Default input selector switches

Does anybody know where to buy high quality input selector switches? They would be for a small project- to add to the total number of inputs for my stereo. Also, would the switch impact the sound of the system in any way? TIA

Dave

What kind of switches are you talking about??
And how will it be connected to your existing input selector?

ELMA makes some good rotary switches, where you easily can add 6 stereo inputs to your existing input.

All components in the signal path will have some influence on the sound. Try checking out the Electronics and Parts forum, or make a search for "Input Selector"

Hi ACD,
I don't believe Elma is good:

I got my Electroswitches from www.alliedelec.com and the Shallco from Michael Percy.

I have a few mil spec selector switches which would do the job nicely. $10 + $4 shipping. If you're interested, I'll dig them up and give you some more info.
