System dependent.
Crawling around on all fours vs sitting at a desk in front of a PC.
Well, my amp sits on top of one of my racks, so I just lean over it and swap L and R XLR cables. I don't have a PC in my listening room, and if I had I would not know how to fix things like this on it. :cool:

I now have the Japan version
Some sound is coming out of 5th speaker, It is a better Mix
both have DSD
I have them in Double CD case now.

The snare drum start on "one word" track7
also goes around all 4 speakers
Like the USA SACD does.

Are you sure you are hearing sound out of a 5th speaker? Here is a capture of the One Word waveform.
There is clearly nothing in the LFE or center channel. It is genuine quadraphonic.

Since it's a 4-channel mix, that means you have a ghost.

Get out of the house!

But the USA SACD doesn't do that. Ghost!

Yes I touched the 5th Speaker to feel the sound.
It Strange as it's not the Lead Guitar

It was on all tracks not just "one word."

I have put in other Japan 4 Channel SACD (Santana Abraxas) in
and they are 4 speakers.

It's not uncommon for quad reissues to feature a center and/or LFE, derived from the existing 4 channels.
It doesn't make it a "better" mix...

...the most barebones packaging of all my Japan Quad SACDs so far...

A fair observation, but it appears this is also the lowest-priced release in this series, about the same as a plastic jewel case.

It seems the cost increases in proportion to how elaborately the 7-inch replica packaging is presented.
Topped by the 22-panel Santana Lotus reproduction.

So if you're a "don't make me pay for scarfs and marbles" buyer, you win.
