Question OCM 500 amp - AC polarity reversal??

I have an OCM 500 amp and have read from quite a few places that the factory sent most units out with the wrong polarity, which needs to be reversed in order for the amp to sound it's best. I'm not sure if mine is wrong or not.

Is checking the ground potential the best way to make sure it's polarity is correct?
