Customer Question
I have a Technics HD501...
I have a Technics HD501 audio system that would be about 20 years old. The tuner, CD player and tape deck are all still working well but the remote quite frequently fails to turn on the tuner.
I have installed it on a Logitech Harmony 650 remote but I am not especially happy with the performance. Can you suggest a better remote for use with the audio system, please.
