Can I add infrared sensor for remote control?


I am looking at purchasing a hifi board for my RPi. I'd like to be able to control this with an infrared remote. Currently I'm using a remote pi board from http://www.msldigital.com/pages/support-for-remotepi-board-plus-2015/ - this works very well but the audio quality from my pi leaves a lot to be desired.

Is it possible to fit this board to the hifiberry, or is there a simple way of attaching an infrared sensor to the hifiberry? This would be preferable to using the remotepi board, because there seem to be a number of cases available for the hifiberry. I am a complete beginner when it comes to hardware tinkering, but I'm willing to learn. Are there any simple instructions for adding an infrared sensor?
