The hi-end infra-red remote control for the JMF Audio’s product range.

JMF Audio has always strived to provide the highest performance yet easy to use products. MBR1 allows to control past, current and forthcoming JMF Audio devices in the most simple way.

Everybody knows how challenging it is to control an audio or AV system: multiple remote controls, command or bus cable between devices, buttons you don’t know what to do with, keys that are too small, etc.

With JMF Audio it is one great remote control for all devices, no additional cabling: clean, no fuss!

MBR1 is the result of our researches on ergonomics and smart operation. MBR1 is tooled in a block a aluminum. The edges and the bottom are soft and the top is brushed for a great feel in the hand. The JMF Audio logo is engraved while the command logos are bright for best view. We aimed at putting as few keys as possible and let the audio devices softwares manage for the most intuitive use. A great care was taken for the keys to present a great tactile effect. Finally, for the pleasure of the eyes, the shape is similar to the electronic devices’ front panels and the finish is identical to their cases.


The MBR1 remote control was studied so as to reflect well the JMF Audio’s philosophy when you hold it in the hand.
