    Excellent quality, and fast Delivery
    I was looking for a high quality switch to build a RCA switch. This Elma switch doesnt disappoint I hardly recommend anyone who needs a high quality switch for audio to try this switch.

    As this was my first purchase at Dons Audio the switch was very well packaged and send at the same day.
    So excellent service on there part and I will be a returning customer for sure.

    Elma 16x3 switch
    I needed a way to switch my custom Sowter output transformers, which have 4 identical secondaries. Switching 16 leads total was proving to be a hard problem to solve without one of these.

    Built well, easy to take the 4 levels apart to solder, very solid clunk when you rotate it. The one thing Id remark is: be careful when soldering them off the main axle as it is really easy to rotate the discs between steps, and its a right pain in the rear to fix that.

    Nice store
    I am happy to have found this store. This is the only suitable place where an Elma switch with PCB pins is available. Great service, well packaged, shipped quickly.
    However, the very expensive shipping cost is disappointing. This is an unpleasant disadvantage.
    Thank you.

    Great robust switch High Grade!
    MIL spec level and the optional set-pin for fixing the position worked like a charm and is reversible (instead of trying to pull out the original pin and putting it in the new position).

    My request of asap delivery was answered and I had the switch in-house in a couple of days.

    Switch phono
    I bought this product to build a selector to switch between three tonearms. My pre-amplifier phono having only one one input I was moving often the modulation cables to do the switch.
    There are commercial boxes but those are designed for line-level signals not for low level signals (MC cartridges). Furthermore, those boxes do not implement the mass connector.
    The ELMA 04-1434 allows to have 3 inputs and one output while switching the hot and mass conductors for each tonearm.
    The mass connector must be implemented in the DIY box.
