On this thread, two different contributors mention that the Essence remote has IR. Heretofore, I thought it was a BT-only device. Mine works very well in that regard, even if the volume adjustment is laggy by about 1/2 second, which is irritating.
Well, I put my Essence remote in front of my IR Eye and sequentially pressed the four buttons and turned the wheel and nothing happened. Pray tell, is there a manual that describes the IR functionality of the Essence remote?
