8-Channel Speaker Selector
Spread your sounds around your home or business with this Monoprice 8-Channel Speaker Selector!
This speaker selector allows you to connect up to eight stereo speaker zones. Each zone can be individually toggled on or off with the front panel switch. Built-in impedance-matching circuitry ensures that the overall impedance level to the amplifier does not drop below 5 Ohms, no matter how many speaker zones are selected or how many speakers are in each zone.
The impedance-matching protection circuitry can be disabled using a front-panel button, but this should only be done if there is another protection circuit employed or the system is carefully designed to avoid amplifier damage. The unit can handle up to 100 watts per channel with the protection circuitry enabled and up to 200 watts per channel with the protection circuit disabled.

PROS: Very convenient, good size, great price
PROS: Price, Simple to install
PROS: Solid construction, easy to hook up,
CONS: None, for 30 dollars never expected this quailty
I ordered 2 more since then,
one for inside & outside the garage, and one sitting in a box waiting for me to set up a 2nd receiver system for in & outside the rest of the house.
Great item at a cheap price,
PROS: Does exactly what it should, distributes stereo sound to eight other sets of speakers in different areas of your house (eight zones). It is also a well constructed case. It is easy to set-up and you can use up to 14 awg speaker wires. It's completely quiet, and does not get hot.
CONS: Only two SMALL cons. The labels are tiny, but they work. Not a big deal. And I'd love to see this unit have independent volume control on each zone. But since this unit is so inexpensive, I don't mind not having this feature!
PROS: Quality look and feel. Easy setup no noise
CONS: none so far
PROS: No noise in switching. Distributes power nicely. Sturdy build.
PROS: Well made heavy guage metal case with easy to connect push in connectors for the 8 speakers. The switch operation is clean with no noise introduced.
CONS: The speaker switch labels provided are very small as designed to fit in a resess on each switch button. I made larger easier to read labels to stick on below each switch button.
PROS: I got exactly what I ordered and what was shown in the pictures. Products was great quality. Items where shipped in a timely manner and I was able to track my package every step of the way. The items were well priced and cheaper than anywhere else online. Any products I have looked to buy on this website have been cheaper than anywhere else you will find.
CONS: There is not any this website is very reputable and I highly recommend Monoprice
This device has 8 spk outputs from a 100Watts (protected) up to 200Watts RMS (no protection) with the protection switch on front.
Very satisfied with this device and on a budget price.
Wish I could spend some more money and go for the one with the volume controls as well but for now it's just great.
My personal opinion on MONOPRICE products is that it's a trustworthy US company where all devices are well made and there's still respect for their buyers.
I recommend MONOPRICE to professionals and amateurs on audio products.
PROS: This is my first speakers selector/spliter for my personal studio and rest of the house device.
CONS: Solid metal heavy construction device with good spring color connectors on the back and good touch switches on front.
