I’m sure someone out here has solved this.. I’m wondering what people use when they want a high quality stereo experience (I’m thinking something vintage and maybe tubes) in addition to their basic HT AVR.

 

is there a HIGH QUALITY switch or something that some use? Something that won’t degrade the sounds.. Anything other than swapping out cables all the time?

 

Thanks in advance & happy holidays,

PS - Anyone have actual experience with this one?

Why don't you give it a try en then let us know? Seems pretty robust. 

 

You could wait until Macintosh puts their label on it and asks $1,640 for it...

Would a 2 channel tube amp change the game in the equation with a switch system — like the speaker selector switch? I had read that it does, in that not having a load on a tube amp is a big no-no. Maybe the switches mentioned take that into account. Personally, I have an AVR and tube amp, but switch the cables back and forth (banana plugs and to me no big deal), but in some circumstances it may be difficult to get to the backs of the speakers. Another option would be an amp with a home theater bypass.

The device linked does NOT take into account that you will have no load on a tube type amp when the other amp is switched into the speaker. If that is what are switching. you must turn off the tube amp when listening to the other connected SS amp or AVR.
