Audible Illusions remote control

Maybe someone can explain to me why an AI line stage can be had with remote but not with a modulus. 
I think that is an answer only Art Freitas can answer.  I would call AI.
I suspect, but do not know for a fact, that is has to do with the inclusion of the phono stage. He probably feels that the inclusion of a remote volume control would in some way degrade the phono output.


I did know that, don't know why I said Freitas.  Thanks for the reminder.
