    I plan on getting the Outlaw 1050 receiver. However it doesn't have a Main speaker A/B switch. I have two sets of speakers for Mains, one set that matches my center and surrounds, and one set for music. I don't plan on running both speakers simultaneously. Is there a speaker switch box available for this task?

    I have a Niles SPS-4, which works great. I bypass my AB switch and use this to run sound to different sets of speakers for different purposes. I know this unit is available in a 6 set splitter, it may be available in other configurations as well.

    I have a Niles too, and it does work great, but the attachments to it are for very small gauge speaker wire. I think of the Niles for use to drive in-wall and in-ceiling speakers around the house, not for main-speaker use.

    If there are spearate speakers for movies vs. music, this sounds like a critical installation to me, and I'm not sure the Niles in the middle is a good idea. Possibly there are higher-end switchers.
