Hi,

Basically I want to look at 2 SpeakerLink sources going to 1 SpeakerLink out.
Say had 2 processors each with SpeakerLink, then dependent upon which was active it would output to DSP speakers. Thinking of G65 and 271+Atmos Processor. Then could have best of both. I assume you can't just use Gigabit network switch.

Thinking dealers might do something similar to demo 861 vs G65 etc.

Comments appreciated.

Kevin

Yes, with something like RJ45 Manual Network Switch - 2 Port.

This is a manual model but they do have RS232 and contact controlled versions. I use a manual version.

Here is a good product.

You have to manually select push button A or B, when no button is pushed there is no connection made.
The two inputs (in your application) are galvanic separated from each other.
The box include a PCB no free cables.

I will test it in the next days to compare 861 SL-out and 218 SL-out to my 8ks (not SE).

Thanks for this, Gives alternatives if I get 271 and G65 over G65 into analogue inputs of 271.
