Double duty 2 channel and 5.2. A different take
01/07/22 at 20:13:12
 
I have a separate Oppo (103) that will be used by itself plugged into the Decware , and will be swapping out speaker cables between listening sessions. I was looking for a speaker cable switcher, and I cannot find any manual ones that look like nice quality. Staying clear of powered ones. So instead, I will be looking for a 3 foot long (custom?) pair of pigtails, banana male to female. to use on our right speaker. Or maybe even both. It's a sob to get behind that one with my old bod and having lost much of my left hand/left side. Any place I should look? Attached image is sort of what I'm looking for but at least 2 feet long and of good quality. Thank you~Mike

Actually that would work. Didn't think of just using another binding post. Banana into back of speaker, bare wire end soldered to back of those posts. Lin is that a decent quality? I surely appreciate your reply!...On the look now! ~Mike

Mike, I know I'm late to the discussion but I am using my Dec amp and my front speakers for home theatre without swapping out cables.  I worry that any cable switch adds an opportunity to degrade the sound.  

I have a Rachel amp with 2 inputs.  I turn it all the way up and use it as an amp.  For 2 channel sound I use my preamp (built into my DAC) to control sound level.  For HT, my HT reciever is the preamp.  All I have to do to switch to home theatre is to change inputs.  

added bonus is that on each system I have a remote to control volume.

Hope your system works great and sounds awesome.

Jerry

I am sorry Jerry, I just ran across your reply here. I hit another speed bump a few days right before you posted in April. Love this getting older bit... Smiley  I am looking into maybe adding the one of two HT subs into the Decware, but that will be determined after receiving and listening for a while first. Your way surely seems simple enough, but I am thinking to keep the Decware completely separate of the HT receiver setup. I was once a rocket scientist before my last (2nd) trip to ICU vacation land, so don't want to switch on something with the Decware that shouldn't be on at the same time as our oppo only source. I tend to make more mistakes these days. I have a few months more to go to get my head wrapped around the best way to go for me. You're awesome Jerry. All the best and Thank You  ~Mike
