If you're content with that, then the switch itself is a pleasure. Fits perfectly into any decora wall plate, and handles my 2x120-watt amp perfectly.
When installed, it works well. The buttons have a solid feel to them and I like that you can press either, both, or none to deliver power to your "A" and "B" speakers. I installed this in my garage to switch between the speakers there and the ones on my back deck. Does all that I ask of it!
Also consider buying a volume control for the "input" side of this switch. Very convenient to be able to attenuate the volume to suit your needs. I installed a volume box right next to this one.
The speaker wires are supposed to be attached by putting them into a small hole and then tightening a screw so that there is a pressure fit. I got it so that I thought there was a tight fit but after putting in a few more wires into their holes one would invariably come out. It became very frustrating!
This is the same unreliable technique that Radio Shack pushed and I guess part of the reason they went bankrupt after people no longer trusted them.
Fortunately, there was a set of solder lugs on both sides (A & B) of the switch. I suspect these were put there for an OEM customer who would not put up with the unreliable screw connection method. I checked out the logic by viewing the traces on the board (confirmed with an Ohmmeter) and soldered flying leads to the lugs. This worked perfectly.
Also the external switch plate is attached to the switch by small (non-standard) sheet metal screws. What do you do if you ever lose a screw?
I use the switch to switch between a set of indoor and outdoor speakers.
