Default B1 wiring Help?

Do You guys know if I can hook B1 up without using the input switch
selector,would it be a matter of going straight from RCA jacks
to volume pot then to input of left and right on board.

Is that what you expect?

A friend built a B1 and had some problems with the (admittedly cheap) input selector switch. He only has a single source anyway, so I advised him to bypass the switch and wire it directly. The rest is exactly standard as per the published design. He is now very pleased with it.

Avoiding unnecesary contact points, like switches, always brings improvements. And you reduce future spots that are going to fail with use, switches don't last infinite.

So if I avoid the the 6 input switch contacts,and also the volume
pot hookups that come off of switch input,I can just leave them unused
and it still goes thru all stages of buffer, is that correct.
