Technical problems and plug sockets

Years ago, I think it might have been said that art did not need a plug socket. Nowadays, they are a requirement for many art forms. I have been thinking about an installation that I am planning, 30 headphone sockets, 30 extension cables, 30 inputs into …. and inputs into sockets. Can I split the cables or will it make the signal too weak?

If I was thinking about what an artist does, would I think that these sort of planning problems are part of being an artist? I think I would like a personal technician who can take my vision and transform it into reality.
