I wish the power off button on the remote only required that it be pressed (alone) to turn the power off on the Altair. At first, I was going crazy trying to turn the device off from across the room. I finally realized that, unlike every other audio device I own or have used (that’s a bunch), it requires that the power off button be pressed and then the OK button to confirm the command. My Aries G1 does not require anything but a single button press to turn it off.
You can press and hold the power button of remote control, it will confirm directly then power off the unit. Such design is to prevent accidental operation.
