    ...to the ever increasing problem of two 5.1 devices (SACD and DVD-A) and one set of preamp inputs? I know many use two of R.S.'s A/V switchboxes together as a solution. It seems cost effective, but somehow not ideal. any other ideas?

    Gary, perhaps a more convenient solution is the Sony TA-P9000ES multi-channel analog pre-amp or a receiver with two sets of multi-channel inputs. Oade Bros. sells the 'P9000ES for around $450. The only receivers I am aware of at present that have two sets of multi-channel inputs are the Sony STR-DB1070, 'DA3ES, and 'DA5ES and the Denon AVR-5803. Obviously, the Radio Shack switch boxes are much cheaper than any of these solutions. I use the Radio Shack switch boxes, and they work perfectly. It is true that I have to get up to switch the boxes when I want to switch sources, but these boxes were only $30. For a mere $30, I can live with this "inconvenience". [​IMG]
