If there was ever an album to truly test how quiet your CD-4 system is, this is it. I got it in the mail today and placed it immediately on the turntable. Sure, a couple of clicks and pops, but overall, pure joy! Thank you Sansui, Shure and the QRX Restore. Beautiful. View attachment 68645
BTW, sticker on the back shows "manufactured by RCA music service under license." Does this make any difference? :unsure:

Just a guess , but maybe it was a pressing from RCA 's music service . They had a quad record and tape club at one time.

I just got that one, too. But the SQ version.
nice one! its a great album with a very active Surround mix.

i remember the SQ LP decoding well through the Surround Master 🙂

the HDTracks 96/24 decodes even better than the SQ LP (amazingly the files are SQ encoded!)

Nice! I paid through-the-nose for my copy a few years back, but it sounds fantastic.
was "only" $25 (USD) but described as 'VG' and tbh the seller was right, there's a lot of crackles even though the discs spotless, especially on Side 1.. still nice to have it on CD-4 at last, i've been looking for a copy within budget for many years 🙂

Nice one man! any difference from the Q8 version? and whoever sent that, looks like they packaged it like a 🧱 :poop: 🏠 :)
i don't have the Q8 but i wouldn't imagine there'd be a world of difference?
certainly bits of the mix separate out in CD-4 with what i would call absolutely microscopic spillover that you'd never notice in regular listening, like the intro to Everything Must Change which has a short snip of total silence in all but one channel at one point, which the CD-4 also does, its quite remarkable how it wipes it all out everywhere else.. i guess that's about as discrete as you're ever going to get without playing the tape. there was a nice transfer floating about i think its one Dave or Tab or someone of that ilk maybe did through a modified Fostex or something?
yes! the seller did great! came from Japan in about 4 days, customs etc handled by them, no extra hassle, really well packaged as you say. if it wasn't for the snap and crackles i'd be bodypopping all over the room working up some serious body heat!! 🔥 :dance🔥
