    Looking to replace my AV Amp (Pioneer VSX-D811s) which I have been very happy with. But looking at all of the equipment I would like to now connect to my new amp I think I will need 1 Digital Co-Axial and 5 Digital Optical inputs, does any such amp exist or is there another way for me to do this? Preferably without having to use sockets on the front of the unit.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Keene Electronics do a 4 (sorry) way Toslink selector (electronically/remote controlled). It's in their catalogue but not on the web site.

    My Denon 2805 has 6 optical and 2 co-ax inputs. I highly recommend it if the budget fits. A lot of japanese AV amps have loads of optical-ins as that is what they prefer over co-ax - or so i'm led to believe.

    Thanks to both of you.
    I will look into the costs involved in both solutions and work out how far my finances will stretch.

    Is your Denon a foreign/Japanese version? I checked their website and they only list 4 optical inputs + 1 on the front, and looking at their picture of the back panel I can only see 4 optical inputs and 2 outputs.

    Yamaha normally carry a stack load of opticals- often at the expense of coaxials.
