I just posted the below on Stereonet as there is a substantial number of Supratek owners there. But I've been interested for some time in the various types of remotes. Neither my MFA Baby Ref nor Supratek (AFAIK) remotes use the almost ubiquitous RC5 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RC-5) protocol; both preamps have remotes which are cheap and nasty compared with the product they're controlling. These pramps deserve better! I'd appreciate any insights on whether there are other common-ish standards for remotes out there - and of course any advice on replacements for my dead Supratek one. ________________________ The basic remote which came with my Supratek Chardonnay/Sauvignon got moody then died. Changed batteries twice, checked innards for corrosion (non-obvious), cleaned with DeOxit anyway - no joy. Sometimes red light stays on, sometimes it won't respond at all. I can't find the identical model anywhere - and the amp has always deserved better than this cheap-feeling little thing. Have any other owners with similar remotes replace them? If so, with what? I don't think it's a standard RC5 thing (which would make life easier) but could be wrong. Your suggestions for alternatives or for finding another Select 1 would be much appreciated. Thanks from England.
