Good quality speaker switch for the money,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Monster Cable SS4 Multi-Speaker Selector (Electronics)
Monster Cable products have always had a reputable name and I was rather surprised to find a multi-speaker selector switch in this price class with the Monster brand name affixed to it. This particular switch has the typical multi-pair on/off switches and the load switch, to (help) prevent damage to a smaller amplifier when presented with a low-impedance load resulting from multiple pairs of speakers. The switches have a nice detent feel and the case is all metal except for the front facia. Audiophiles may not care for the fact that this uses spring-loaded push terminals for cable interfacing; however, it is what it is - either twist bare ends of wires together and guide them into the terminal openings or buy post-style terminations. I used this switch to turn on/off zoned speaker pairs and went with an infrared remote repeater so the receiver remote control could be used in the alternate room. No complaints about functionality or sound quality. I'm giving this a four star out of five because it would be nice to include five-way binding posts on a switch like this; however, adding this type of terminations would undoubtedly drive up the price...maybe we should quit while we're ahead!
