Default Use relays to control input channels

I'm making a gainclone, which only have one input source. I'm thinking about controlling the amplifier with an Arduino (a microcontroller), that can control the heatsink temp, turn fan on or off if necessary. I will also make it compatible with IR remotes. But yes, back to the question. I'm going to make four diffrent audio inputs. one for cd, one for AUX, one for LP and one for Radio. can i use relays for controlling inputs, like my fancy little schematic shows? Will this affect the music quality?

You can and probably it is the best way to do it, considering you're using a good type of relais
