Cartridge pin color-coding question

Hi guys

After checking all the cartridges i own,i've realized there is no standart regarding color coding.Some manufacturers , when you look the cartridge from the back,stylous facing down,place the "hot" on the top row and others on the lower row.Can anyone please tell me if i connected my Koetsu urushi properly ? (white-top left , red-top right , blue - bottom left , green - bottom right ) I've read somewhere that Koetsus use the (blue/green - top left.right) system. is that true ?

It doesn't matter where they place the connecting pins, just that you know which are which. That is why they are color coded.

Red = R+
Green = R-
White = L+
Blue = L-
The manual that came with your new cartridge should illustrate that for you.

Thanks Bill but it's a Koetsu,that means,no color coding,no manual,nothing.Just a cool wooden box.Anyway,i did check it with the "cardas" test lp and found out,if anyone else has the same problem and let's hope all Koetsus are the same,that the configuration is :
red-top left
white-top right
green-bottom left
blue-bottom right

Thanks anyway Bill
