I am aware of Av receivers, the big buck boxes that are designed for home theater systems with many speakers, but I am in dire need of something like this but not quite.
I am looking for something that acts as an audio visual hub for my desk with multiple input outputs (spdif optical, coaxial, hdmi, maybe component) that I can connect, for example;

Pc HDMI and analog audio to said thing,
PS4 HDMI and optical audio to said thing,
Mobile audio (rca analog 3.5mm) to said thing,
Said thing to HDMI monitor or 2,
Said thing to headset (optical input),
Said thing to stereo computer speakers


All with the ability to switch and control inputs with the optional plus of having a remote...

So is there such a thing? Have I just been searching with the wrong keywords and there is a magical device like this?

If it was only HDMI, then a splitter/switcher would work.
You're looking to combine multiple input types.

My budget sadly would be close to the $100 and downwards mark
and also since its for a desk pc setup I don't really want it to be a big TV cabinet box....

Yeah, that might work. I have no experience with that particular thing, though.

Looking on Amazon, AV receivers start at about $200-$250. Pioneer, Yamaha, Denon...

Yeah thats the unfortunate part, I guess I was just hopeful that there would be maybe like a monoprice splitter thing that was a compromise....
