I do think it’s less common to see component switchers without audio, but they do exist.

I recommend a component switcher with audio. You shouldn’t use Y cables, as current can leak into the audio circuit of the other console (probably the half-volume problem you were experiencing), and having both consoles playing audio can put more current into the OSSC’s audio circuit than it expects.

Personally, I use an Audio Authority 1154A, which has automatic switching and also handles TOSLINK (currently PS2, Xbox, and non-HDMI Xbox 360).
