Default Rotary AC power on/off switch for a dac?

I will be building a Buffalo DAC in which I want to have a rotary switch as the AC mains power on/off switch.
Iíve been looking for a quality switch that can handle 230V, with 2 poles and 2 positions (on/off), 90degree index angle, flat shaft for custom knob, but I havenít been able to find anything..
Would someone here happen to know of such a switch, maybe guide me in the right direction or should I stop searching?

Not 90 degrees, but very robust: Ebay object # 200470488289

or you could use a light-duty 90 degree switch and drive a relay coil with it

Lorlin makes a switch that suits most of your criteria (I don't know what the index angle is), the RMS series. You can get them from VT4C and Farnell.
