Remote (9101A) and Volume controller (9310AM) together?

Remote (9101A) and Volume controller (9310AM) together?

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 7/7/16 Recent Posts
Hi

I'm a proud user of the 8351 Monitors and of course I'm using the SAM System.

Today I got my remote (9101A) and I was wondering why it didn't work from the beginning.
I had to disconnect my Volume controller (9310AM) and then it worked.

Simple question: Why can't I use both (9101 and 9310) together simultaneously? This is very annoying..

Still loving the 8351... :)

Hi,

The system supports only one volume controller at a time, both of them can't be connected simultaneously.

Are Genelecs supported by Logitech Harmony remotes, instead of Genelec?

And, if I buy 8351 and Mutech mc3, can i control volume over remote controller only?

No they are not supported by any other remote.

You can also control the volume from the source, most likely your PC or Mac.

i'd also like both options.

but:
9310AM controller would need to be servo controlled to work match volume of wireless remote.

that means way higher price + additional power source.
not a good move for most of the clientele.

they can't support logitech remotes. too much commitment. they'd have to rush out fixes if logitech ever decides to push a flaky firmware update.

ok, have more questions. I'm thinking to buy 8351 white for home hifi. I would already oredered, but waiting time is 5 weeks at local importer, and changed my mind. Anyway, now I have Mytek Brooklyn DAC, so volume control would be over DAC. But, if later give dac away and buy Mutech mc 3 usb, can I control volume over genelec wireless remote only? I would use speakers with 3 inputs over mutech, and i can not control it over GLM. Is that possible?
I would use GLM just to make calibration and save it in spekers.

Hi,

You can control volume via our wireless or wired volume controller. You just need to have the GLM network connected and the adaptor powered from an USB source/power.

so, GLM must be connected? Than for living room is better to apply DAC.

The GLM network adaptor needs to be powered from 5V USB source/power and network cables need to be connected to the monitors in order to control volume via GLM.

Same requirement. The RF remote does not control monitors directly, it operates through the network adaptor and GLM network.

I'm using a pair of 8351 AWM in my living room as shown below.

I would love a new motorized volume knob combined with an integrated wireless receiver and remote.

The current wired and wireless remotes are really not acceptabe compared to the quality and price of the speakers.

The best solution (but unfortunately not a very good one) I have found after a couple of years is to use the 9101A (only one of them) for wireless volume controller and the Griffin Powermate (ONLY USB VERSION WORKS) for wired volume control. This way you can have two volume controllers but ONLY if your speakers are always connected to a running PC. Unfrortunately there no longer exists a good way (Since GLM 2) to change groups and Digital/Analog inputs. You have to go grab the mouse and start up the monitor every time.
