    Indeed Grant...

    Once I got over being a bit annoyed with the dealer, which didn't take long, I'm quite happy if the remote comes back to me fully working. I will check it out to make sure it's ok but I won't be using it as I don't use remotes

    Remotes are nice to have. Especially if you want to skip a particular song on a CD, without the remote youre more likely to just suffer through it.

    And, it really helps the resale value of the component. I am shocked and amazed at the high priced used gear that no longer has the remote! When I was shopping for a used CD player, I was shopping in the $1 to $3k range, and two thirds of all units no longer had their remote! Either lost, or broken, some took quite a loss on their resale price because of it, or some still wanting full price had their units sit for a year with no buyer. I wound up buying a Cary 306, and the seller had two remotes! Having lost it, he bought another and then found the first one. I try to take good care of my remotes, for that very reason. Keeping them clean, and in a safe place, and dont let batteries leak in them.

    A very nice CD player youve got there! I gave it some serious thought when I was shopping, and a handsome unit it is!

    I've never used remote's and don't ever feel the need to skip tracks however bad they are..

    I'm sure having a working remote will help with resale though which is why I was keen to get it repaired. If I ever get a ML Power amp I'll need the remote for the 390 as, apparently, it's a great pre... I've no idea though

    To be honest the 390 sounds so nice. I know it's easy to praise the new kit you get but I'm quite certain it's the best I've ever heard cd to sound... it's not impressive sounding at all but just very nice...and, as you say, it's quite "handsome" and built like a tank

    Put it on eBay.

    Working 390 remotes could be a scarcity!

    The remote came back fully working, which is nice...

    Now I've noticed a slight problem with the 383.. the left channel has a very faint crackle sound... It's still under warranty and I've contacted the seller who's fine with me sending it in for repair to ML UK and they'll pay for the repair. I will also get them to do a full service while they have it as it's getting on a bit just to give it the 'once over' to check everything is as it should be

    Very sensible, especially for a keeper.
