You want volume control as well?

Not the cheapest but the Arduino LDR Source selector is pretty user friendly.

Otherwise- cobble together something from ePay- a relay source selector and alps motorized pot from China.

Did you do the search? Do you have some candidates already?
It can give us a hint at what you are aiming at.

Regards,

I have seen some $30 Chinese 2.1 channel speakers with remote and multi input selection. and these are working quite well . I want to understand -What hardware are they using to remote control inputs and volume.

If you're looking for something already built, there is a kit quite common on eBay. Look for something with "lite" in the name. About 40$ but the source selection doesn't work too smoothly.

If you want to roll your own, have a look at my thread in this forum. A preamp for the average guy or something like that. I might offer the PCB files at one point but not before testing... Probably not before October or so.

Well, you need a IR receiver, a micro controller (or something like an Arduino) to decode the signal and turn them into instructions, relays to switch the signal, a motorized pot to control volume and some electronics to interface the controller with these. And obviously a remote. And a power supply.
