My only gripe with the quad mix is that Herbie's extended synth solo from around 4:00-7:30 in "Chameleon" feels a bit more recessed and reverb-y than it does in the original stereo. It kinda sneaks in over your left shoulder when it really should hit you right in the face. Otherwise, it's killer.
So, if I'm interpreting your comments correctly, anything that was too reverby/distant for my tastes on the 5.1 SACD (like the synth solo you mentioned) will be the same on this quad? Is that accurate? If so, that's extremely helpful as far as me deciding whether to buy this.

Yes, that's unfortunately baked into the quad mix. The SQ LP is the same way.
