Where can one find a complete list of Sony quad import SACD's in this series? I know about Lotus and I think I found a Jeff Beck 4.0 on cdjapan but is that all there is?

Absolutely a 10, or even an 11. I bought an SACD player especially for this. I do have a needledrop of the Japanese SQ LP and tried to get a vinyl copy in good shape for some time now but was never lucky. But this SACD just blows it all away! WOW! This is one of the the 2 ultimate quad albums, together with DSOTM.

I believe there were more, for instance Kimiko Kasai with Gil Evans "Satin Doll" release in 2007 was also a mini-LP SACD including the quad mix from 1973

wow!! :eek:
did not know about that!! thanks for the info!! (y)
i've eyed up the SQ LP of that album a few times the last few years but never took the plunge and bought a copy (for reasons unknown.. but guess now it wasn't meant to be, as just found a used copy of the SACD for a - say it slowly and its slightly more palatable - £52 +shipping!).. hoping the surround mix is alright! ah well.. in for a penny (and all that jazz!) :phones

edit: do you know of any more MultiCh titles in this series, BeoProf?

HRAudio.net has some listings for Kimiko Kasai [including Satin Doll w/Gil Evans]: https://www.hraudio.net/search.php?format=0&keywords=Kimiko+Kasai

Satin Doll is listed as a Stereo SACD and is now OOP @ CDJapan. https://www.hraudio.net/showmusic.php?title=4627

ooohhh.. maybe a Stereo SACD will turn up.. or maybe it'll be SQ encoded, so I can decode it.. or maybe it will be Multichannel from the Quad after all.. life is full of surprises, as is this forum! :ROFLMAO:

Putting aside for a moment the issue of sound quality, the whole album is on YT and I think it decodes in SQ:
At least it sounded like quad through the VarioMatrix SQ decoder.

Ok guys, I need to backtrack on the Kimiko Kasai SACD. The one I ordered finally arrived and it is a beautiful "mini LP" edition, but it is the size of the SACD, not 7in like the Miles Davis.
Sorry, did not know this!
