Amp/Speaker selector — Luxman AS-55

Hello all,

I am interested in the Luxman AS-55 speaker/amp switch. https://japan-itema.com/product/luxman-as-55-speaker-selector-passive-high-definition-audio/

Can anyone comment on its quality and performance?
I want to use it with a Luxman L-509X and with an Air Tight ATM-1s — to switch between both amplifiers and a pair of Harbeth HL5 Plus speakers.
Does the AS-55 have sufficient quality for these two high-quality amplifiers?

Am I better off just swapping speakerwire bananas at the amp-side? (I know that I need to turn OFF the tubed amp especially when doing so....)

Thank you very much for your advice.

Sincerely,

Jeff

Thanks for that suggestion

I have also been recommended on the more expensive end of the scale, the Van Alstine Audio ABX Switch Comparator? Does anyone have experience with it?
