Gah, is there even a point in sleeping now? Have to start morning routine in two hours.

I guess not. I'll just fire up diablo again (thanks for ruining my "free" time AGAIN, blizzard!). If I had two machines I'd be done by now :)

Also, that reminds me. In the theoretical two-machines setup, I'd need them both attached to the same speakers (klipschen). Everything's analog. Will a basic Y-splitter work, or do I need to buy even more crap? :P

Sorry man, you need a shorting 2-pole switch.

Rotary switches are commonly used, but those are likely to have 6 positions.

I can set you up with whatever you need.

Nuts! I figured it wouldn't be that simple. I could always get a KVM with audio support, since I'm getting one anyway. Is there an alternative to getting an expensive mixer to get sound from both sources into the speakers at once?

Oh, from both at ONCE?

This is doable without a mixer. You need 6 resistors. You also need to use outputs that would be capable of driving headphones, not just line outs (though on MOST soundcards, they are the same).
