I was thinking about adding on the remote, but I can't figure out why it costs almost $100. Couldn't I just use the "learn" function of a universal remote to do the same functions for less than $20 (by borrowing, or buying and returning the remote)? Does the remote perform any other special functions?

This is the same design that Grace has made for ~12 years and works for m902, m903 and m920. It is made in the same fashion now as when it was new - before there was a $20 Apple remote made by the billions in China. The retail price is commensurate with the cost to manufacture at our volume, by our employees, in our building in Lyons, CO. Some people still prefer to buy our remote. But, we made it possible to control the m920 with an Apple remote. The Apple remote is very nice and I use it every day to control my Grace m905.

Thanks. I can understand the cost of a traditional build; I wrongly assumed it was a Chinese remote. I'd be all in if it was RF, and/or had a rotary volume control.

We've tested one of the Logitech harmony products - wifi-to-IR translator. They should have our codes in their system too.

I personally can't live without Grace remote, even though it doesn't have a rotary volume control. Using one for over 10 years and never regretted the purchase, as it's really convenient.
