LOL, I like that its explained how to use it as a switch and volume knob... separately hahaha

Since it's passive, I'm wondering if it's possible to use it in reverse, so 1 in and 2 out. I have a feeling it might be.

post #4886 of 7175

I have an email in to Shiit asking that very same question. I'll post an answer as soon as I have one.

post #4887 of 7175

The reply I received is "Nope, unfortunately not. There's only one set of input jacks."

 

Other passive switching boxes I've used can be used either way, just like any cable. Maybe the volume pot has something to do with it? We'll have to try it once we receive them.

post #4888 of 7175

This is the reply I got:

 

"I guess you could use it backwards with the volume pot all the way up as just a switch. But why not just use RCA Y-cables?"

 

Seems like there are different opinions on the matter.

post #4889 of 7175

I think what Schiit is saying that you can not drive two outputs at once. Most of the RCA switch boxes that I have seen with two outs means that it will drive two outputs at the same time.

post #4890 of 7175

It's not "driving" anything, it's passive. Will have to just wait and try it.
