DIY speaker selector build ...

OK I have zero skills in the DIY arena sooo what I am asking is has anyone ever built a speaker selector box?? I currently use the best I could find which is made by Bryston BUT I wish the terminals were spaced farther apart for better speaker cables. The Bryston is the ONLY unit I could find that uses 5-way connectors vs the push button type which only allow use of bare wire.

IDEALLY would like a unit with:

output to 3 pairs of speakers
impedance matching circuit
high quality, 5 way speaker jacks
quality volume control (TDK, Alps, etc) for each pair of speakers
1/4" headphone jack

has to be built with enough space between jacks to allow use of heavy gauge speaker cables with spade or banana terminations ... this is the biggest drawback to the Bryston unit ... speaker/amp terminals are on top of each other in a "mini chassis" design

anyone built anything similar or know of a resource for a pre-built unit OR have the ability and desire to build one??
