RE: Stereotape/Audio Arts question

RCA Victor started releasing their stereo tapes in 1954, and they were upper/left and lower/right whether stacked or offset (staggered).

Judging by their brochure (enclosed in the tape box) Audio Arts used the Ampex 3200 duplicators which - as I understand - used the upper/left and lower/right standard. So I would assume it was their writer in error.

In any case, I will play the tapes again, reverse the channels, and see which sounds better.
