I'm really new to working with electrical components, so please bare with me here...
I'd like to make a sound distributor with 3.5mm audio jacks, so for example the pc outputs an audio signal and the distributor has say 5 jacks where headphones/speakers/second speakers etc. are connected. Every jack should have a switch to manually cut the connection of each of those 5 signals. Does it sound the same (or at all) if I just split the output cable to 5 and if not, how should I go about mastering this task?
I don't want to buy anything to experiment with to then find out half of it isn't necessary.
thanks a lot!
