Anyone know of a budget Integrated Amplifier that has a mono switch and balance control. For example I have a speaker outside and to a downstairs bathroom, Then I can move the balance all the way to the left for outside and right for the bathroom. By pressing the mono switch I 'm not missing out on any of the music. This would only be for occassional use with these speakers, the main speakers are q acoustics 2050 in high gloss white with a Sonos ZP90. All in white so looks and sounds sweet. If the AMP was white sthis would be a bonus Thanks

Hi,

I dont think you need a mono switch - wont the balance control on most amps do this, it moves position from speaker to speaker if it is fully over to the left both L&R will come through.

No- I'm pretty certain the balance control merely 'fades out' the other channel, rather than diverting both channels into one.

Moving it fully to the Left, for example, you would get the left-side of the stereo image only.

Don't know of any amps with a mono switch these days, you may have to make do with what you have, I'm afraid...

Can't think of any. There are plenty of amps with A/B speaker switching. Couldn't you change your plan to stereo in both?

In a word, no.

If you fail to find a suitable amp, just solder-up a lead which bridges the L & R inputs together when you flick a switch

This should be fine for what you want to do and it's cheap as chips: http://www.maplin.co.uk/2-way-stereo-speakers-switch-box-97927
