Default connecting new cartridge

My old cartridge has pins marked R, RE, L and LE.
Are the E ones the ground pins?

It would appear the other cartidge have pins marked L+ L- and R+ R-, but it seems the + side corresponds to the E side of the old cart.

wires were connected

LE Blue
L White
RE Green
R Red

Not sure if E correspond with earth, if does would it be correct to connect as follows?
L- Blue
L+ White
R- Green
R+ Red

Please help, I'm burning to proceed.
