Manley Labs - Skipjack Preamp Source Selector

Pre Amps

Now available again!


Four-into-one or three-into-two audiophile source selector. Too clever and very useful!

Have you ever wanted to compare two or more sets of interconnects, or listen to the difference between a couple of preamps or a few CD players, or be your own armchair reviewer? How about you guys with the Manley Steelhead? You have one line input available and have to keep swapping cables when you want to listen to different sources. Hey, or would you like to go backwards and have one source drive either this or that? And why has no one ever commercially offered a real high-end audiophile thing to do this job?

What you need is a simple A-to-B source switcher, and that's what the Manley Skipjack is, and more. But behind the deceptively simple facia is some incredibly clever and thoughtful engineering. A brilliant design!
