I've tried to Google and searching on sites like Amazon, perhaps I don't know the right keywords.

I am looking for a receiver that can mix multiple inputs. Right now I have a cheap, passive analog stereo mixer, but this does not help me with things like TOSLINK (optical or coax) and HDMI inputs. It is also an extra piece of hardware, with extra cabling, etc.

Is there such a thing as a receiver that can select multiple inputs at once (mixing)? Only having the option of selecting one input at a time is not acceptable for my needs.

If this doesn't exist, I'd be willing to run an amplifier with mixing capability, or a separate mixer device--in that order of preference--if it could take multiple input types (as stated above).

  • Yes, there is. It's called, strangely enough, a mixer.

  • You need to identify the type of hardware you need; once you've done that and have some specific requirements for it, this question can be reopened or you can ask a new one.

  • I thought I was specific.

  • Not particularly, I'm afraid. You also haven't identified the type of hardware you're looking for - right now you're asking for a recevier, or an amplifier, or a mixer. We can only recommend one at a time.

    Good question! People, don't try to be smart. Audio mixing capabilities would be very handy for home use. Besides that it is now easy for manufacturers to implement such feature (as most of them use linux OS).
