Connecting both PC and Xbox 360 to desktop amp

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi. I like to keep both of my gaming setups (PC and Xbox 360) in one place, on my desk. Then I can easily switch between the two. Would using an A/V switcher be the best way to plug both audio sources into my desktop amp? I have my PC currently running into my Bifrost via optical TOSLINK. And then Bifrost to Asgard via RCA. If I were to put the Astro Mixamp into the equation coming from the Xbox 360, could I plug the Astro Mixamp and the Bifrost into an A/V RCA switch box and then switcher running out to the Asgard 2? Would this negatively affect the quality? I bought the fancy Schiit PYST CABLES so that was my only concern.

 

Thanks in advance!

You can use an analog audio switch box to switch audio between the Xbox/Astro and the PC/Bifrost.

Here is a switch box for $9.
