I can't be as encouraging regarding the MCP-18. It is not currently showing on the new website, which may indicate a question about it.
This is not for sure, but I have not received a confirmation as of yet.
Yeah, I needed a new remote for my new MCP-18, as the supplied one was damaged on arrival. Corresponding with the seller, they stated that they were told a replacement wasn't available from Nuforce. So they swapped me with another one they had in stock (thank you Audio Advisor!).
If they have discontinued the preamp, that is a shame as it is a great sounding unit, took my system up a notch.
I highly recommend if anyone else out there has this unit/remote, buy a cheap URC-RF20 universal, or something similar (a learning remote) and transfer the codes over to it. Then stash the NuForce remote somewhere safe, as the build quality of it for day to day use is...shall we say, minimal.
