RE: Question about A/B tests - switching equipment

A simple A/B switch box will do the job. "Send it here, send it there". However, your larger issue is to match levels on both amps. Even a half dB difference will make one sound better than the other. I'd suggest using a test record/CD and a good SPL meter to match the levels at, say, 1000 Hz, at the exact position where you'll be listening.

Beyond that, there is the issue of speaker placement, since two pairs of speakers can't be in the same place at the same time, and we all know how some audiophiles can be when it comes to an inch or two of placement differences. ;)
