    I've got several component sources I would like to hook up to my 24" Wega. However, I don't want to suffer any noticable loss in image quality. I've seen these cheap switcher boxes for $20-40. My question is this:


    If I buy a rather inexpensive switcher box will I likely notice any loss in image quality? Keep in mind that my tv is non progressive. Thanks.

    Greetings

    Component switchers are in the $150 to $200 range. Not in the price range you are looking at.

    There are cheap recoton 4 to 1 units for about $30 to $40 though. Degradation is inconsequential given your size of display.

    regards

    If you want zero deleterious effects, you need to investigate products from companies such as Extron or Key Digital. As a rule of thumb, you would want buffered outputs and bandwidth at least 10 times the highest frequency that you are intending to pass to avoid clipping.
