Input limited


Setting up my Pioneer SX-1050. In the 70s all you had for other inputs was tape. Unit has Tape1, Tape2 and Aux. 

I also have CD and a Squeezebox. Both line level. 
So, how do I jam 2 inputs into the Aux? A plain RCA A-B switch box?

You can use the Tape1  and Tape2 "PLAY" as a line level input.
For example, connect the CD player output to Tape1 "PLAY" input, switch on the Tape Monitor1 for CD playback, switch it off to select other source.
I think they will all work, you have a tape monitor too? That is fixed, everything else is selectable and line level except the phono section.
Isn't tape 5-600 ohms too?  I got to brush up.. I know there are different EQ curves. I'm just now getting back into it.. It's for recording and dubbing, (I think) Mic input, and head phone.
I think this is correct:

The inputs were named so front labeled designations for playing or recording tapes from/to Tape DECKS (often two Tape Decks) made sense.

Tape DECKS have internal equalization, then it’s line out, line in. So, you can use any line/tape in/out/loop/ to play any line level signal. Also any Tape DECK into any line input.

IF it says Tape HEAD, then it is only good for a tape signal that has not been equalized. The device would have internal tape equalization, similar to built-in phono equalization.

Therefore, Tape HEAD input cannot be used by any other device, line level or otherwise, just as a MM Phono input which has built-in phono equalization can not be used by any other line level device, or MC weak signal. 

Certain era equipment, prior to standardization, had options for various equalization curves for both Tape and LP’s, they had several built in equalization circuits, all fed from the Tape HEAD or Cartridge.
Sorry gents. I should have mentioned I have a Sony cassette deck and a Teac open reel. The tape in/outs are used. My SAE 5000 is using the Adapter loop (originally for a Dolby unit). My EQ unit will be in the pre in/out loop.

I am left with Aux for the CD and Squeezebox.
So you are out of inputs. Your options now are to use one RCA and switch it from CD to Squeeze, or 2 RCA and swap them at the amp. Or if one of your tape decks is seldom used for recording, then you could run the CD or Squeeze into the REC input of that deck, and when you want to listen to it flip the deck to REC and monitor the line level through the deck.
Hard to find a plain audio switch with all in/out on the back. Next best thing includes composite video.  Found these 3 😊

Well 1 in and  4 out with a rotor switch is gonna be the safest. Can't hit two sources at one time and reverse the way it goes into the pre.
1 out 4 in.. on a rotor switch.. PE sell them I'm sure

I Use a Goldpoint switch which works perfect for my application.  Perhaps it will suffice for yours also.  Scroll to the bottom of the home page for various box options.

Not out of inputs, just use the tape plays, same line in, different names. Pioneer NEVER had tape head. Just put labels over them.
2 tape loops, 2 tape machines. Only Aux available.
Still only allows 1 device at a time. Bought the cheapest of the 3 switches. Will use the Aux and switch to connect CD and Squeezebox.
I have often used Y adapters for things like 8 Track and Cassette into 1 input. You only use one at a time.

You can use the audio of these video switchers, this one is 3 in/ 1 out. My old one is 4 in / 1 out.

You can put two TT into one, and then go out to MM/MC/SUT Phono Stage you will only play one at a time. Avoid long cables.

I use a Chase RLC-1 Remote Line Controller, it has 4 remotely selectable inputs, my integrated has 4 remote selectable inputs, and my Vintage McIntosh Tube Tuner/Preamp has many manually selectable inputs, the only problem is remembering what I’ve done. And I still use a Y for Cassette and 8 Track to use only one of the nearby RLC-1’s inputs.
Using a Y with both devices attached changes the seen by the receiver impedance, no?
