QED provides a range of products for improving flexibility of Hi-Fi and Home Cinema set-ups. In this case, QED has provided with a small box that is capable providing an amplifier with a further auxiliary input. For example, you might have an i-Pod dock and a CD player both requiring input on the amplifier when there is only one input left that is free. The QED IX20 allows you to plug in both of these components, and the IX20 will act as a switch between them. The output of the QED IX20 2-Way Input Expander is then connected to the single, free auxiliary jack that is on the rear of the amplifier. This little unit solves the dilemma of lack of auxiliary inputs on an amplifier by acting as a switch between the two outputs of two separate pieces of audio equipment.
Gold plated connectors ensure a good contact is established between phono cable and audio components.
The SS20 way parallel speaker switch by QED allows you to switch between two pairs of speakers (in parallel) for total flexibility and control. if you need to use your amplifier on full power for a louder sound delivery, you can simply switch on your second pair of speakers for that extra wow factor.
THe QED SS21 2-Way Audiophile Parallel Speaker Switch allows you to switch between two pairs of speakers form a speaker amplifier to enhance your ultimate set up.
This QED SS30 3 way speaker switch connects and switches 3 pairs of speakers from one stereo amplifier. This switch uses a combination of series and parallel wiring inside to ensure that when 8 Ohm speakers are connected, the impedance never drops below 4 Ohms at the amplifier.
This QED SS40 4 way speaker switch connects and switches 4 pairs of speakers from one stereo amplifier. This switch uses a combination of series and parallel wiring inside to ensure that when 8 Ohm speakers are connected, the impedance never drops below 4 Ohms at the amplifier.
The QED SS50 5 way speaker switch allows you to connect and switch up to 5 pairs of speakers from one stereo amplifier. This new push button version of the popular Transmatch has a unique impedence matching design, that converts a net 2 Ohm load back to a safe 4 Ohm load to protect your amplifier. The QED SS50 product ensures that you are able to use up to five pairs of speakers in series from the same stereo amplifier to cater for your audio needs.
QED wall mounted speaker sockets WM07 for phono plug connections eg Tech+Link 2 phono to 2 phono cable.
This QED WM07 twin pair of phono sockets is ideal for where you want to send line level audio, ie NON amplified audio, from one location to another. For example if you have a stereo audio device eg a CD player and you want to send the sound to an amplifier eg a multiroom controller amp such as the Russound CAS44K or Sonos ZP120 Zone Player, through cables embedded in the wall. Note that the length of such embedded cable should be no greater than 20 metres. Beyond this distance we would suggest using the MuxLab stereo audio baluns. Both of these are balun systems using Category 5e cable.
The QED WM15 two-way parallel speaker switch allows you to connect and switch two pairs of speakers in parallel from one amplifier. Parallel switching ensures best quality, but be careful as two pairs of speakers at 8 Ohm will lower the impedence to 4 Ohms. Check that your amplifier can handle this, before using.
The power handling of the WM15 is 150 Watts RMS. The WM15 is suitable for use with the WM14 volume control.
The QED WM17 two-way series speaker switch allows you to connect and switch two pairs of speakers in series from one amplifier. Series switching ensures that the load to your amplifier does not fall below 8 Ohms when using 8 Ohms speakers. This way you protect your amplifier, but the volume level will drop when both pairs of speakers are playing because the impedence (resistance) will rise to 16 Ohms instead of the normal 8 Ohms.
The Russound SS-6.2 speaker selectors permit either four or six pair of speakers to be turned on and off through individual switches on the front panel, it also provides overload protection and long-term reliability.
Multiple pairs may be engaged simultaneously if desired. When multiple pairs are engaged, impedance matching protection must be employed to protect the amplifier from damage.The SS-6.2 have this impedance matching protection built in, when selected by the Impedance switch on the rear panel.
The versatile Russound AB-2.2 selector switch allows you to power a single pair of speakers with either of two amplifiers or power either of two speaker pairs with a single amplifier. Easy to install and simple to use, it’s ideal for situations where you need a local source, such as stereo receiver, to share a pair of room speakers with your whole-house audio system.
The AB-2.2 sits conveniently on a shelf or tabletop near your audio equipment.
This Russound AB1.2 two-way selector switch allows you to connect and switch between two pairs of speakers from one amplifier or to switch between two alternative amplifiers into one pair of speakers.
The power handling of the Russound AB1.2 is 150 Watts per channel RMS.
This new Russound AB-3.2 automatic A/B selector switch is designed to provide automatic switching of two amplified audio sources to a single set of speakers. For example, connect the speaker output of a TV, the speaker output of a stereo receiver, and a pair of speakers to the AB-3.2. The “AMP B” input has priority when both audio signals are present. If you are listening to the stereo on the “AMP A” input, then turn on the TV, connected to the “AMP B” input, the AB-3.2 will disconnect the stereo and allow the TV to play through the speakers
In some multiroom arrangements it may be necessary to supplement a multiroom controller/amplifier in certain zones with a more powerful amplification system. Many mulitroom controller amps either have only a single line level output, eg Russound CAA66 or do not have a line level-out at all, eg Russound CAS44, to enable the addition of a power amp to achieve this.

The Russound EZB-1SC speaker connecting block provides an easy and convenient way to connect up to four pairs of speakers to one stereo amplifier or power amp. Its compact size, removable connectors, and expandability make it a must-have when paralleling multiple speaker pairs.
The Russound SDB-6.1 is a highly efficient dual-source 2×6 matrix speaker selector that controls up to six pairs of speakers. The front panel provides a separate volume control for each speaker pair, allowing you to adjust the volume in each room from one convenient location.
The Russound SRM2.1 Speaker Relay Module is a two-way speaker switch that allows two amplifiers to share the same pair of speakers with the switching done by a 12 Volt (12V) DC trigger. This allows you to share speakers in situations where both amplifiers are permanently on (ie cannot be switched by audio sensing as with the Russound AB3.2) or to share them with specific Russound systems such as the Russound MCA-C5.
The Russound SS-4.2 speaker selectors permit either four or six pair of speakers to be turned on and off through individual switches on the front panel, it also provides overload protection and long-term reliability.
Multiple pairs may be engaged simultaneously if desired. When multiple pairs are engaged, impedance matching protection must be employed to protect the amplifier from damage. The SS-4.2 have this impedance matching protection built in, when selected by the Impedance switch on the rear panel.
The Sonance AL2 automatically switches between two line level stereo sources eg a radio tuner and an iPod dock with the output going to an amplifier. The main source, say the radio, is connected to the Input A jacks and the secondary remote source, say the iPod dock, is connected to the Input B jacks. The output is connected to the amplifier.
