Interesting to compare to the discrete DTS CDs of the series...

The DTS CDs as I understand it are taken from quad sources, not decodes. The CDs themselves are DTS, so discrete once decoded. That said, I don't think the original mixes are all that active.

you know? I have never heard these!!!
Yes, most definitely, we shall compare and contrast (like my beloved Art Teacher at Berklee, the late great Henry Augustine Tate, used to say!)

My memory is not to be trusted on anything these days, and I don't seem to have written anything down about this, so I can't footnote it. But I think I recently came across a claim by @4-earredwonder that the 5.1 DTS-CD versions of the Martinon Debussys and Ravels have ambient-only rears--even if they were sourced from quad.

kap's SQ script "decodes" of the Debussy RBCD reissues, meanwhile, have a lot of seemingly discrete content in the rears. I don't know that it's ever been definitively proven that those CDs were SQ-encoded or if it's just a happy accident that they responded so well to Lucanu's script, but in either case it's hard to gainsay kap's results! Hoping the SACDs are similarly "encoded" and mastered even better.

Most of the EMI/ANGEL QUAD LPs except for a scant few, had ambient only rears. Even the few EMI QUAD MLP DVD~A discs released had ambient rears.
