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.

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.

A few things to consider:
  • Loop system is useful for those with T-coil hearing aids. FM systems can be adapted for hearing-aid use with a "neck loop".
  • Loop system is less prone to radio interference -- or to cause radio interference.
  • Loop system requires users to be inside the loop. If the loop only surrounds the sanctuary, stepping into the foyer or restroom means they'll lose reception. FM systems typically have a range that allows for users to range further; for example, security personnel or a parent that needs to bring a child out to the car.
  • Loop systems can cause interference with analog video signals (though this usually means you have poor video cabling).
  • If the loop is too large, the signal can be lost or fade toward the center of the loop.
  • FM systems can receive or cause RF interference, though this is less of a problem in the band designated for unlicensed use of assistive listening systems (72 MHz).
  • The public broadcast spectrum (87-108 MHz) can be used without a license, providing your broadcast doesn't interfere with licensed usage and the received radiated power is within acceptable limits. I am not an authority on this and cannot recommend it as a solution because ensuring compliance is difficult.
  • Some FM systems can be finicky to tune and keep in tune.
  • The third option is an infrared system. Like a loop system, it limits the user to a defined coverage area (usually the room). It is generally considered to be immune to radio interference. It requires that the receiver have unobstructed line-of-sight to the transmitter. It, too, can be fitted with a neck loop for hearing aid use.
  • If you need multiple audio channels, FM works better in the same room (i.e., language interpreter system), but loop or IR can work better if you have multiple rooms with different audio (no need to manage channels on receivers). Probably not a huge concern in a small church!

Steve
thank you so much for your real world feedback.  I absolutely agree with you..  And I am so sorry too that new realities now have our ushers "watching" the entrances and exits..  sad.

I think I'll do that. Is one Australian and the other EU?. The EU one has no ground.... bit worrying??

I tend to look down and away from the stage when trying to hear if my mix is on point.
As noted, your eyes can cause deception!

This^^

I will sometimes look down at the console and then do a mental inventory across the channel strips  [without touching anything] to make sure i can clearly hear everything.  The trick is to not change anything until you're DONE with the inventory or else you just find yourself trying to make everything louder than everything else....

Yes, you could cut the end off of one of the other cables and wire your desired plug on.  We're working on an install now with Powersoft amps.  We're going to keep the other cables for spares just in case one of the US cables goes missing.

Yeah, I know. I'm starting a tour with the console and the file starting tomorrow, so that was sort of why I asked. Don't have time to mess things up, but it might be worth if I'd get a "no worries!" because my notes are just so strange to read, as a slight annoyance only though.

Ask on the FB DiGiCo users group.  There's lots of experience there and quite a few non-native english speakers.  My guess would be that as long as you're not using a special character set your notes will show up just fine.
