The cassette tape was revolutionary.


My interest in the compact cassette system (began in 1969) morphed into an interest in audio [including Quad] and later video.

I have 2 surround sound encoded pre-recorded cassettes (a Radio Shack Stereo-4 matrix encoded and an RCA Dolby Surround encoded).

I just bought low end stereo cassette decks, I bought some pre-recorded cassettes, didn't get a deck with Dolby B NR until 1979.

In an article posted in the recent Billboard...Quad thread, CBS was only asked why they didn't use the SQ matrix to make Quad 8-track cartridges, they weren't asked about using SQ to make quad cassettes (seems like the mechanical limitations of both 8-tracks and cassettes that could disrupt SQ decoding would be about the same).

Maybe, with the mild resurgence of pre-recorded cassettes of new albums, someone will get the bright idea (if there's a separate surround sound mix) of making matrix surround sound encoded cassettes. :)
