You want someone to tell you not to buy it? Don't buy it. In case.

I wouldn't spring for a remote, but I would see if I could get someone to program a learning remote with the Densen codes. You might offer a dealer 50 bucks to program a universal remote if you can find one that will accept the Densen codes.

This site might be worth a look.

In the event that you break both legs, buy it. Otherwise, walk over and adjust the volume if you think you want to.

Re: Is it a remote so important?

Many times that there is an optional remote you are not just buying the remote but also the motor that drives the volume control so using a universal isn't going to work. Bryston is a great example. In their products where the remote is optional if you don't get the remote you won't be able to use a universal because there won't be the optional motor installed. Ask the dealer if a universal will do the trick or not. It may, but then again it may not. Also consider that the remote might make it more desirable on the used market when it's time to upgrade. Remote=higher resale value. As does original box and instructions. If you don't upgrade too often this may not be important. Just my two cents.

Sometimes that short walk may be the only exercise one gets all day.

I keep all my remotes stored in a closet. Call me old fashioned.
