Easy to switch quickly if you have banana plugs on your speaker wires.
Or, a simple ($25) stereo AB switch , two switches if you want test a center also. But testing two speakers in stereo should be sufficient - you'll hear how they sound in your room, the imaging, detail, dynamics, etc.
Re your receiver's room correction: If you receiver lets you save more than one configuration then you can use it. If your receiver can't save more than one config then make sure to test the speakers with the room correction turned off.
Also, be aware that if the speakers have different sensitivity the volume will need to be adjusted when you switch back and forth. (When I audition/compare speakers I use a more expensive AB switch that has separate volume controls for each set.)
