What do you switch if you go with double pole? Both neutral and hot?
BTW Mouser has some 6A rotary switches to use. SPDT or DPDT. I'm planning on using these for my next amp, not a chipamp though - Aleph 30 monoblocks.

Put hazed plex behind the round hole and a LED behind it to light up the hazed plexi to signal when it is on.

So basically the hole would glow whatever color LED you have and be basic White when off.

Good idea troystg!.I will start this week.I think I will use blue light better but,I do not want to use led(I do not want to disturb the power supply).so I guess I will put something like blue plexiglass.

How would a LED disturb the power supply?
