    I'm looking for a multichannel audio switch, as I have two players.

    I don't want to pay an exorbitant amount of money, but I would like something that

    1) requires one button push (preferably on a remote)
    2) will not degrade the signal.

    To give some hint of my budget, here's my current setup.

    Onkyo 502 receiver.
    Sony SCD-2000ES
    Onkyo 971H
    Nothing more exotic than Radio Shack Gold interconnects.

    An ICBM would be nice, but I don't think they make them anymore.

    2 of something like this is the usual recommendation for an inexpensive solution

    2-way A/V switcher

    The usual recommendation, yes, but does it hold up?

    I think I've also seen some component switches that cram in stereo audio, an spdif, and component video-- which might work, assuming that the jacks are interchangeable.

    ICBMs don't switch 2 6 channel inputs. I called an asked them directly.
    The only device that does it is a Sony TAP 9000ES

    Great unit but $$$$

    Yep. I downloaded the manual to make sure. And the Sony is a bit beyond my resources. Oh well.
