The Zen Switch Box

S I L V E R  W I R E D

Audio is a game of hearing your gear sound only as good as the weakest link in the chain! This  box is guaranteed to not be the weak link in your audio chain, even with interconnects costing thousands of dollars.  The reason for this is simple.  High mass steel chassis, pure silver /Teflon wire, silver switch contacts and hand soldered point to point with silver solder. 

 4 INPUT ROTARY SOURCE SELECTOR WITH DUAL OUTPUTS
