Switching between spakers and headphones

So is there a KVM switch-style device that exists that makes it far easier to switch between audio devices?

If so, where can I buy one?

I hate having to pull plugs out from the back of my PC to switch.

Ah, this might be useful, but not for exactly what I want.

I need to switch between my headphones and speakers, both of which are connected to my desktop monolith. I want a device that will let me flip a switch (or similar) and go from listening to my audi through speakers to headphones.

Does she exist? Where do I find her?

Plenty of devices to do this.
Just depends on the wattage.

Can we name some of these devices?

I have no idea on wattage, speakers are 30w (I think), very basic, got them for $20 from Officeworks.

Headphones are the Sennheiser RS120 radio wireless ones.

In this case, -80 is talking about the wattage of the computer's sound card... not the output wattage of the speaker's amplifier.

Just about anything will do the trick... if you get a switch capable of 200W (for example), it'll also work fine for line-level audio (typically <1W). It's the other way around that makes magic smoke escape.

Ah, atm, integrated only on my GB 965P-DS3, considering dedicated cards for the next build (next month).

Recommendations?
