Possible to connect one pair of speakers to two systems?

Wondering if there is a way to connect a single pair of speakers to two systems (receivers) at the same time. The receiver the speakers are currently connected to is a basic home theater receiver. The other is an older stereo receiver that has pre-outs which I think I could use to connect to the other receiver. If not, anyone know of a device that will allow this?

You’re not trying to run both sources at the same time are you? If not an av receiver should do this.

Are you trying to run the home theater receiver and the old stereo receiver at the same time on one set of speakers? Or do you want to switch between them. If you have a link/picture to the back of each receiver it would be easier to answer the question.

Simplest way I could explain is I'd like to connect one pair of speakers to two different receivers. If I was to connect pre outs into one of the sources of the receiver that has the speakers connected to would that work?

Update: Connecting pre out from old receiver to analog input on new receiver works.
