    That would technically work, yes. Only thing I'd add is 6 very low-power diodes on the left and right connectors so that you don't have any wierd cross-modulation. You could also go the easier way and get or build a mixer.

    I'm not sure about that diode advice...

    Is this supposed to split an output, or allow combining of an input?

    I've just always found that electricity kinda goes wherever it wants permitting certain circumstances. It's a safety precaution for the sound.

    I suspect what steve is hinting at is that using diodes is likely to cause much distortion to the signal.
    This is definately something you Do NOT want :)

    Hence keep diodes out of this audio circuit

    Ah, right, didn't even think of that. Well, I did, kinda, by saying "low power", but I see the point. My apologies. My sig really says it all!
