looking for a quality stereo RCA audio input switch

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've got a decent Adcom preamp that's run out of inputs for all the sources I want to connect to it. For a while I've been using an inexpensive Radio Shack RCA input switch to extend one of the preamp inputs but I'm concerned about the quality of this switch and it's effect on the audio. Does someone make a high quality switch with at least 3 RCA stereo inputs and one RCA stereo output?

What's it doing to the audio signal?

It's a pretty cheap switch with inexpensive RCA connectors. This has me concerned that the signal may, and I repeat, may be degraded somewhat through this switch however I do not know this for a fact. Because I'm paranoid I was hoping that someone made one with higher quality components.

Try Zektor. I have several of their switches and found them to be quite transparent.

Thanks for the tip but as far as I can tell they don't offer a simple audio switch. All the switches involve video and some form of remote control. I'm hoping to find something that is purely audio and straightforward.

If it's a passive switch, it's likely to pass a cleaner signal then an electronic switch...and you haven't noticed any degradation.

I know this is an old thread, but my Google search pointed me to it when searching for a suitable product. The OP needed the same thing I did, but the thread was not as helpful as it could have been. After looking around some more, I found what may be an excellent option for others with the same need.

Hopefully this will save others some time.
