Welcome to day one of Remote Central’s Week of Advanced PlayStation 3 Control!
Each day this week we’ll be bringing you a new review for one of six sophisticated infrared-to-Bluetooth adapters that offer universal remote control owners uncompromising control over their Sony PS3 game console. Whether you use the system as a Blu-ray disc player, a music player, a video streamer or even an actual game system, these advanced converters offer you from-the-couch convenience to turn the PS3 on and off, along with a full complement of 51 different functions.
Today we’re posting the introduction segment along with our complete review of the Audio Authority BlueBeam C-1071. As the most expensive adapter in our review (and coincidentally also the first alphabetically), the BlueBeam offers a number of advanced features including USB-based power tracking, configuration via computer, custom IR codes, onboard user macros, and even 3 different methods of power input.
Stay turned each day this week for the next segment in our review, culminating on Friday with both the final adapter and our conclusion!
