download rightmark audio analyzer and use your Tascam to do a loopback measurement. then use its XLR outputs to record a test file into the zoom and bounce the file back onto the computer an analyze it. see if its any better than the tascam's 97 dB dynamic range.

the tascam line out may not be clean enough to test the zoom to its limit (not a knock on the tascam, its specs are just a bit dated relative to modern interfaces), but it certainly would reveal any fatal flaws

Last time I used RMAA it was on a PCI m-audio delta 410 but I'll get the hang of it

Apart from the Tascam, I also have Zoom F8 - would that be a better choice for this?
