Aside from the different cases and graphics, are there major differences in the Q8's made/sold in Canada than their counterparts in the USA?

I have heard that many Canadian Q8s have channels reversed, or less agressive mixes.

There are also some Canada only releases, what's up with that?

Any 8 track specialists care to chime in?

United Artists Canadian Q8's came in gold coloured shells, very high quality and many used Dolby NR as well, many people balked when I suggested that the Canadian Q8 of Donald Byrd sounded almost as good as the DV SACD, but it's actually true.
