View Full Version : Two amps -> One pair of speakers - High End switcher
16-07-2004, 02:32 PM
I need to build an High End Switcher to be used with my two amps and one pair of speakers.
I wouldn't like to use one of the awful products over the market; I'd like to build an audiophile one not to have any loss in music reproduction.
Which components do you suggest me to use?

I could do with a balanced one of these :)~:-)~:smile:

sorry, should engage brain, I also feed two amps to a single speaker so could do with this as well but I haven't found a suitable bunch of 'audiophile componenets', thereofore I am looking to switch the signal earlier, compromise and use one amp (with two feedimg systems) and therefore need to switch balanced signal. I have an 'audiophile unbalanced' swither to do this but now want balanced.
This might not be very easy to do as you want, I never mastered it, so I am interested to know how :)~:-)~:smile:

Are you using 2 integrated amps or 2 power amps or one of each? In my case I run both my front AV channels and Hi-Fi through the same speakers. This is a compromise as in fact I don't use onboard amplification for my AV amp front channels, just take a pre-out and feed it into a tape loop on my integrated stereo amp. This allows me to retain a 'purist' Hi-Fi set up whilst still running my AV system through the same speakers.
This won't be appropriate for Nic but could the same approach work for your situation Luca?

Thanks guys but my problem is a little different.
I use two final amplifiers and I'd like to build a box with 3 pairs of biding posts (2 from the two ampli and 1 to the pair of spekaers).
Now my only doubt is what to use (that could be considered audiophile) to switch among thes bindin posts.
I thought a motorized commuter selector but I have to find a capable one.
