RE: SQ Quad

I'm not sure how many quad discs total, and my father did not separate them from the rest of his collection (est. 700 or 800 total,) but there are several classical SQ recordings on the Angel label (Beethoven, Strauss, Ravel) Columbia SQ recordings by Paul Simon, Chicago, Blue Oyster Cult, and there are a few on other labels like Vanguard which have quad encoding. My father did have 4 channels set up at one time before it became the norm, but I don't remember a separate decoder, just the effect, which was remarkably enveloping. I can't get that with my current system (which was not set up by me,) and mainly for theater, not music. The Yamaha has Vienna Hall, Roxy Theater, Bottom Line venues, all channel stereo AND DPL 1 or enhanced, but none of them sound natural with records, just movies which have discrete surround. I think my problem may be that I grew up listening to music with earbuds so I'm used to L/R recordings, letting my brain interpolate the spaciousness of the venue :)
