Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: As JA himself has pointed out in speaker reviews...

What we need is a high quality amplifier switcher (not a speaker selector).

So you can run say four amplifiers to a switcher box - so when you want to listen to your 3 watt SET you can, then switch to your home theater amplifier when you want to use your 7.1 surround sound system, then you want to listen to your favorite EL34 Push Pull tube amplifier you can, and finally maybe your favorite 211 or 845 based tube amps or your 4000 watt Analog Domain amps.

For instance I have a home theater set-up via a Marantz receiver and a 12 watt tube amp. So when I want to play a movie or video game I have to disconnect the speaker wires and connect the speaker wires from the receiver and back and forth - it's not that big of a deal - but some folks may have speakers awkwardly positioned or use those ridiculously bulky connectors.

But Audiophiles are picky and we don't want some cheap $3 box muddying up the sound of such a connector box. There seems to be a market for this - a silver wired internal shielded blah blah blah box for $200. Someone will pay it. Me for one.
