Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

None of those are supposed to make quality sound either?

remote controls are noisy radio sources inside the preamp. They lower the quality of the preamp invariably. Open one up. where is all the fancy shielding to prevent interference? Any DIY person who'has tried various volume controls will mention how rotten most volume control devices sound. The remote control is the worst. Why pay for CJ with a remote? Why not get cheap SS and pay 1/4 for some lower quality sound due to the remote. Others, I suppose with begin the "perfect sound forever argument" regarding remotes rather than digital. Lower priced integrated amps cannot afford to put in very high quality remote volume controls or shield them, therefore cheap and crappy or none. CJ obviously chose better sound over crappy but convenient.
