording and playback of SD files, and also conventional DAC operation from the SPDIF input.
Chris I have another question which is kinda basic but before I jump into an external clock I need to ask.
To connect the Live Clock I would use a BNC Cable from the Word SYNC Out from the Tascam to a Word Clock In on the Live Clock, Then another BNC cable from the Live Clock Out to the Word Sync IN connector on the Tascam?
Then go through the menu and sync accordingly?
Sorry if this is too basic but my gear in the past was always internally modded with upgraded clocks.
Sorry OP not trying to hijack the thread.
Set LiveClock to 44.
If you decide to purchase one, Sweetwater has great customer service.
They also sell Canare BNC cables in various lengths.
The stock unit is capable of very good DSD128 recordings.
With lite internal modifications to the ADC and power supply sections, the recordings become nearly indistinguishable from the LP source.
Externally, the unit responds to a better power cord, footers Stillpoints Minisand above all, synchronization to a good Word Clock Antelope LiveClock powered by a Hynes LPS.
Tascam is unresponsive to requests for schematics, so I limited the scope of internal modifications to what I could understand from inspection and a manual trace of the ADC section.
This is an improvement, but nothing like digging into the ADC section.
The ADC section is a simple circuit, comprised of two stages of electrolytic coupling caps and NE5532 SOIC op amps, a balanced JRC NJW1195A volume control 5, and a Burr Brown PCM4202 ADC chip.
The NE5532 is a generally well-respected op amp.
I replaced them all with Panasonic FM and raised the value of the op amp filtering caps from 22uf to 100uf.
I bypassed eight 47uf electrolytic coupling caps with a combination of small film caps.
This was a bit of work, but nothing beyond what a basic technician could do in 2-3 billable hours.
The modified ADC and power supply section takes the unit up several notches.
You sit on the couch, stroking your beard, musing that what looks like and prices out for the Pro Audio market, is really anything but.
There is little on the DIY or Pro forums about modifying the unit.
The DECware mod addresses just the DAC section.
In any case, the above mods are within the reach of anyone with good soldering skills and a spare afternoon.
Can you recommend a particular isolation kit?
Thanks for all the info on upgrading this unit.
The Bellesons are источник статьи replacements for the original regulators.
I reused the original thermal pads and screws.
BTW, desoldering the stock Suncon electrolytics from the audio board requires a little technique.
The OEM solder is so dry and desiccated that it won't melt for extraction without first flowing on a bit Врезная кухонная мойка Longran Techno TEP 170.400 fresh solder to reactivate it.
Thereafter extraction goes smoothly with removal braid or a vacuum bulb.
The multilayer PCB is of high quality and there is no tendency for pads or traces to detach.
Good luck if you try it!
Now I just need to find the motivation to re-record everything I did prior to the mods.
In response to a question from me, Belleson support contacted me last weekend and kindly offered to include insulator kits at no extra cost.
I used the screw insulator insert from each kit over the original heat sink screws.
If I had to do the installation again, I would use both the original and the Mouser insulation sheets.
However, the center tab of the SPZ 79 is the unregulated input, so isolating the SPZ79 is necessary.
I wonder if I ordered a different part or if Belleson changed their design recently.
In any case, the unit works post-modification.
Turntable is being set up at the moment.
Tascam uses four 2200uf and 6800uf Panasonic FK filtering caps that are keepers, but there are two Suncon 100uf filtering caps that appear to be at output of the Belleson нажмите чтобы узнать больше and three small Jamicon electrolytics that may be worth replacing.
IIRC, Belleson recommends a higher capacitance than 100uf at output of the SPZ-- which is why I increased filtering capacitance at the downstream op amps from 22uf to 100uf.
If you try the audio board mods, be gentle with the wide, flat ribbon cable.
It has many tiny foil traces, several of which began to fray and peel back a mm or so during reinsertion.
The solution was to use long sharp scissors to trim back the ribbon a tad and restore clean traces.
The Panasonic FM electrolytic coupling caps for the ADC should have their.
There not enough room to do the bypassing as an afterthought.
Just an update that I replaced the remaining stock Jamicon and Suncon electrolytic caps on the power board with Panasonic FC.
This produced a modest improvement in SQ in DSD128 recordings, but worthwhile given the small effort of removing the power board once more.
I think this is the finish line for the Tascam.
This little project has progressed in parallel with SACD rips via PlayStation 3.
In short, the Tascam is a sleeper and a killer.
Reporting from using the Tascam unmodified.
Comparing my vinyl rips with Tidal.
The rips are better.
Comparing to sacd on an oppo player results are more equal but even here 5 vinyl recordings are best.
I transferred 50 gb more, from my pc to the disk.
I reinserted the disk in the USB contact on the Tascam.
The disk was no longer recognized.
It came up with Root and Playlist, or just garbled letters "L — L", when I pressed Browse.
If I select it the Tascam hangs and must be restarted.
I upgraded the firmware from 2.
I tried a Quick format on the Tascam, but again, no help.
I had to do a Full format, which went fairly quickly 20 minutes this time.
Is the Seagate compatible with the Tascam, used as a music library, for playback?
This is the second time the disk has failed, after transferring files from the pc to the disk.
It could be semi compatible, and still work OK, if I had known more precisely why things go wrong.
After the full format, I copied ten LP recordings, 38 gb, вот ссылка the disk ca 6 minutes, from my pc.
The Tascam read the disk 5 minutes and played the recordings OK.
Too much — too many files, whatever - and the whole disk must be reformatted.
I give it a new go, copying 20gb of files.
Does Tascam recognize it?
Yes, so far, no problem.
Another 30gb is copied.
Windows recognizes that the disk is 1.
So it is obvious that some limit is reached, already in the disk info.
For now, with 90 gb of files, it plays OK.
That is, ca 20 LPs, in double dsd format.
But not very convenient, either.
Copying 20gb of files and then make the Tascam reread the disk takes me 15 minutes.
However this outputs dsd downconverted to pcm.
The Tascam must use SPDIF input and the recording format must be pcm not dsd for it to work.
And the sound is notably poorer, more congested and dull, than true dsd from a disk or card connected to the Tascam.
The same recording of Joni Mitchell's Hissing.
Suggestions welcome - a good dsd capable dac able to read my dsd files on my home network, ethernet input.
The Tascam is very attractive as an allrounder but it is really a recorder with addons for playback that are limited, and every change of role of the Tascam is a hassle, with a limited user interface and maybe some cable change at the back.
The DAC in the Tascam is good, no worse than my former April DAC, although not high end.
I don't do high end digital.
That is limited to analog.
What I need is a fairly good dac, no worse than the Tascam dac component, able to do dsd over ethernet.
Do u have to have a rack mounted system?
RIAA in the digi range with 64 bit architecture.
The associated interface ADCs range from good to TOTL.
Trying to get the best environment for the recorder.
PCM better than DSD on the Tascam?
Not so in my system.
DSD is the reason I bought this recorder.
In my system, recording from a top level vinyl rig, the format difference is very clear.
No one is up there with direct analog.
Thats the way 5 is.
All digital 5 are poorer.
Double DSD is closest to analog.
Prove me wrong - this is what I hear.
Not as simple as it seems, however.
Although the use of the DA3000 in dual roles - switching between playback DAC and recorder - is inconvenient - and the playback user interface is restricted, no remote control, etc.
My mistake - the DA3000 does have a remote, it is just not very convenient when using the recorder as a player, selecting from a music library.
You have to select 5 from the front panel.
Get a better DAC?
If I want to pass the signal "unharmed" from the hard disk through the recorder, to a DAC, I will need to use SDIF3 connectors to the DAC, as far as I can see from the DA3000 manual.
The other digital outputs are more dubious - these are made for DSD transmission.
Has anyone tried it, and what was the result, compared to using the internal DAC?
