You need what is known as an A-B switch for stereo speakers. Any Radio Shack, or stereo shop should have them.

It is not a good thing to put a signal into the output of a sound card. Been there, done that, replaced it.

Hello to all, sorry to be OT, but thought that these
lists might have someone that knows how to:

Combine the audio outputs of 2 different SuSE Linux
7.1 PCs into an amplified speaker system?
I have tried using a simple Y-adapter on the speaker
(Yamaha) input but this causes a lot of HUM and
seems to have burned out one sound card! Has anyone
done this?

Thanks to all ....................... PeterB
