RCA Phono Switch Box.
English

Can anybody recommend a good quality RCA Phono switch box? My Denon 720ae amplifier has one "Record Out" pair but I would like the option to record to both Cassette and Minidisc. I know you're all laughing in the cheap seats but I love my retro gear as much as my new stuff. Besides I especially like to copy new vinyl to both Cassette and Minidisc for archival purposes. I am also very much open to any other suggestions people may have.................when you've stopped laughing.  ROFL

Why not just daisy chain them?

Into cassette deeck, out to mini-disc, record on both simultaneously.

You dont need a switch box, the inputs on the cassette and minidisc will be high impedance and can be driven in parallel - all you need is a splitter.  Not suggesting that this is the one to go for (it does look a bit cheap and cheerful), but something along the lines of:

... will probably do.

You don't need them.

Daisy chain the two recorders as I described above. 

Zero cost, you probably have phono leads already.

If you are desperate to spend money on cables you don't need, send it to me. I shall invest it wisely down the pub...... Wink
