    I might be being a bit thick but here goes. When i wire my speakers up per the unit left speaker to left and right speaker to right the left channel audio comes out of the right speaker and vice versa.
    What's that all about?

    Do your speaker cables cross each other on their way to their respective speakers?

    I'd say you either don't know left from right or something is seriously wrong.

    Probably have the phono cartridge wired backwards if source is from an Lp.

    I can read left or right. Very strange.

    I figured, just joking. That does seem very odd though.

    It was my dac. I changed a lead and plugged red connection out of my DAC to red on my rega amp. Red to red was obviously wrong. I think.

    My DAC has left and right on the outputs but the rega doesn’t have left and right written on the inputs so I assumed red to red was right. Or am I still wrong?

    On almost every piece of gear I've owned red has been right.

    I know. I think I’m wired wrong at the moment. I’m a bit away with the fairies at the moment though as I’m recovering from surgery and a little bit high on pain killers. I might be doing something wrong.

    It's making me laugh now. I've corrected my wiring now and taken less morphine today.
