In short, it's nonsense.

Why is it nonsense?

Do you really expect an answer? @snarly gave you the God's honest truth.

The only way it would even potentially be better:

You have a SB2 that was modded and the mod 'corrected' the polarity on output, which was due to a software bug in versions <= 15 of the SB2.

Even then, it's dubious whether it is meaningful or not.

Ie, VERY old versions of firmware (<=15) had a bug.

Some modder decided to fix it in hardware.

The bug was fixed in software at v16 and later.

So, all you would be doing is (in theory) making things worse, assuming you believe polarity is discernable.

Do you have a modded SB2?

No-one has mentioned Firmware 15 here in 4 years.

Please let it die.

It is not better in any sense than the later versions.

The one thing that will give you better sound quality is an upgrade to a Touch. The digital outs of previous SBs were utter crap.
