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.

  • Or, the forum for the old vinyl and quad 8's and reels. It's far from complete--there are many hundreds of non-classical titles yet to post--but a few hundred are here with more to come; I pretty much add 'em when I'm in the mood, or one of you good folks PM me with a request to add something. The best way to use this forum is to go to the bottom of the page and look for something alphabetically by title. The last name of an artist is first where applicable, as in Simon, Paul. The Guess Who are listed as Guess Who, The, to facilitate finding them easily. Soundtracks, Original Cast, and Various Artists are listed as such first, then the album title. A few classical titles are here, with Classical as a header (or will be if I ever weed them in). The idea is to be able to alphabetize and then click, page by page, an A-Z (forward or backward) of what it up at the moment. To do this effectively, remember to click 'Beginning' in the left box, 'Thread title' to its right, so that all titles will list. No titles are ever removed, and all are accessible, and nothing (to date) has been lost in the ether. Just as vinyl lasts a lot longer than its creators could have imagined, so has this board, so far. We're small but we ain't goin' anywhere! FWIW, most of these mixes are long out of print, and only available digitally through like-minded audiophiles--some easy to find, some tough, some perhaps impossible at this time due to rarity or someone just hasn't gotten around to making a transfer from the original sources. That's too bad, but the record companies in the new millennium have no interest in reissuing these even as DTS titles. The exceptions are the QS albums, which if you have the equipment, should decode on CD as they did on vinyl, since for most only a QS master was made. Some SQ titles do exist on CD as well, but not a lot, and less of those were SQ only. As for CD-4 discrete, some titles have made their way onto DVD-Audio, DVD or SACD formats and some OOP DTS titles, but the majority are still commercially unavailable, alas. Only vintage albums are spotlighted here, although there is nothing wrong with discussing the alternate 5.1 or quad mixes that have come along since the 1971-76 'golden age' of quadraphonic sound which, thanks to the three major competing formats (CD-4, SQ, QS), inferior decoding equipment, and consumer confusion and misunderstanding and major label incompetence, rendered the format all but dead by the end of '76. Anyone curious about what quad titles from this time frame exist should click here for Mark Anderson's discography listings. Final note: If there is a title you want to see here that I haven't gotten to as yet, shoot me a PM and I'll see what I can do. There are still many hundreds left to go, and we're here to stay....

No votes on this one, and I didn’t see a mention of the DTS release in the poll section.

I’ll keep searching.

(Edit)

Just scoured the forums here and elsewhere. Nobody has ever commented on this title in DTS released format!

If this is the one I think it is; there’s a major mastering flaw in the dts version. The metadata is wrong and shows information for a Mathis compilation album instead on my Oppo!

That would be a database input error and not your discs fault I think.

Like it’s been ripped to a file and someone typed in erroneous info? Because CDs don’t have metadata, at least I think they don’t.

This is it Pupster and it's a lovely disc with a nice surround involvement but would certainly be rife for a D~V 'UPGRADE.'

Second thought - But maybe some cd discs do have a bit of info embedded in there somewhere????

Yeah, I don’t know 🤷‍♂️ about the data formatting, but someone else can please verify?

I need that gosh darn disc, and the used market thinks it’s a $50 disc. Like I says I need to hear this cough, cough.

It’s in that site called 5point1 which has the last of the sealed DTS remainders, which means not a rare one really.

Yet Amazon and eBay listings act like it’s ultra.

Maybe a gort (joke) can start a DTS -CD Spotlight post in the DTS category for those future votes that are all going to pour in on this fantastic four channel work of mixing / mastering quality.

Thanks to 4-earredwonder we now have the front and back scans so nice and perfect of this rare disc for that thread.
