    Save yourself some money and just get this instead of the overpriced UK quad, this sounds exactly the same.
    Fantastic

      Holy smokes I just found an NM Quadrophonic copy of this at my local Toronto store. Psyched!!

        As someone who went deaf as a teenager listening to the CD, the mix here is subtly different and does present a better soundstage than the digital version. Glad I was able to get this.

          This record is absolutely mind-blowing. It smashes my 30th Anniversay cut to pieces. The biggest craziest 3D soundstage ever! Also dead silent vinyl after a good clean. So, so, so good!!!!

            Listening to it now and it still sends chills down my spine. The sound/mix is really incredible, even if you only have a 2 speaker stereo system.

              This pressing decodes nicely into 4 Channels, but requires the use of a SQ decoder for maximum effect. However, you can get away with using a Dolby Pro Logic decoder, but the soundstage will be messed up.

                Looking at our copy of this disc I see that the A-2 & B-2 suffixes are actually: A-2 & A changed by hand into a B-2.The 'A' is stamped and is clearly visible under the hand scratched B ! Check yoyr copy-even without a magnifier.

                  Very nice version of the "record of records". Extra care was taken with the pressing, I'm sure, as it was produced for Quadraphonic systems; as a result the pressing is of very high quality. Sound is dynamic, with tight bass and excellent sound staging.
