The SaphIR 862P Plasma Eye is a mini flush-mount IR receiver that can be installed virtually anywhere. Highly unobtrusive, the 862P includes white, black, and brass bezels for installation flexibility.

Special optical filtering makes the 862P immune to interference from plasma displays, making it an ideal choice for home theater applications. A blue confirmation LED provides visual indication when the 862P receives IR signals.

The 862P Plasma Eye is also ideal for use with in-wall and in-ceiling loudspeakers for an invisible yet readily accessible location. Russound’s Advantage Series loudspeakers provide a punchout that the 862P fits into perfectly.
