The operating concept
The Revox Joy stands out as a result of its perfect design, which was deliberately created without any operating elements on the glass front panel.
The device is operated completely from the Revox Joy S208 remote control. The remote control can be paired with up to eight Revox Joy products, so that the corresponding Joy audio network receiver can be controlled through the room selection list.
Everything can be done through the S208 remote control, from selecting music to configuring the Revox Joy. You will find some examples of this under the "Operating examples" menu item.
Up to 24 devices can be configured in the S208 with the Revox S208 Easy Creator, a PC configuration GUI for the S208 remote control. You can, for example, use infrared commands to control a television that is connected to one of the analogue inputs on the Revox Joy.
The full scope of the Revox Joy functions can be called-up and operated through the 240 x 320 colour display on the S208 remote control.
You will find some examples of how the Revox Joy can be operated in the slideshow.
The graphics shown in the Play view are dependent on the UPnP AV service that is deployed and the metadata from the available music archive.
As well as selecting music and radio stations, the Revox Joy's local inputs can also be called up from the remote control. These can be given individual names with the remote control, making them easier and quicker to select as "TV", "Sat" or "Apple TV", for example.
Using the Easy Creator software, the S208 can be configured to your personal requirements through a PC running Windows XP or 7.
The Easy Creator software from Revox includes an extensive database of many different IR-controlled devices. The required IR commands can be programmed onto the remote control from this database. If required, the buttons can also be individually assigned.
In addition, the Easy Creator application can also be used to program different zone names and to assign devices to the four hotkeys.
To combine operating steps, the Easy Creator Software allows you to assign several commands from the Joy or the infrared database to one macro.
With this comprehensive software you can configure your remote control to your individual needs. In conjunction with an IR to KNX converter Revox even provides in collaboration with the brand Gira some basic functions of the control of a building management system
S208 in several rooms
If several Revox Joy products are used in one house, these can be controlled with a single S208 remote control if required.
The maximum number of devices that can be controlled by one remote control is limited to 24. This number is made up of a number of wireless, radio-signal sources (Revox Joy products) and infrared sources.
In total, up to 24 devices can be programmed per remote control. The total number of Revox Joy products and IR devices is limited to 24. If, for example, four Revox Joy products are operated through one remote control, up to a further 20 IR devices can also be added.
Eight zones (rooms) can be created per remote control. Up to 4 devices can be assigned to each zone through hotkeys. This comfort function allows the most important devices in a room to be reached through one display.
A maximum of six remote controls can be paired with one Revox Joy product. If further remote controls are paired with the Revox Joy, the "oldest" remote control is dropped from the list.
