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.

Linn Records, the venerable Glasgow-based audiophile record label (linked to the venerable Glasgow-based audiophile turntable & component manufacturer), has a nice back catalogue of tasteful (if unadventurous, mix-wise) multi-channel SACDs, by the likes of jazz vocalists Ian Shaw and Claire Martin, guitarist Martin Taylor, and mallet percussionist Kuniko Kato. I recently went to their website in search of a particular disc, only to discover that they've transitioned to "Studio Master" downloads--and only in stereo. But in response to my query about multi-channel, I got this prompt reply:

At the moment all Studio Master files are stereo only. We will be introducing multi-channel Studio Master downloads next year though, so I hope that is good news for you.
I think it is!

I have quite a few of Linn's multichannel [and a few Stereo] SACDs. Some wonderful recordings but the rears are ambience only.

I think that's mostly right. I only recently heard Kuniko Plays Reich, though--I forget who suggested it for the "Discrete Multi-Channel Classical" thread--and that one seems to be discrete.

The Kuniko recording is discrete but of the few dozen Linn mch SACDs I have they're ambient rears. State of the Art recordings.
