RE: All true in the perfect world of today.

Interesting to lean that all the mass produced audio equipment manufactured in the 1970s for sale in the UK had a 3 wire cord and 3 wire grounding type plug.

I never suggested such kit came with a 3-wire cord or a "3 wire grounding type plug" (whatever that is). I wonder if you know what "double insulated" means.

In fairness, your confusion may have arisen because appliances sold in the UK with two-wire cords do nowadays come with a three-pin plug though the "earth" pin is unconnected and typically plastic. There are valid reasons for that but they are not relevant here; I'd hate to add to your muddle.

The rest of your post was not worth the effect to respond.

If, as I assume, you meant "effort", I know how you feel.
