Vita Audio R2I turns on with light switch!


Standard Member
Hello first post on this forum.

I bought a Vita Audio R2I for my wife's Christmas present and am pleased with the quality of the sound from this piece of kit.

The problem is that when we turn the light on in the room the Vita powers up from standby. Today it was turning itself on and off every few minutes.

We have 2 energy saving pendant fittings in that room and i'm wondering if the remote control eye on the Vita is picking up something.

Does this sound plausible?

Has anyone else had this problem

Yes, not a rare problem with IR remote controls and CFL lamps.
Maybe you can partially screen or desensitise the IR sensor on your R2I with some masking tape- trial and error required.
