Sounds like the inverting button does the trick for you. Flipping 2 and 3 at one end of the XLR ought to accomplish the same thing.

Rockvirgo, are you confident that by me pushing the "Invert" button on my pre corrects this and does not mess up other pieces connected.
This is what my concern is.
I know if I was to have one end changed on my IC that would correct but it's a bit expense to do when I'm not even sure if I like the amps.
Any other thoughts.
Dev, I think you will find that the invert switch does not do what you want all the time- the reason for this is that about half of all recordings made are out of phase. There is absolutely no reason for concern about the equipment with the switch in either position.
FWIW, the industry standard for XLRs is: Pin 1 ground, pin 2 non-inverting, pin 3 inverting.
