    switching between headphones and 4.1 system

    hi guys, i am looking for a way to easily switch between headphones and my 4.1 system for gaming/music/movies. is there any kind of signal switch that can do this? the audio components are an audigy 2 zs, altec lansing 4.1 system, and the zalman 5.1 headphones. its getting old constant having to crawl under my desk to unplug cables. another option i was considering was getting a few 6' Y-splitters and just leaving them both plugged in most of the time. anyone else ever deal with this?

    thanks,
    marc

    "Y" spliters are the way to go , I use 1 spliter between my stereo headphones and my front speakers of my 5.1 setup with 0 problems.

    Ofcorse with your 5.1 phones you will need 3 spliters.
