Iamm NTR-S20 Media Player Review

A smaller version of the NTR90, the Iamm NTR-S20 HD digital recorder sits in the palm of a large hand. It packs a punch nevertheless: SDHC reader, HD digital tuner, video ins and network connectivity. It could well prove an excellent budget recorder.The NTR-S20’s inner workings are built on exactly the same software as used for the NTR90. We aren’t going to repeat everything that we’ve already written on the NTR90 but simply tell you about the differences between the two products. The NTR90 review is in any case available for consultation.

Pros

Very compact

Multimedia compatibility ok

Digital HD tuner and video ins

SDHC reader

DTS and Dolby Digital support

Cons

Simplistic interface giving nothing in addition to the competition

Dolby True HD can’t be decoded or converted to stereo

DTS and Dolby bitstream but not for HD MA and TrueHD versions

Low-end remote

Noisy fan

Conclusion

This product isn’t perfect, that’s for sure. However, it does do pretty well in the low-end segment and offers decent performance. Of course you can find more advanced options elsewhere but they’ll cost you a good deal more.
