When the Bluesound player is out of sight from the listening area and you want to use an IR remote to control the player, you are required to connect an IR extender to the Bluesound player. An IR extender can be purchased from a third-party retailer (Niles, Speakercraft, or Xantech).
Generation 2 or later Bluesound players (except PULSE models) have a mono 3.5 mm IR IN port* on the rear side panel.
Note: *The mono 3.5 mm IR IN port of the Bluesound players is not power enabled. You should provide external power to the IR extender from a wall power socket or USB port of the connected Bluesound player.
- Connect the IR extender to the mono 3.5 mm IR IN port of the Bluesound player.
- Place the receiver (sensor) end of the IR Extender with a direct line of sight (with no obstructions in between) to the IR remote.
Bluesound players support IR remote learning. For more information refer to our Help Center article.
