the MultiCh on the old Sony SACD is a total load of balls comprising bits of the Quad mix in the Front channels and ambience thereof in the Rears and is indeed missing elements from the Quad. avoid avoid avoid!I think @ubertrout or @humprof can offer a more informed opinion, but I believe the original Sony SACD is compromised - the multichannel mix uses the front channels of the old quad mix, so it's missing instruments including the organ. Remedying it was the reason that Mike wanted to do this one, because generally speaking he avoids redoing albums that have already had a hirez digital reissue.
