Splitting Analog Audio Signal
Is there a solution to retaining analog audio signal level when splitting a signal to two devices?
Do (RCA) audio cables have to be the same cable quality or gauge size to prevent level loss?
Is there a specific (non powered please) "splitter" to be used?
Short of a powered distribution unit, there is no way to split the signal without signal loss. But quality cables/shielding can reduce how much loss there is, in some cases to the point it is not noticeable.
Thanks for your reply
The low level audio problem exists when there are two simultaneous "split" connections.
Would a "switch" be a solution, where there is either an "A" or "B" audio cable connection?
Or wouldn't this device sufficiently isolate the low level audio issue?
Those devices are usually mechanical, meaning they disconnect one side or the other. That would prevent signal loss from the split, because there would no longer be a split.

Unless the input/output impedances are out of whack, I'd say your signal level should not suffer any noticeable loss. What are these devices that you're hooking up?
