Rotary switches are available from almost any electronics supplier. Quality may vary, of course. What is it that you can't find?

Ok so i found 2 on parts express, 2 pole 6 position.
to make an input switcher would i use shorting or non shorting.
just a dead simple line level rca switchbox for the input on my i12.

I assume 'shorting' means Make Before Break (MBB), and 'non-shorting' means Break Before Make (BBM) - some of these terms vary around the world. For an input selector you want non-shorting or BBM. Most switches are of this type. Using the wrong type probably won't do any harm, provided all your sources are well-engineered and can cope with a brief short circuit.

Most rotary switches have an adjustable 'stop', so you could buy a 2-pole 6-way and set it to do 2-pole 3-way. You may have to be careful to set the stop at the right end, otherwise your knob might not line up with your panel markings.

Ok that makes sense.

So im seeing dead simple as 4 pair input rca's and one pair output rca.
The input selector knob mounted on a front panel and the rcas on a rear panel.
Perhaps some ofc 24guage copper wire in between.
Bob's your uncle?

Yaks wool is no good as a dielectric, as it becomes lossy above 5kHz.
