Is there a remote control that works with the Soundtouch SA-5 receiver?

Just the app on your phone/mobile device.  They used to have a remote compatible with selected SoundTouch speakers including the SA4, but they found few people used it, and they now use the connection (Low Energy BT) for easier connections to the app.

@Jatugaw, Morlock is correct. However, it can be paired with the Bixi Gesture remote. The Bixi Gesture remote pairs to a mobile device via Bluetooth. As long as that mobile device is on the same network as your SoundTouch systems, the remote can control your SoundTouch systems.

A Bixi remote allows a number of hand gestures, such as raise/lower, wave left, wave right, wave up and wave down, as well as combos of up and left or up and right waves. These gestures can be configured using the Bixi app on the device connected to the remote

To get started:

Connect your Bixi remote

  1. On the mobile device to be paired with the Bixi remote, install the Bixi app from the device's app store
  2. Open the Bixi app and follow the app instructions to connect the remote

Configure the remote gestures

  1. Use the Bixi app to configure the hand gestures to be used for control of your SoundTouch systems

@Madison66, thanks for getting back to us. It would be unlikely that this is possible, but I would love to explore this more with you. Could you please attach a picture of the remote you have?
