Thanks for the links bro...I don’t recall many audiophile gears have the Safety mark on and that alone put many of the products we use at risk...Actually some of the non audio gears also don’t have the safety mark. So you got this fact there but I don’t think we have a solution in this hobby.

That said, my earlier post was referencing to the question of having switch at the outlet. I doubt there is any info available to clarify that...even medical outlets are available with no switch since the mains are protected.


The key is Safety Mark

Download pdf, go to page 8 to look for key word switch.

Thanks. there you go mousike. its called CP5 my electrician just called me.
but lots of technical jargon. did not explicitly define that a 13A wall socket UK point must have a switch.
search thru NEA also do not hold any information.
Somemore need to pay $67.40 to download 79 pages of the whole pdf file.

Malsound, thanks for the link.

DJQ, yes it’s a costly doc and scanning it thru indicates apparent standards available for both Switched and Unswitched outlets. So I am not certain an Unswitched outlet is noncompliance. Anyway, like all things in this hobby - plays with a little risk :)
