Fitting the batteries
The PRISMA Remote is powered by two LR03 batteries, also known as AAA batteries. Before using the remote you need to fit the two batteries supplied with the remote.
- Press slightly on the top of the battery compartment on the back of the remote:
- Slide the back cover parallel to the case towards the bottom of the remote and remove it:
Do not attempt to use a metal object to open the cover, as you may scratch the case.
- Insert the two batteries, observing the correct polarity indicated by the ‘+’ signs on the inside of each battery holder:
- Replace the back cover by sliding it towards the middle of the remote, until it clicks into place.
The batteries should last for about a year with normal use.
The following features are available for any product you are controlling.
For details of the individual functions available for each product refer to the PRISMA Remote diagram for that product; see PRISMA Remote product support.
The PRISMA Remote has a backlight, to allow you to see the keys in a dimly lit or dark room.
To turn on the backlight:
- Press the LIGHT button.
The light will stay on until no key has been pressed for ten seconds.
To select most functions you simply press the appropriate key.
Some alternate functions are available by a long press on a key of about half a second.
Putting products to standby
Pressing the STANDBY button puts the product you are currently controlling to standby, or turns it on from standby.
Giving a long press on the STANDBY button puts all controlled products to standby, including the TV.
To enter a single digit number, such as an input number on a preamplifier, or a track number on a CD, you simply press the appropriate number key.
Entering two-digit numbers
If you need to enter a two-digit number, on most products you can do this as follows:
- Long press on a digit key to enter the first digit.
- Press a digit key to enter the second digit.
For more information see the product in PRISMA Remote product support or the product’s user guide.
Selecting the product to control
The PRISMA remote can control up to four different Primare products, plus a third-party TV.
To control a product you first need to tell the remote which product to control, using one of the three remote mode buttons on the remote: AMP/AV, TV, or PRE/CD.
- To select a product on the top row, AMP, TV, or PRE, press the corresponding button.
- To select a product on the bottom row, AV or CD, press the corresponding button twice.
The green indicator lights at top left of the remote indicate whether you have chosen the top or bottom option.
Default remote modes
As supplied the PRISMA Remote assigns the following products to the remote mode keys:
|AMP||I15, I25, or I35|
|AV||SP25 or SPA25|
|PRE||PRE35 or SC15|
|CD||CD15, CD35, DD15, or DD35|
The PRISMA Remote can control one product from each row. If you have just these products you don’t need to do any special configuration.
Alternatively, you can assign the four product keys AMP, AV, PRE, or CD to any product you want; see Configuring the remote: Configuring the remote for specific Primare products.
Controlling a TV
The TV key is dedicated for use with a TV and can’t be assigned to a Primare product. For information about configuring the remote to control your TV see Configuring the remote: Controlling your TV.
