The new 95 and 85 series IR kits from Xantech feature five significant advances in IR control to achieve their remarkable sensitivity, performance and reliability in a wide variety of installation environments. Xantech is the only manufacturer building an IR product line around this level of advanced circuit design. IR is a crucial control "backbone" in nearly every A/V system installation, and Xantech is committed to IR that works perfectly every time which demands such a no-compromise approach. If it is an IR problem and Xantech can't solve it, nobody can. All Xantech IR series kits feature advanced circuitry which passes the native IR carrier and data signals faithfully and reliably to ensure proper control of all A/V components. This is superior to the scheme used in many competitive products. They try to "strip" and regenerate the carrier signal, resulting in incomplete and erroneous IR commands which a source unit often cannot execute competently.Versatile IR solution that works with remotes up to 80 feet away. 85-series is also compatible with all types of TV's (plasma, LCD and LED) as well as all satellite and cable TV boxes. Works with CFL lighting.
