    I recall some good threads on this before TGP crash, but 'search' isn't helping me today.

    Am I correct that the Lehle is the best? Anything a tad more affordable, but just as non-ground-loop/noise friendly?

    My Startouch was noisey, thought I had a bad one so I bought a second...same thing. I was really disappointed. Frantone may have the best out thier but very expensive..

    Used a Morley ABY for years until I discovered the Radial Engineering Switchbone JX2. Big difference and a much better switcher with a couple of cool extra features. The boost feature alone is great and saves space on my already space challenged board. Well worth the $$ when running a multi-amp rig.

    +1 again for Startouch. Never had any problems, and it just sits quietly on my board and does what it's supposed to. I'm surprised to hear that yours was noisy, trower. Just curious....we're you using it on battery or a power supply?

    AFAIK, it's not necessarily the A or B that gets ya, it's the Y. Dealing with ground loops and phase issues when combining 2 amps (Y) can be tricky, and that's where some of the cheaper units fall short. I can vouch for the Radial JX2 Switchbone -- not cheap, but it delivers as advertised. The newer, less expensive unit might work just as well for some setups.
