    That would require a digital mixer with optical inputs. 


    While it could be made, I don't know of any such device actually existing.

    You cannot simply combine two different digital audio sources; they would need to go to separate inputs on a mixer of some sort.

    You can get simple toslink selector switches to use one or the other source, though - eg.


    Just get one of those and an extra toslink optical cable to connect the common on the switch to your mixamp.

    If you really wanted to combine the two, you could use two toslink / S-PDIF digital to analog converters, a mixer to combine the two sets of signals, then feed that to an analog to S/PDIF optical converter...

    Two of these:


    One of these:


    And one of these:


    Plus appropriate cables etc.

    I've used a very similar setup as that for someone a couple of years ago, to insert a mic feed into a digital audio link.. It's messy, with all the separate items, cables and power supplies, but it works.
