As many of you already know, Synergy's "Electronic Realizations for Rock Opera" is a wonderful QS recording. The CD maintains the integrity of the original LP and decodes wonderfully with a QS decoder.

It is an absolute myth that the follow-up LP, "Sequencer", is also QS encoded. Check out Larry Fast's (Synergy's) own website to confirm:


Specifically, consider the following excerpt from that page:

"The Quad phenomenon had died down a lot since "Electronic Realizations" and due to the compromises in sound quality and dynamic range I decided to opt for a conventional stereo mix. Mastering to disk was performed by George Marino at Sterling Sound in New York."

Just to be absolutely sure, I e-mailed Larry Fast himself and asked him about it. Lo-and-behold, he actually replied and was very helpful. Without a doubt, "Electronic Realizations" is the one an only quadraphonic release from Synergy.

I seem to recall having that "Sequencer" album on clear vinyl and it having a surround sound statement of some sort on the back of the jacket.

But then again, I may be wrong..........

I have a spare copy of Synergy ERFRO if you are interested in a trade. I think it might even be a promo, but I would have to look. Mike.
