Comments about 3x5 Component Video + Stereo Audio + TOSLINK® Digital Audio Matrix Selector Switch:

This matrix switch is well built and works great! I use it for audio only in my case and for this price < $50, it was the best solution to my situation. I wanted to be able to switch any of 3 audio inputs to any 2 outputs. In my case I used RCA and the one stereo input in front to hook up a Bluetooth receiver, chromecast audio and audio RF receiver to my Denon receiver or Sony boombox so my kids can easily play/cast music from BT on their phones or youtube music to boombox and/or high-end audio system without any complicated steps. I control all devices including this switch with Logitech remote... I only use 2 outputs and again only audio but for this price you can't beat it... I don't use the digital connectors on it but be aware that it doesn't convert from analog to digital or vice versa. Also it is a bit bulky but it blends well on a component shelve. The colored LEDs in the front are very cool...

    Perfect solution for sending 3 different sources to 5 different TVs. Used in conjunction with Component/dig audio baluns to send throughout the house. Had this box for several years, then when it got zapped by a power surge C2G was the cheapest and fastest solution to get back up and running.

    Comments about 3x5 Component Video + Stereo Audio + TOSLINK® Digital Audio Matrix Selector Switch:

    I have all of the equipment in my house running through this matrix device. I can watch anything from any of my three HD devices on any of my five HDTVs. I am using cheap cables and even with a 50' input cable and a 75' output cable the HD quality is great! My only gripe would be that it could use more inputs and outputs for larger systems/households.

      Does it matter what "direction" the inputs and outputs go? In other words, can this be used as a 5 input to 3 output switch?
