    Do not offer for free, offer for sale, offer for trade, or request copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad. Our message base is an incredibly rich resource of detailed information on virtually all topics pertaining to surround-sound. You will be surprised at what you can find with a little digging!

Your Top 15 Surround Albums:
Interesting choice of albums, even though my top 10/15 list would be completely different. I have the feeling that the music genre/quality has played a key role in determining these titles. If I had to rank surround albums in pure terms of mix quality, I would definitely put Gentle Giant, King Crimson, Kraftwerk, Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, Tangerine Dream and XTC in the top 10/15... curious that apart from PF, these have been left out.
