Our take on the Russound SLM-1K

Russound's SLM-1K infrared repeater kit gives you easy remote control of your home theater receiver and other A/V gear placed in an enclosed cabinet, where your regular IR remote's signals can't reach. Setup is a breeze. The low-profile IR sensor gets mounted on your TV's bezel or stand within line of sight of your remotes. The sensor receives your remote's commands and relays them back to an IR hub hidden away inside the cabinet. The hub in turn sends the commands to the infrared emitters, which you place in front of your components. Use any of your existing remote controls or a universal one to control your equipment.

  • complete IR repeater system with IR receiver, repeater hub, and four IR emitters
  • use your existing remotes to control equipment hidden in a closed cabinet
  • the slim IR receiver mounts seamlessly to modern TV bezels
  • control up to four audio/video components

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

this worked for the Sony TV, and the cable box, but the signal did not appear to be strong enough for the Sony Soundbar

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Russound SLM-1K is everything it states. Works extremely well with all (4) for my components.

Pros: Easy setup and works great!

Cons: I wish the IR receiver wire was longer, it's 7 feet long - 10 feet would be better.

Gary from O Fallon, MO on 11/9/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product performed as advertised. It was easily installed. My only complaint is that the adhesive tape didn't work well. I used the Command adhesive strips and attached the sensor to the face of the device but not over the infrared sensor.

Pros: Easily installed

Cons: Poor adhesive

Simple to use

Infrared Connecting Block: The included infrared connecting block features an IR receiver input and four IR emitter outputs. The IR receiver input & emitter outputs consist of 3.5mm minijack terminals. The hub of an IR repeater system, it receives signals from remotely located infrared receivers and channels them to your source components and other equipment.

Four IR Emitters: The Russound Universal Surface Mount IR Kit includes four IR emitters which feature a 10' cable and terminated by a male 3.5mm connector that plug into the kit's infrared connecting block. Each IR emitter transfers infrared commands to a single audio-video component or other device. The IR emitters should be securely attached directly over your components' IR receptors (3M tape included). The emitters include IR blocking covers to prevent unwanted signals.

Power Requirements: The infrared connecting block operates off of standard household current using the supplied AC power adapter with 6' DC cord.
