Default Sharing 5.1 speaker system between 2 computers

Hello everybody.

I have Logitech X-540 Speakers (5.1) and I was running them on my desktop for several years.
I built another PC that I want to use for gaming only. While I have G430 headphones for it, I would like to have an option to switch my speaker system between these 2 PCs. I researched many KMV switches and none of them would work. I assume that there is a 2:1 switch needed that supports 3 mini-jack
cables that run from the audio cards but I am having a terrible time finding something that will work.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any leads.

I have never done such a thing, but maybe this is legit? Share speakers between two different computers - TechRepublic

It may not apply to your specific situation, but it could be a good place to start.
