    whats the pronto like ?

    I have the MARANTZ RC2000MKII which I have had for almost two years and is a bit clumsy and clunky.

    The pronto looks nice ! What exactly does the docking station do ? Does it mean I do not have to worry about batteries ?

    Do you think I should treat myself ?

    well seeing as its good enough for Jenz and lots of the others whos opinion I value I have taken the plunge and just ordered from www.letsautomate.com

    Thanks for the price Jenz, as with all you HKL advice this too was a winner.

    Delta,

    Someone's just posted in another thread that Richer Sounds have it for £150, but I've got last month's catalogue here and it says £199 so I don't know. :)

    ...but even if it is £150 it probably doesn't include the Docking Station so letsautomate is probably your best bet.

    Wish I was allowed to get one! If my other half knew I'd spent £200 on a remote control I think I'd very soon be single!!

    The Pronto docking station charges the batteries and makes the remote look a little more cool.

    BUT, if you do buy one don't leave the charger plugged in all the time. According to Remote Central "top up charging" can wreck the batteries. Apparently you should only connect the charger when the Pronto batteries need a full recharge.

    Regards
