    Combining inputs for active speakers & vol ctrl - preamp needed?

    I have the following components that I'd like to link in a more friendly way:

    2 x Sources (DVD & Squeezebox)

    1 x pair of active speakers + sub with single input

    What I'd love is something that would let me keep both sources plugged in at once, switch between them and have remote control of the volume. I don't need real audiophile quality (or cost) - it sounds like a preamp might be what I need? I've only ever used integrated amps or seperate mixer / power amps before, so preamps are not an area I know much about.

    Does such a basic / relatively cheap item exist? I'm fed up getting off the sofa to change the volume and switch cables....

    A preamp would be ideal. If that's too much consider the Creek remote-controlled passive preamps like this one:

    They are small, inexpensive (even when new), and very good quality for a simple application such as the one you described.
