A "remote" issue

Ok, so this is totally hardly a thing… And I know some people don’t care for the Sprout aluminum block remote …but I always thought is was a really classy piece of kit.
When I got my SGCD…I was kinda bummed with the “average” plastic remote. I know HUGE thing…
I do think it would be cool to have a more high end looking remote control, ala the Sprout. It would match the SGCD (and other PSA products) better. My 2cents.

We now return you to your regular programing…:slight_smile:

Yeah Stonefree1911 i feel you! i also started out with my Sprout100 and i have recently bought and received a SGCD + M700 combo and i SADLY already broke my SGCD remote control - which i am desperately trying to replace. just like you mention yourself is wow is the Sprout remote a classy piece of work, not so much the feel or durability with the SGCD remote control.
i REALLY do hope PS Audio jumps at it to come out with a proper aftermarket remote control to replace the included remote that comes with the purchase of a SGCD. By that i mean a higher quality, more durable, bit more classy looking, same functions, and comfortable in your hand.
when you do, call me first! and i will be the first to buy it! I’m serious about it!

Reach out to PS Audio, I broke one and was able to get a replacement in a few days. I am a couple thousand Km away but still in the states so ymmv. Cheers, Jim

Yeah thanks i have just got a hold of my local distributer and they will send me a preowned romote with no issues, the reason is that they currently had no new ones in store but wanted to help me anyway.
I am always amazed at PS Audio customer support and service with their products😊
The real problem was me being clumsy in the first place. I broke my remote by accident, dropped it on the floor and just at the same time i bumbed and tipped a very heavy chair that fell right on the remote and crushed it to a 1000 pices😱 im not going to lie… i laught and cried at that moment.

Yep, I love my PSA equipment, but the remotes, while functional and generally utilitarian/effective, are a bit of a letdown aesthetically compared to the main unit. I would love to see them do something a bit more…luxurious… with their remotes in the future.

If you want, I can send you the remote we ship with the DSD and BHK pre. There will be a lot more buttons than you need, but it has a nice aluminum finish and feels a lot more robust than the GDAC remote. Controls the volume and can change inputs.

How much might that remote cost me to buy? That looks perfectly adapted to using my system with a Node 2i.

Would that work with the SGCD? I’d love to have that remote over the one it came with.

They’re only $15. Works seamless as far as volume, mute, balance goes. Changing inputs beyond input 6 is a little hard as the silver remote only goes up to In 5.

Well heck yeah! How do I order one?

Shoot me an email and I can enter an order for one. jamesh@psaudio.com
