Thanks to a head's up from @J. PUPSTER i was able to find an affordable Michael White Quad LP
Michael White - Father Music, Mother Dance
Yes, it's postable. I have that one, too. Play it as QS.This release sounds interesting, so i picked it up. Not sure if i should post this here; it's a BBC Matrix H LP!?

Easy way to tell. Play the record with thr front channels turned down. Switch back and forth between SQ 4.1, and Involve 4.1. Whichever gives you the most separation between those channels will tell you which system was used.
Yup, I say QS now.I`ll bet it`s QS I always found that if there is no indication of SQ then it`s QS ????
It's always possible to get something of a surround effect when using the wrong decoder, but I've used the technique I mentioned above to make a final determination. It hasn't failed me yet! Looks like it hasn't failed the Pupster, either. My guess is that, although Sansui didn't charge record companies to use their system, they did charge to use the QS logo on their album covers and labels. That's most likely why they didn't say it,Yup, I say QS now.
The SQ is just too vague sounding with virtually no separation. In QS, the vocals are nicely Phantom centered up front with some minor bleed to the rears and what I believe an accordion mostly left rear; also orchestra mainly in rears in QS. Just what stood out on first listen ( was enjoying the music on the first listen and not trying to finely scrutinize yet.) Also, just had time to decode/rip ‘LADO A’ yesterday. Once I finish that and clean it up; I may down rez. it and attach one of the more active 20 second samples in both QS & SQ, for others to hear.
The majority of you folks that visit this thread (sadly, what, only about 45-50 members?); are way more experienced than I am on determining that sort of thing!
I haven't seen any of the Sony CD's, with the SQ logos on them. The SACD's, in the 7" packaged SACD's, they do have the SQ logo, but the CD layer isn't SQ-encoded. As for who has the rights to the SQ logo and system, I'm sure they let the patent expire by now. But Tate-Reber Productions, Gary Reber, in particular, reportedly bought out the rights from CBS. The Buddy Rich double CD set you mentioned, and which I have, refers to "Tate/SQ" on the cover. There was also a David Bowie laserdisc that bore that mention, too.
Oh, one more thing, from a discog search yesterday, I didn’t find any other ‘cuadraphonico’ titles from the embassy label; anyone know of others?

It was my impression that all of these "variations" of RM were intended to be fully compatible with one another. That's why there's only one RM setting on most quad rreceivers.I wouldn't be surprised if most used Sansui encoders!That's true , but it could also be one of the many variations of REGULAR MATRIX as was the case in Japan . And even Dynaquad ?
If QS makes it sound good go for it.
So this was posted by Clement not long ago and I remembered I had left a Tony Mottola at the Record Exchange in their Audiophile record section which is where they park all the quads.Quad Guitars in Quadraphonic Sound – what a concept!
