It appears the Audio Authority requires a proprietary IR receiver.

Here's one of the FAQ's from the Audio Authority web page:

Q. What type of external IR receiver may be used with the BlueBeam?
A. The BlueBeam is not compatible with standard, 12 volt, modulated IR receivers. A special IR receiver will be available soon, so check this website for updates.

It appears that all except the Audio Authority will work with an external IR receiver. I was ready to buy the Audio Authority unit until I read that you have to use their proprietary IR receiver.

As I understand they were redesigning to support standard IR emitters, but I don't know if that's happened yet.

The device uses standard Sony IR codes so why could you not use a standard IR repeater system?
Also when you say "requires" what do you mean?
The bluebeam doesn't "need" anything else to make it work.

All of my gear is in a closet so I use an MRF-350 to relay commands to the gear. Having the unit work with the MRF-350 would be a must for me.

According to their FAQ you need to use their special IR receiver.

The BlueBeam has a dedicated IR input and, apparantly, that input is not compatible with standard "12V modulated" IR distribution systems.

The Audio Authority BlueBeam C-1071A is the new version that will support standard IR emitters and is available now
