IE1 RCA Audiophile Switchbox

This Input Expander is a passive RCA switch box that allows connection of 6 components to your preamplifier. Featuring discrete switching, this audiophile device switches both the positive and negative of the signal.  Most RCA switch boxes use a common ground (connecting all your tape recorders or components together) which has the potential to create a ground loop, often resulting in a low frequency hum or other noise. We’ve also heard of a more extreme example of why best not to do this, where one component that became defective, sent voltage through the RCA line, causing other components in the system to fail. The more devices you connect, the greater the likelihood of ground loops. Many audiophile components use Elma 1264 switches but in this case we are using a higher end Elma, which is five times more expensive.

Designed primarily for playback purposes, this RCA Input Expander could also be used for the recording section designating the Record out signal to your various tape recorders. Many more applications listed below.

We spared no expense in designing this using a high grade Elma six position switch and Vampire RCA’s with high-grade wiring that completes the package. Minor sound degradation from the original source signal can be found on test equipment but sounds undetectable based on many tests we have done.
