Audio Format Guide - QUADRAPHONIC (Quad) Records, Reel-to-reel Tapes and 8-Track Tapes

Quadraphonic recordings (four discrete audio channels) represented the highest and most advanced form of spacial audio fidelity of the 1970s.  In fact, quadraphonic recordings were decades ahead of their time.  Due to complicated setups and expensive equipment most people resisted adopting the technology and it all folded.  Too bad it died (and did not produce more recordings), as today, 40 years later, multi-track audio reproduction is the standard.  The Quad recordings produced in the 70s are absolutely amazing!  The lucky few who still have in their collection (or can still get their hands on) Quadraphonic recordings are now able to use our service to play Quad recordings in their full 70s glory!  It you see that your LP, reel-to-reel or 8-track tape is marked QUADRAPHONIC or QUAD it is entirely worthwhile to get the quad recording transferred to CD as a Quadraphonic Conversion. 

It was known as "The greatest sensation of the music world!" - "4 Channel Dimensional Stereo". One final thought: the Quadraphonic technology is exactly the same vintage as the Voyager spacecrafts.  Just as the Voyagers, after performing brilliantly for four decades, are sadly approaching "end of life", our equipment and this service will not last forever.  It is almost impossible to re-acquire, so when it dies this service will forever disappear.  So if you are reading this and have Quadraphonic recordings, best to get it done now.

Please note
that in order to enjoy our Quad CDs you need to have playback equipment capable of playing DTS or DOLBY DIGITAL recordings.  This is most commonly found in Home Theatre setups.  (Please do not order a Quadraphonic Conversion if you will play the CD on a boombox, as it will not work).
