Default simple se with source selector

Love my simple se!!!
So does my brother. He wants me to build him one.

However, he wants a built in source selector. Sounds simple to me.

Only question I have is tying in the grounds to three input jacks.
Can I twist three rights together, three lefts together and screw them to the terminals on the board?
Can't see as this would be a problem, just thought I'd ask first.
Thanks, Paul

Yes.

I have built an amp with a switch. I ran a twisted pair from each input connector over to the switch. You can also use shielded audio cable or coax. I also ran another pair of twisted pairs from the input terminals over to the switch. The switch only works on the hot leads and all of the grounds are soldered together (8 wires) near the switch.

The boards were sent today from West Virginia. I bring a supply with me when travelling.

If that isn't fantastic service I don't know what is.
