And honestly, to start out with, go to a local store and find a decent looking cable that's put together. I got a 6' RCA cable (made by GE) that looks really nice, and is constructed very well for about $13. Looks about 2-3 times thicker than that cable, too.
A simple switch, like this ... should do the job
But... one comment states that there will be a signal loss if you have more than 1 input ... which sounds a bit strange since it can have up to 5
For the moment i am waiting for the A2 (from schiit.com) and the necessary cables (from amazon.com)... and i will try the front audio jack.
If my ears will sence some distorsions... i will try alternative audio routes
