Prevalent Absolute Polarity for some Recording Labels
While the topic here is the absolute polarity of the recording in question, these listings are NOT absolute...pun intended. They may vary from disc to disc on the same label, or, you may find that some of these labels sound better to you with the opposite polarity than I have listed. These listings merely represent my prevalent feelings on the matter. And, I have not had a player with a polarity switch to be able to verify or change my mind on these choices in nearly 4 years.

For the most ACURATE and up-to-date listings, please see "The List," as compiled by George Louis, which contains recommendations for over 1100 labels! Click here for a direct connection to George's home page, UltraBit Platinum Plus.
