As I remember it, there were a number of single-stylus quad vinyl disk technologies on the market, mostly incompatible with each other other than for playing in (usually degraded) stereo. There was SQ, QS, Stereo4, Dynaquad, and CD-4, maybe a few more. Only RCA's CD-4 (possibly the least commercially successful of them!), used a supersonic carrier.

The only one I have is Sun Ra "Space is the Place" sounds fine to me. Surround sound is not on my radar.

Yes it did. And some rather well engineered recordings, masters and pressings. All the quad LPs I have are of good quality, better than the average LP. I just listen in stereo.

Default So close, and yet...

So whatever happened to this thread kids? We were gonna open the thing and post photos. We had discovered it's a low pass filter.

Then nothing....

So what happened? Did you ever get one open? Corporate lawyers get a hold of you? Sent you a couple hundred bucks to keep quiet?

This thread is a serious cliffhanger! What happened? Where are the rest of the tests?

Was there some legal action taken to silence the critics?

Great thread so far...
