Default Selector Switch for BOZ

I would like to install a selector switch on my BOZ to select between 2 different inputs, a sacd player and a music streamer(squeezebox).
I think what I'm looking for is a 4P3T type rotary switch but I'm not
sure..

Could some body suggest something that I could use that's not
super pricey ??

Thanks...

How about just a toggle?

Will that do justice to my BOZ ??
I just thought that rotary switches would have better quality contact surfaces....

I've had good luck with the switches I've used, didn't seem to sound any different...and the B1 used a toggle

I've had good luck with the E-Switch 100DP3T4B1M1QEH (Digikey EG2417-ND) toggle switch.

I have settled on a Grayhill selector switch(because I have one onhand)

So when switching sources is it ok to just switch the signal wires?
I have all my grounds going to a "copper ground plane" and would like to leave them there and just switch the signal wires....
