    I did that with a fork once.

    Yes but choosing such a silly low voltage as 115V was surely down to the Paranoia?!

    Give it up...
    This is a stupid argument.

    No I don't think so ! It's history . . .

    Aren't you aware of all the absurd "staged" demonstrations done by the Edison Company, electrocuting sheep and other animals, to try and frighten people into thinking that AC Mains was dangerous?

    That is surely why you ended up choosing such a low Mains voltage . . .

    And if this silly banter is continued, will it assist the OP in getting a correct for the USA answer to his question?

    There are better places to discuss the history of residential and industrial power distribution than in a thread about wiring a switch for an amplifier.

    Well the OP's question was answered AGES ago . . .

    I make no apology for hijacking the thread with this discussion . . . as it's what happens on this Forum all the time !

    Instead of trying to find a suitable AC switch for my amp, I installed a 20A double pole residential circuit breaker! Available right close-by at hardware store.

    Yes I am aware of that.
    I think you should do your homework there were other reasons behind choosing the lower voltage.

    This kind of argument is stupid, please take your nose out of the air and drop it.
