I am building a custom home and the client has requested a volume control in each room that has buttons for volume up and down and also can be controlled by remote. He does not want to use a twist knob if possible. Anyone know of a maunfacturer of this type?

I don't know of any manufacturer that makes what you are asking for. (Though that doesn't mean it doesn't exist)

What you're talking about, to my knowledge, can only be done with a keypad or touchscreen.

How many rooms will have distributed audio?

How many zones? Subzones?

The new Niles "Gloria" might be a thought.
It is a 4 source, 6 zone distributed audio system with a built-in tuner and 6 keypads which retails for $3000 without installation.

Check out their website for more info.

Kinda like the niles piece, the Russound 6.4 works very well, has a choice of basic keypad,and a numeric keypad
(use both if you have a multi disc cd, or sat)
does not come with a tuner, just keypads and controller/amp 6 zones 4 sources (6.4)
Not sure of the price, I just install then I dont sell them.
Have installed several,works great.

If you only want to control volume (without knobs), Niles Audio and Xantech both make remote-controlled volume controls. As others have mentioned, there are many other options also...

Sounds like your customer is refering to the Russound ABus product. You can get all the details at their site

You can also check out audio acess no knobs just a keypad and remote capable. Has been very reliable on our end. Hope this helps.
