Analog audio switcher
I am building a simple analog audio switch device. Everything is working great, no noise. Here is the problem:
I have two output channels as described in the picture and one input. I also drew how I connected the phono RCA connectors and my switch.
With a DPDT toggle switch i switch between two output channels.
1.I connect a audio source in to the input of my switching device.
2.I connect an Amplifier and speakers on Output Channel 1.
3. I connect a headPreamp on Output Channel 2
So i Turn the switch so that i Hear channel 1.
I dont turn on the amp so there is no music coming out.
I put my head phones on and I hear music from channel 1, but my head phones are connected to channel 2.
I also connected all the grounds together including the aluminum casing.
So where is the problem?
do you have any ideas?
Is the problem in the DPDT switch? Or how I connect the grounds together?

possibly a misinterpretation of switch position:
Toggle Switches, Rocker Switches, LCD Programmable Switches, Subminiature Switches, Slide Switches, Surface Mount Switches, Programmable Switches, Pushbutton Switches, Miniature Toggle Switches, Tactile Switches
or the amplifier has a high enough impedance to pick up the signal.
or all of the grounds are not connected.
or something else I haven't thought of.

In your sketch, toggle up connects to the lower contact set.....
