Audio Switch

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Besides from getting a receiver, is there a cheaper device that would allow me to plug in multiple devices and allow me to select which device I want audio from?


So I would have my desktop & laptop plugged into the device via 3.5mm headphone jack and I could select which device is outputting audio to my speakers.

You can make your own switch

This used to be a popular choice http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826265015 but it's OOS

You could use an audio switch box, this isnt exactly what I was thinking, but it could be used with some rca to 1/8" adaptors or cables.


So you would plug your three input devices into the box, via an 1/8" to RCA cable, and then output the box to your speakers via an RCA to 1/8" cable.

You would need 4 of these if your using all 1/8" inputs. Dependent on how your speakers are setup.

That would actually work. I might consider that.
