Abstract: Since the 1930's many authors have studied the distribution of the random series where the signs are chosen independently with probability and . Solomyak recently proved that for almost every the distribution is absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue measure. In this paper we prove that is even equivalent to Lebesgue measure for almost all .
