    Condition: Like New – 16 months old – would rate 9/10 based only on age. It was included with my Denon 5800, but I have moved to a different style remote due to my spouse’s request and this will be just sitting around. Includes manuals.
    Asking price: $250 plus shipping. Now $225 $215 plus shipping.
    MSRP: $449
    Product Website: http://www.denon.com
    BONUS: I will include a pack of the Fellowes WriteRIGHT touch-pad protection sheets that I used to protect the remote screen (the same type you would use with a PDA), a USB A/B cable that you need to connect the remote to the computer for editing, and a printout of the Aktis software manual from the website. (Bonus package value $25 [​IMG]).
    Payment Options: Paypal or Money Order Only.
    Denon RC-8000 Remote Package Highlights:
    Radio Frequency (RF) and Infrared (IR) Operating Freedom:
    The RC-8000 is a remote control unit that lets you use either RF (radio frequency) transmission or IR (infrared) signals to control your A/V receiver and related gear such as your TV and DVD player, as well as other control components such as a powered video screen and lighting controls in your home theater. RF transmissions are useful when you want to operate systems that are installed in locations out of the reach of IR beams. The RC-8000 unit is equipped with a large 320 x 240 dot LCD touch display with a backlight for easy operation in the dark. The commands of up to 23 components can be programmed into the RC-8000, and its buttons can be rearranged, added, deleted, and their names changed, giving you terrific flexibility in customizing the unit for your home theater or listening room. Of course, the RC-8000 also provides convenient Preset Memory, Learning, and System Call functions.
    RF Transmission, for Easy Multiroom Operation:
    Since RF signals are transmitted in all directions and can even go through walls, they are convenient for controlling systems from other rooms not too far away. Choose from 2 different RF bands, and use dedicated ID codes to distinguish among multiple RC-8001ST charger base stations.
    Large LCD Touch Panel Display:
    The RC-8000’s large 320 x 240 dot LCD incorporates a touch panel that lets you operate it directly by touching the display. It includes a backlight to facilitate operation in the dark as well.
    Editing Functions, for Easy Customization:
    You can program the RC-8000 to control up to 23 different components. You can provide each button with a unique label indicating the command you have assigned it. You can change the assignments at any time, or add new buttons and delete old ones; to make the RC-8000 work exactly the way you want it to.
    Menu screen is easily operated using the GUI (Graphical User Interface) and the joystick.
    Independent Buttons:
    Independent buttons have been provided on the main unit for frequently used operations, such as volume control, channel selection, muting, and backlighting activation.
    Learning Button:
    The RC-8000 contains a large-capacity flash memory that lets you store the commands from your existing remote controls. This learning function is more versatile than that of most remote controllers available today.
    Preset Memory:
    The RC-8000 is pre-programmed with a wide variety of commands of A/V components made by a number of major manufacturers. Simply select the name of the manufacturer from the component preset list and the RC-8000 will operate that component.
    System Call (Macros):
    Up to 20 System Call settings (a programmed series of sequentially-issued commands) can be stored. The System Call programs you have stored can be easily checked on the LCD display.
    User Backup:
    This function lets you back up your customized settings in the controller’s built-in flash memory, to your customized settings and learned commands from memory loss due to battery exhaustion.
    USB Support:
    The RC-8000 includes a USB port that lets you connect it to a PC where you can back up settings or do editing work.
    Auto Power Off:
    To conserve battery power, the Auto Power Off function automatically blanks the LCD screen after a certain period of time elapses. This time period can also be easily customized, as can the backlighting time.
    Non-slip Side Grip:
    The RC-8000 provides non-slip side grips to make the controller easier to handle.
    RC-8001ST Charger Base Station:
    The RC-8001ST is equipped with a wired data output terminal as well as an IR emitter terminal. This wired data output can be connected directly to the AVR-5800 or to the data input port of a Denon RC-616 IR re-transmitter, and you can connect an IR supplemental emitter such as Denon’s RC-618, or other IR emitter types. The RC-8001ST also provides a battery charging function. The Ni-Cad battery pack that comes with the RC-8001ST is inserted into the RC-8000, and you can charge the batteries in the RC-8000 by simply placing it onto the RC-8001ST charger base station. The excessive charge prevention function prolongs the Ni-Cad battery life, even if the RC-8000 is left in the charger base station for an extended period.
