Just wanted to recommend the universal remote I picked up for my Rotel RCD-855: Radio Shack catalog number 15-1908 (5-in-one).

Great remote because (A) it controls a pile of vintage gear including CD players and amps/tuners, (B) it's documented online, (C) it takes 4 "AAA" batteries and is really powerful... you don't even need to point it at the gear, works in a radius of about 300 degrees, and (D) is available cheap (used) on eBay. It's also black in color rather than the ugly modern silver, and is a good size/not too big or small.

Very good remote for stuff that came out prior to 1998 (when the remote was released)... probably won't work for most DVD players though.
