My sense is that running a tiny signal through a switch might be an issue compared to running a large signal.  So, switching the TTs that way wouldn't be ideal.  I take it that your TT doesn't have a SME headshell that you could use to swap between Mono and Stereo carts?  Maybe just swapping the interconnects from TT to TT would be a better solution if you really need two TTs?

I just bought a used ZSB and I get a hum when I use it between my turntable and ZP3. I opened it up and it has resistors on the dual set of inputs. What is the difference between the low level version and the line level version?
