Instead of using separate binding posts for 4, 8, and 16 ohm outputs (TFA-204), can I use a switch? I guess it would be SP3T, right? If so, what voltage/current specs do I need?
Thanks,
Pete

Using ohm's law... you should be able to figure out the current of the four ohm tap with the power rating of your amplifier...

I know several builders have used switching arrangements to accomadate the various secondary impedances available. Hopefully if they read your post they can make some recommendations or provide some practical guidance.

best of,
