    I've got two computers on my desk. I use a KVM switch to share my peripherals. I want to also share my speakers. Is there some sort of speaker splitter I can purchase to do this? TIA

    You can indeed get speaker switches and the like, but i'm not sure how many channels can be switched at once (it might just be stereo).

    Likewise you can get switches for co-ax and optical digital outputs from soundcards/DVD players etc.

    If you're not too concerned about quality, you could connect the line in of one computer to the line in of the other, then connect the speakers to that computer. Then use the windows mixer.

    No, OCUK is not a search engine ;) You could also get a half decent amp with multiple inputs.
