There are contradictory statements here. On the pictures of the plate amp, you can apparently connect an infrared receiver. But this requires the button board, which in turn is not compatible with the plate amp. somehow something is still missing…
Sorry my mistake, It doesn’t appear that the Arylic button board is compatible with that unit.
The manual does show how buttons can be added, but it’s a do it yourself option using momentary push buttons and resistors. I guess it would be dependent of your DIY skills to make this option happen.
Ah, I didn’t read the description carefull enough, indeed the Ir-reciever is included with the expansion board. I think I will solder the 3-pin socket 180 degrees rotated on the Ir-expansion board instead of messing with the wire itself…
Unfortunately, I can’t tell you which components can be used. However, there is a suitable extension from Arylic for the Amp Board in the form of the button board, which already has an IR receiver built in. The button board can be connected to the amp board with an around 10cm long cable (included in the package). If you have the skills you can dissemble this board and reverse engineer it. Other way you can use it as a plug and play solution.
If you need a longer solution out of the box, i recommend the IR extension board. The IR extension is connected to the button board and cannot be connected directly to the amp board.
By the way, the sensitivity of the receiver is surprisingly good. 10 meters is no problem and you don’t have to aim precisely with the remote control.
