The three switches on the front are the push type, which spring back out when another button is pushed in. This is a passive electronic device, which should therefore introduce no additional noise or harmonic distortion into your system. It also requires no power cabling, for the same reason. It is fairly light in the hand, but solid on its four pads, and is discreet enough in its design not to draw too much attention to itself.
In operation this is beyond whisper-quiet -- it is absolutely noiseless, even with recording studio Genelec 1031A monitors turned right up -- something which would be quite deafening with a signal coming through. However, pressing the switches produces an audible 'clunk' as they change over, similar to the clunk you got on older hifi units before the days of transistor switching. To a large extent, this is an inevitable consequence of a fully passive design: the alternative, an active electronic solution, would require power and would most probably introduce some noise into the signal chain.
The other downside is that, as with all passive switching devices, the contacts will eventually become dirty, making the switching more crackly. Cleaning is not difficult -- you just need to unscrew the bottom and use some Contact Cleaner.Read more ›
I bought this to connect multiple inputs (turntable, FM-tuner, cassette deck) to my external USB soundcard for recording on my PC with Audacity - and I did not want to be continually re-plugging RCA connectors.
I ran a series of bench tests using Audacity to amplify to ridiculous amounts to compare with and without the switch. And I have to absolutely agree with reviewer Martin Turner that "In operation this is beyond whisper quiet ..." At real-life levels I cannot hear any "noise" from the switch at all.
Well worth the money - an excellent pice of kit that "does what it says on the tin"
This thing works fantastically well. You press the button it selects the audio source. Bam. It's well built, rugged, clearly not going to fall apart with use any time soon. I did have a little issue of some buzzing when I first set it up, but I think it was more because I had allowed the phono cable connectors to touch other cables. Once I unplugged it and re-set it up, the sound became clear.
It kills me that a cheap device such as this does a better job than an expensive, fancy, HDMI matrix. My only wish was that there was a 2-button version of this, as for my use case it'll never have a 3rd source, and because there's no backlight, it's easy to press button 3 instead of button 2 in the dark.
Currently the company supplies an equivalent-quality 4-switch item because they are out of stock of the listed item (they have not updated the stock indicator). They expect to get have no stock for a period of months.
The alternative item is OK, but I would have liked to have known this before they shipped it to me.
Guess from their point of view it makes good business sense!
