RE: Love CJ sound, hate lack of remote

If you love the CJ sound you will NOT be happy with something else.

You have three choices.

1- Upgrade$$$$ to a higher ended CJ with remote. BTW their remote units are amazing. Basically a Placette audio control system AND preamp in one.

2- Buy a Placette volume controller. These units will NOT interfere or degrade the sound quality.


3- This is what I did - DIY your own volume control between source and preamp. I ordered a Gold Point 25k attenuator and Bent Audio IR motor controller. Used a Radioshack plastic box, soldered two RCA cables DIRECTLY to the volume pot, $5 wall adaptor and bingo - remote control!!!! I've A/Bed it dozens of times and it also does not interfere or degrade sound. total cost about $325.
