Niles R-6L Universal Remote Control
Our take on the Niles R-6L Universal Remote Control by Crutchfield's Tara W.
Add this remote to your Niles MultiZone ZR-4 Series 2 audio receiver to easily control playback in any of your listening areas. Instead of getting up and adjusting the volume or selecting a new source using Niles' in-wall keypad controls, just aim this remote towards the keypad. It transmits the remote's commands back to your ZR-4 MultiZone receiver, which in turn passes them on to your connected music sources.
The R-6L comes pre-programmed to operate Niles receivers and many brands of audio/video components. It can also learn specific functions from your existing IR remotes.
