Ayre C-5xeMP Owners - remote swap? and tips

Anyone interested in swapping out an older (4 bolt on face) remote for the newer backlit multi-function remote?

I just got this player with a New from Ayre remote control (dealer replaced it) and realize I prefer the old school remote. Mike at Ayre has confirmed to me that these are backward/forward compatible (but thinks it odd I would want the older one!). I'm told this backlit remote was an upgrade option for a while. Trade would be for a pristine condition '4 bolt' remote only. I posted a listing for this also.

And...any tips on footers, pcords, hi-fi fuses for a C-5 newbee?

I tried squishy, balls, cones, cork, etc feet on my CX-7eMP and the best I found was the Ayre wood blocks. They just present a tone that the others didn;t have. Of course, the C5 may react differently.

I also am using a Kaplan cord on mine. The little bit of added warmth from this cord is welcome.
