Aussie plugs should resemble a grounded US plug but with slightly angled hot/neutral prongs and a flat ground prong.

That would be interesting if they ship that amp with a type-C cable as those are for low-amperage applications (I think somewhere around 2-3A, my Euro code is a bit fuzzy). Is it a flat-ish plug end with only two round prongs? Or a round plug with two round prongs and a metal lip and/or hole in the top center of the face of the plug surface?

I wouldn't operate the amp without a ground, especially since it's part of the IEC connector on the amp itself.

Yes so one is Aussie and the other is EU - only 2 round prongs and NO ground.

The ground is either a hole in the face of the plug or exposed metal strips on the sides.

Aaah... yes I see that. So the ground pin is in the receptacle?

Would this work so I don't have to 'cut the cord' ??

I would not even consider this.  Just cut the plug off and install a high quality leviton commercial plug.

Thanks Geert - I believe it was the same in the UK from what I remember ( I've lived here for most of my adult life so I forget stuff these days)

Yep, either a prong sticks out of the outlet or the metal lip grounds directly to the outlet itself.

There are two ways to do anything:
1) Do it right
2) Do it over until you do it right

I always have to lookup the brown/blue.  Never can keep it memorized sufficiently that I trust myself.  Last time was wiring some LED floods in my backyard into the box so had to look it up while on the ladder!
