Switching audio signals with relay
You must choose a small signal relay.... not a power relay. Why? Power relays have contact material made for switching larger currents which results in unreliable function at small currents.


If you choose a relay looking like the one at the picture you have a standard pin out.

Look for relays with current rating of 1-2 A. They are normally suited for small signals.
