    Too bad that wasn't his question. The most I've seen is 1 Aux and 1 CD changer input that could be used as another Aux w/ an adapter.

    disclaimer: i have no idea if there are dual aux head units

    that said.. couldn't you (depending on your sound card) just go from PS2 to line in on the computer ... that should pass the signal straight through on most sound cards i think... thus eliminating the need for dual aux and (i imagine) saving you a bunch of money.

    I have a JVC which has an AUX on the front and LINE IN on the back for the CD changer. It requires a $40 adapter to use the LINE IN. If you need the model number let me know and I'll post it. It's about a year old but I've seen them for sale on the net for around $125-$150.

    There's also the lame unsafe way... which I use all of the time. Having multiple computers and a single audio system, I just put RCA splitters or 1/4" headphone splitters to connect both inputs... Used to connect my CD changer and computer RCA inputs to my home reciever for awhile... because I wanted to listen to CDs while I was playing games/etc. And connected two computers via 1/4" headphone splitter for awhile as well, back in the days of playing EQ on two computers.

    Probably not good for all of the components involved... but it's a solution that doesn't involve switches, changing adapters, etc... Only used with home electronics, though, but it works... will probably introduce some noise, etc.

    I would definately recommend going with the line input on sound card approach, but if you are lazy/brave, you might want to try the combination approach...

    I believe the model number for these HUs:

    KD-SH77
    KD-SH99
    KD-SH707
    KD-SH909

    JVC doesn't make any of them anymore, but you can still find them on eBay.
