    2-Channel A/B Speaker Selector w/ Volume Control

    Spread Your Music Everywhere.
    One of the most popular trends in Home Audio is whole house audio distribution.  Unfortunately, true multi-zone distribution systems are normally built into only the higher end receivers or require an expensive audio distribution network.  Monoprice brings everything within reach of the average homeowner by offering a wide selection of Home Audio Distribution accessories.
    A Key element of any home audio distribution system is a speaker selector.  The speaker selector allows you to distribute your source signals to several sets of speakers distributed throughout your home.  Additionally, a good speaker selector like our 2-channel A/B selector listed here, will allow you to have different source audio sent to different rooms so that someone in one room can be listening to something different in another room.  Most importantly, a speaker selector provides impedance matching, which ensures that the additional speakers do not overload or damage your amps.
    The Monoprice MSV-2 is a dual source 2 zone speaker selector with built in independent volume controls for each source.  This device can handle up to 100 watts per channel.  It supports a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz.  Accepts wire gauges up to 14AWG and maintains load at 8 Ohms.
    Installation is straight forward and simple.  This is part of making your dream sound system into a reality.

    2-Channel A/B Speaker Selector w/ Volume Control
    Received my 2-Channel A/B Speaker Selector w/ Volume Control today, shipped quick, hookup is straight forward if you know what your doing, if your a newbie to hooking up speaker cables and peripherals it might take you a bit longer, make sure the polarity is wired correctly (+ to + & - to -) check their website, maybe there's a video tutorial, anyway I digress the unit is outside under my covered patio, speakers are located by the pool & under the covered patio, I temporarily hooked it up so I could give it a Q/A test run, speakers have a minimal loss of power to either zone, discovered no audio clipping between zones, seems solid, I'm hoping it makes it through an Arizona summer!
    I would've given a score of 10, but the bent volume stem drops it to an 8.

    PROS: Compact design, volume "click" positioning knobs, no power required to operate.

    CONS: None, other than a bent volume stem, and that's only a cosmetic issue.

    Works as advertised. Excellent solid construction that blends in well with a high-end system.

    CONS: No holes for wall mounting. Modded the case (drilled) and hung it up, works great.

    Love these speaker switches/selectors, even with noted cons, although the connection points could certainly be larger to get a 10 rating. I have been looking for reasonable priced high-power selectors for quite a while to match up to a 120 watts/channel high-current power supply and speakers in three rooms, and these throw in channel volume controls to boot! No clipping so far, or loss of signal power that I can discern. I like 'em!

    PROS: -Ability to handle high power loads with no impedance problems over long speaker-cable runs

    -Solid, heavy construction

    -Individual channel volume controls and speaker selection switches

    CONS: -Really tiny, wee connection points, with no room between them. Even the most slender banana plugs will seem crowded here

    -It would be better if channel volume controls were continuous rather than gradated, but I understand the non-continuous keep the price low

    -A little bit large, but a minor complaint

    Great controller, does what I hoped for. I used one input and output to two zones. It allows me to control volume at each zone independently.

    PROS: Small design, Sturdy case, great price.

    CONS: Small speaker wire inserts,

    I liked it so much that I returned it and bought the 4-channel version
    Easy to install, simple user interface. I had three speaker pairs with the 2-channel version of this device, I could support all three but with a confusing tree of buttons to push to choose among them. I bought the 4-channel version instead, so now I select among the pairs with the same simple button-and-knob arrangement for each output.

    PROS: Does just what it says.

    Better than expected
    I bought this to add a third zone to a two zone Onkyo TX-8255 receiver, initially I dropped one of the zones and added an old pair of speakers to zone two, but I had no way of controlling the volume between the two. I had one pair at 6 ohm and one at 8 ohm, the sound just wasn't balanced. Adding this little box immediately matched the sound, I assume that there is impedance matching built in, but I am not sure. I now have two rooms powered by one zone, and the sound is great between them, I haven't even changed the volume between the two!

    Speaker Selector w/ Individual Volume Controls
    A very difficult to locate analog speaker selector WITH volume controls. Monoprice always has the best of the hard to locate products at the lowest price available. Works perfectly! Thanks.

    PROS: Very fast service. Very good price with free shipping AND a $10 off code! WOW!

    The same products I purchased here were priced much higher elsewhere be it on line or at one of the big box stores. Don't know how you do it.

    PROS: Great selection. Great prices. What else can I say? I am a highly satisfied customer.

    CONS: None I can think of.

    Slick little box
    Used this to integrate Dolby Atmos ceiling speakers into my HT without simply disconnecting my existing wide-front channel speakers. With this box I can use both sets of speakers or one or the other.

    PROS: Solid heavy construction

    CONS: Itty-bitty wire connectors

    Can't beat it for the price

    PROS: Well built and it works great... I really don't think you can be it for the price. It looks nice too.
