Default Choosing and wiring selector for input jacks

Hi,

Need help with tubelab sse build. I have two pairs of input jacks. Do I need a rotary switch or just a toggle switch (dpdt). Pls advise the type of rotary switch should I get if this is advisable. Pls advise the wiring as well for both options. Thanks.

Default Input selector

I used a high quality rotary switch from Elma. They’re not cheap, but are very good quality. The number of poles can be adjusted.

Mine was purchased here (I think). Michael Percy Audio Ordering Information

Regards,
Charlie

For two inputs I just used a dpdt switch such as

100DP3T1B1M1QEH E-Switch | Switches | DigiKey

Good luck

Thanks for the reply. @colnago55, how do I wire using the toggle switch? Each pair of the jacks to the outer pins (side by side) and the middle pins go to the board?

I'm using a volume control, so the middle pins of the switch go to the input of the volume control which connects to the board. If you are not using a volume control then the middle pins would connect to inputs labeled 1 and 5 on the board. The right channel and the left channel of an input are side by side on the outer set of pins of the switch.
