The Harmony 900 isn’t quite as huge and crazy as the Harmony 1000, as it retains the form factor of, you know, a remote control, like the Harmony One. But it packs in a colour touchscreen to let you control pretty much anything you want. It’s the best of both worlds.
It’s also got a new RF to IR blaster to control your home theatre components. Instead of sticking small IR receivers to the IR inputs of every device in your cabinet, you put the blaster in front of all of them and it fires off its signal in every direction, hitting everything at once. It makes the install process easier, at least. This way you can control closed cabinets (or cabinets behind you) with RF, so the repeater will send the IR to the desired components.
Look for the Harmony 900 later this month for $US399.99. [Logitech]
