RE: best on/off toggle switch to fix Thor phono stage

If it were mine, I'd pull the broken switch out, and see what markings exist on the housing and then try and match that up with the offerings at Mouser or Digikey. At minimum the voltage and current rating (amps) should be clearly marked, assuming it's a UL listed switch. You can easily go with a switch with a higher a current rating (never lower), but keep in mind that as the amp capacity goes up so does the amount of force required to flip the toggle. If you want to keep the "feel" of the original switch, do your best to match the electrical specs of the busted one.
