Does anyone know how to make an audio switch to take 1 input and have it switchable between 2 (or more) outputs? I've seen plans to take 2 inputs and switch between them to a single output, but not the other way around.

Thanks, I'll give it a try and see what happens.
 
I bought some parts today, but there are a couple more that I need to get before I can go ahead with this project.  I'm making some on-the-fly mods (adding a LED so I can see when one of the channels is active), so I hope it will work.  Wiring looks simple enough, though.

You could also use AXIOM signal relays, I have used them as delays for tube warmup times so the headphones dont get damaged and they have not deteriorated the sound. This way you only need a simple one pole rotary selector to as many relays you want.
