Looking for advice !

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

I'm looking to set up a system in my house where I can have music(CDs and Vinyl), a laptop for movies hooked up to a projector and possibly the radio coming out of one set of speakers. I'm hoping to be able to just switch between said things as I please, so if I wanted to watch a movie just have the sound for that and then change to playing a CD and so on. Any ideas or insight would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, but the projector to accept all those inputs at once (audio included), and be programmed to switch between them on the fly.

You will still have to interact with your PC, cd player and whatnot, to control playback


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

So you need something like this: https://www.amazon.com/4x1-Switcher-Selector-Control-SB-5440RL/dp/B002WMZWVG ?

Im sure you could find something similar but way cheaper...

Something like that is what I had in mind tbh. The only thing is I don't know if I will need a new AMP to play the Vinyl through, would there be something that would work as an AMP for the vinyl and be suitable for the other things as well ?

I'm not even really sure what it is that I need but I would need a HDMI connection for the laptop and projector. I will have a look at the link there and see if it would sort me out though, thanks

If it's all in one room a receiver with a phono input would work.  

 

How would that work with playing movies through my PC ? I was looking at receiver earlier on and they seem to be the sort of thing I'm looking for but they are pretty expensive but I mean if it will work I don't mind paying a little more.
