thanks for the samples, your Q8 transfer (as Q8's go and its own right) sounds fabulous!Indeed, it's one of my favorite quad discoveries. I thought I knew the mix pretty well from the SQ LP, but the difference between this new tape and the last conversion I did (SQ LP through Tate II) is striking. Check out these samples of the rears-only during the same section of "Inside My Love" - it's no contest comparing the two.
i have to say (with a tinge of sadness, as everyone knows I'm the Surround Master's biggest fan) isolating the Rears on the Q8 (and even the Tate) show up the shortcomings in the SM's SQ decoding on this one, the bleed not just on the CF vocals but cymbal crashes and other stuff that shouldn't be back there is a shame but it is what it is.. and its still the best SQ decoder you can actually buy new today.. so there's that. i'm all about silver linings at the mo (and silver hair now i'm not getting it dyed! sheesh.. who's that old geezer in the mirror! oops.. ha... back to the music, that never gets old.
