1K Club - QQ Shooting Star
- Jul 5, 2010
All you need for Mono Broadcast Mode is an SQ decoder. Use the left back output.https://worldradiohistory.com/Archive-All-Audio/Archive-Recording-Engineer/70s/Recording-1973-12.pdf#page=26^^^
Sansui QS "Mono Broadcast" mode is
a decoder function, whereby a 90° right
channel phase shift is used to obtain a
mono signal that maintains 360° signal
content to within 3 dB  . The "Mono
Broadcast" mode does not provide a
stereo or quad signal, but it is valuable
because any previously encoded QS ma-
terial may be used for totally compatible
monaural broadcast, and no sacrifices
in quad encoding are required.
Any plans for Windows and/or Macintosh software to implement the QS "Mono Broadcast" mode (stereo QS encoded audio would be output as mono [possibly as stereo, but with both channels containing the mono/phase shifted downmix])?
Current use would be mono playback of QS encoded content (possibly by a consumer w/Involve QS encoder) using a single smartphone speaker.
