120V single phase at 15A from one of those ghastly bent metal connectors you
use comes to 1.8kW.
Is it your case that no mixing desk should be manufactured requiring > 1.8kW ?
Over here whether using British BS1363 connectors or the popular Schuko
(German) type and its derivatives widely used throughout Europe we can draw >
3kW from a single 'wall socket' or extension lead.

There isn't an issue anyway. It's 60Hz kit on 50 that can be a problem.

" UL 1950/CSA 22.2 950 is applicable both in the USA and Canada. The current
version is the Third Edition, which is based on the second edition, fourth
amendment of IEC 950."
Funny that, the new UL Standard puts a 1 in front of IEC's 950 !
