Does CR235 remote work with alpha 1 CD/alpha 5 amp?


Well-known Member
Can anyone help with a simple query? I have an A22 amp with two CR235 remotes. I want to get rid of the spare and a potential buyer asks if it will work with the Alpha 1 CD and Alpha 5 amp. Does anyone have the answer?
Thanks in advance

I don't think it will work with the Alpha 5 amp - I had the Alpha 5+ (the later version of the "5") and that did not have a remote function.

Hmm - just checked with support and, as I suspected, this won't work. The Alpha 5 amp is not remote controlled and the Alpha One CDP, uniquely amongst Arcam CDPs, uses a different RC code set. But I guess by now you may have found this out anyway :-(

Thanks a lot for that John. As has been stated before, it's nice to hear it officially.
