I've been searching for a device that simple allows me to pick one input and one output from multiple input/outputs. I thought this would be a called a switch but I can only find ones with one input. Is there such a device that can do this?

I will be attaching various devices, i.e. multiple console sound, PC & Laptop inputs and outputting to my speakers or headphones. I'm looking for something small and simple.

All inputs and outputs are 3.5mm.

If you can get your hands on some 3.5mm male to 2 RCA male cables, you could get a stereo source selector like this one.

I have a similar source selector meant for attaching 4 tape decks to a single receiver. I still use it on occasion to avoid rewiring when switching between many devices in my system.


Mackie's HMX-56 headphone matrix mixer could do the job — it takes 4 inputs and provides 6 individually-mixed outputs.
