    Hi all. I have what is hopefully a simple query. I have three remote controllable hi-fi components and would like some recomendations on the best remote for them. I have an Arcam Alpha 8se CD player, a Cyrus 3i integrated amplifier, and a Yamaha TX-492RDS tuner, so nothing too exotic. I am looking for something simple like the one for all remotes, but they all seem to be TV centric, rather than hi-fi. I could get something like a Kameleon, but that is overkill for what I want. I may someday get a Kameleon for the hi-fi stuff and my TV/DVD/Sky+, but for now I just want something simple for the hi-fi. Any ideas?

    Cheers.

    A MArantz RC1200 secondhand or RC1400 may be ideal for your use mate the harmonies are more AV biased but an H655 will control them all superbly for £60 and will control all your AV kit later

    keep an eye out for an Arcam CR80 on ebay as i got mine for £3.99 plus post normally approx £60. These are still a current model that arcam ship with their av stuff. It's a fantastic remote that will learn and control 8 sources.
    Look here at page 14 http://www.arcam.co.uk/downloads/FMJbrochure.pdf
