    Do not offer for free, offer for sale, offer for trade, or request copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. 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. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad. Our message base is an incredibly rich resource of detailed information on virtually all topics pertaining to surround-sound. You will be surprised at what you can find with a little digging!

I could be wrong too. I thought Jon mentioned it last week.
Ed had cancer and it was not good. He battled it and was hoping he'd make it to the White Album release. When he didn't login after that came out I searched and searched the internet, asked over at SHF, Pm'd, emailed, but got no response. He did not surface for Abbey Rd, so I have to assume that he's gone. I don't think he'd not login here since 10/25/18 if he could. His PM's to me about his battle were very heartbreaking.

I am so sorry to hear that about Ed and frankly about anyone here.
You read a persons posts over time and even though you have never met them you feel you got to know them.

We are a niche in a niche. I only have one old friend who though not into surround is into the music we grew up with and still buys it and turns me on to recommendations like Hawkwind , Armageddon and now this Budgie group. He listens to Coltrane and Miles and Charles ives too so hes well rounded. Of my other later friends in my life only one of them was interested enough to still go to concerts....
