My crappy Marantz SR5200 Amp Remote Control has finally given up the ghost (although its never worked brilliantly since I bought the amp). Now I have tried looking for a replacement without any joy. I have briefly looked in this forum for advice but I am still unsure aboutt what to do. I quite like the idea of going for a univeral remote but don't like the idea of paying £100 or more. Also, if I did go for one of these how would I program it if the original doesn't work. I am a complete newbie to this particular forum and din't know it existed until I had to start thinking about getting a new remote. Basically, I want to get my Marantz Amp up and running using a remote at the cheapest possible cost but reading this forum you have now got me all thinking about these universal programmable remotes. Although, I am not really prepared (or the missus would not let me) to pay more than £50. Please be paitient with me as I am a complete newbie to this particular forum. Your advice and thoughts are very much needed. Thanks. By the way, if it helps, my other equipment is Sony TV, Pioneer DVD, Sky+.
