Wish there was a CSP3 with remote
03/19/23 at 06:50:27
 
I know Decware sells the ZTPRE with an option for a remote. Wondering if there would ever be consideration to make a remote control option for the CSP3? Iíd be all over it if it existed I thinkÖ. Love the Rogue RP-7 I use, but not gonna lie, the remote control it has appeals to my laziness A LOT.

Wonder if itís something anyoneís heard might be considered in the future for CSP3?

To me, part of the charm is not having a remote. It would ruin the tactile experience and the holistic nature of it all.

Agree with Brad for the most part. A Zrock with remote tapering would be welcomed! Might have to search a third party implication. Or, borrow from Seanís model Cool

Yup, and hence the need for it to be an optional upgrade (or downgrade for the purists 😂). Iím sure the more practical reasons it isnít there is that it would need more space to fit in an Alps volume control, remote control receiver, etc.

At that point it wouldnít all fit into the CSP3ís current form factor.

This is it. No room at the inn for the remote parts. 99% sure the space limitation would be prohibitive.

My source and the ZTPRE have remotes. . . I use those, though rather infrequently. I generally play an entire cd and make most balance or volume changes by hand.

I didnít have a remote for 25 years. It actually made me not turn on the stereo sometimes if I knew there were people around and I would have to make constant adjustments. I have one now and I will never own another preamp without one. I make volume adjustments often.
I am on the list for a csp3, which does not have one. I plan on using it for a bedside headphone rig. So not as concerned.

In the Decware ecosystem - other than the ZTPre - the only other way that I know of to get remote control functionality is to get the Decware Swithbox and get the remote control option. If you don't need the extra connectivity of the Switchbox, it is an expensive price to pay for merely remote capability though.

Sai, I hear you. It is painful to admit that I've grown lazy enough to tell Google to turn the lights on and off rather than getting up and walking 6 feet to the light switch. My Freya+ preamp with remote has been good enough until my Sarah 300B arrives. I may no longer need a preamp to make my source sound great, but if I do my plan was to ultimately replace it with the ZTPre, but would definitely go with the CSP3 instead if it came with a remote.
