    Hi all,

    Very sorry if this is the wrong forum:

    I have a set of pc speakers on my desk which are plugged into my PC (I use it for occasional gaming.) I do the bulk of my work however from my MAC: do you know if it's possible to get a dual jack lead so I can connect the speakers to my pc and Mac at the same time rather than constantly swapping the connection over?

    Many thabks.

    James

    A 3.5 mm (passive) jack switch should do that; type "3.5 mm jack switch" into Google and look at the results.
    Then switch from either MAC or PC into the same speakers.

    You could use one of these. Depending on the distance between mac & pc you may need a couple of these. As Chris said a switch like this.
