This is more of a consumer question, so admin feel free to delete. I have a 1978 Marantz receiver. I want to hook up multiple audio sources, but have them all go into the same input on the Marantz. I have found passive switchers, but they all also are for video. I guess I could use them, but is there an audio only version of such a thing? What search words would I use to find them? Or do you have suggestions on a good one? Thanks!

Hello Tom and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

Would something like this work for you?

Yes, that would work, but it is literally ten times the price of an unpowered switch box that does audio and video that I have found on Amazon. For my consumer needs, this might be more than I need.

Hi Tom,

You've found a 5x1 stereo audio/video switcher for under $24?

Impressive!

What is it?

Here is one. There are probably several more options.

Recording audio without metering and monitoring is exactly like framing and focusing without looking at the viewfinder.

This is not a "race for the bottom". 😉
It is an example of that valuable axiom posited by a reviewer over on GearSlutz, one of my favorite tech quotations:

"A $200 cable is better than a $2 cable. But it is not better than a $5 cable."

There is no doubt that the features of the $240 Kramer switcher are essential for many installations. The remote-control and system network features being the most notable.
But for simple stereo line-level input selection, the Kramer box will provide no extra value over the cheap-n-cheerful solutions. KISS. I believe in spending my budget where it will have the most benefit.
