Can I run a TV and a record player to the same set of speakers if I don't plan on using them simultaneously?

I have a pair of powered Cerwin Vega speakers that I run to a record player. I would also like to run them to my TV as the current sound isn't ideal and I don't want to purchase a soundbar. Can I do this if I don't plan on using them simultaneously? I do not want to have to disconnect the sources everytime.
 
You will need to a line level input selector to choose the TT or TV

An old AV selector would work too. Just use the audio jacks.
This assumes that your TV has a line level analog audio or headphone jack compatible with the input of the powered speakers. If the TV only has optical audio out you will also need an optical to analog converter like this one.
