Of course, the long-standing tradition in stereo equipment has been

Yeah, and I wonder when this tradition came into play. I had always
used Red=Left and Green=Right to identify tracks, and wired things
with Red=Left since that's how the running lights on a boat are
displayed. I was caught by surprise years ago when manufacturers
started color coding their jacks to Red=Right! Of course, the red
bouys are kept to your right when you're coming into port...
Interesting! I thought it made sense to mark them politically, so red = left.
Worked fine till I bought an amp where the patch cords were hard-wired.
