    After many years of distraction, I have just found the time to try coaxing my old Hi Fi system (Linn Sondek LP 12, Audiolab 8000A, Audiolab 8000CD , Rotel tuner, Linn Index speakers ) back to life.
    My immediate priority is to try and locate a handset to remotely operate the CD player (mine has disappeared in the mists of time) - does anyone know of a possible source , or if any other make of remote control could substitute for the original?

    I realize it's probably a big ask and that otherwise i'm doomed to manual operation............

    The other problem is the Amp is currently silent when the Phono input is selected - but functions just fine with CD or Tuner - I presume this is likely a symptom of age and will probably require the attention of an Audiolab specialist - but just on the offchance there is someone out there can suggest an easy fix, I would very much appreciate to hear from you..........

    Ebay is probably a good starting point in your search for a replacement Audiolab remote handset, plus there are other hand sets available which can be tuned to your Audiolab CD player (I would suggest contacting a hi-fi retailer for specific suggestions. I have a spare hand set but this is for the 8200A / 8200CD and may not be compatible. Again, check with Audiolab themselves (0845 4581122 or Steve Hughes via email - steve.hughes@iaguk.co.uk.
    Steve is the Helpdesk Technical Advisor and has been very helpful to myself in the past). I hope these suggestions are helpful.
