Can a speaker be connected to 2 separate input sources? I want to connect an older 2ch receiver to my speakers as well as a network AVR. The speakers have bridged binding posts. Of course I wont run each source at the same time...just want to know if the speakers will suffer any signal degradation - or potential damage - because of being connected to the additional pair of speaker wire pairs at the same time.

Not a good idea, use a speaker selector switch. Even with one source "off" you will be backfeeding speaker level voltage into it from the other source without the switch
