A remote control

The problem with remote controls is that few constructors are able to understand how they work and even if they could, where could they obtain the parts to build one? OK, you'd buy one of those universal ones and try to program it.

But there is another way, and it's cheap and reliable.

I prototyped one a few years ago, and now I'm going to give it another go and try to make the design available for the DIYer to use in controlling a motorised volume control.

As is normal for me, I will be showing pictures as I go, warts and all, because we like a laugh now and then.

(actually, I'm trying to do something that Bob has been wishing for, for years, but don't build his hopes up)
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

I find that I hardly ever use a remote (for HiFi) not even with the CD player, With network streamers maybe but I don't have one. I did read years ago that a NAD CD player with out a remote sounded better than the one with and they were the same but for the remote control, I will admit I can't see why.

I'm a bit like you, Jon. I have remotes for the CD player, the amp, and somewhere I think, the tuner in my second system upstairs; but the only one I use is the remote for the streamer. Oh for the remote which will turn the LP over, clean the record, and set the stylus down again... LOL

It is more appealing as you get older.

Even with the amp I hardly ever use it, I do sit next to my rack so most time it's easier just to use the amp's controls. As I'm into vinyl I tend to listen to an album from start to finnish as the artist intended so I do the same for CD. I'm not agaist remote controls for HiFi as I do see them as a usefull tool for people with some form of disabilities.
