Jadis JD-3, volume control question, help

I just bought a used Jadis JD-3 (gold color) with serial number of 12537. I heard that we can adjust the volume directly from it, is that true? Because, the remote that I received was so ugly (like TV remote) and no volume control on it. The seller told me that it was manufactured around year 2000. Please help. Thanks in advance
I have the JD3 drive. I do not know if it's different than yours...I can adjust the volume via the remote....Maybe a learning remote will solve your problem...or you can call Pierre Gabriel in Montreal ....real a nice guy and very helpfull...I believe, He is the North American distributor.
My JD3 has volume control, even with an out board DAC. I agree it has a really cheap remote.
