TASCAM SD-20M 11
2 – Names and functions of parts
CAUTION
Before making connections, turn this unit and all equipment
to be connected off (or put them into standby).
Confirm that phantom power is OFF before connecting
a line level device to a MIC/LINE INPUT (BALANCED)
1/2 jack. If you connect a line level device while phantom
power is being supplied, that device and this unit could be
damaged.
Do not connect or disconnect mics with the MIC/LINE
INPUT (BALANCED) 1/2 jacks when the phantom power
is set to ON. Doing so could cause a loud noise and might
damage the equipment.
Turn phantom power ON only when using a condenser
microphone that requires phantom power. Turning
phantom power on when a dynamic mic or other mic that
does not require it is connected could damage this unit and
connected equipment.
When using condenser mics that require phantom power
and dynamic mics together, be sure to use balanced
dynamic mics. Unbalanced dynamic mics cannot be used
when phantom power is enabled.
Supplying phantom power to some ribbon mics will break
them. If you are unsure, do not supply phantom power to a
ribbon mic.
Some condenser microphones will not operate when
phantom power is set to 48V.
