yup, they're SQ and CD-4.  my only quad LP is jefferson airplane....it's CD-4 and i've never played it, i don't have the gears.  i've never heard the cosmic jokers, if you like it i'll have to check out an album (if i can find a CD copy LOL).  nowadays, DSP decoders sound very, very good even with 2-channel source...but nothing beats a well done true multichannel mix.  the metallica dvd-A has some amazing moments in the mix that don't sound the same if simply up-sampling the 2-channel version of the album.

 

they still do those planetarium shows (or at least did in the late 80's), when i was a teenager we used to go see them...trippy stuff ;)

Quad headphones. You wonder if gaming headphones could match up to the 4 channel headphones of years gone by?

Yep, better to use a surround sound audio processor and/or software with a good pair of headphones.

Galactic Supermarket was an album made for folks to trip to. It extended the high. Though not for all listeners in a normal metal state.rolleyes.gif

The definitive Krautrock documentary. Amazing Harmonia's studio still in one piece being built in 74.

^^^^^appreciated:D

I think Fotis Bernardo from Septicflesh might be an underappreciated drummer. Look how stupid tight andintricate he is live! Flawless performance.

 

This was at the concert I was at, too!

Also, I am so psyched for this Spectral Lore/Nachtreich split:

 

 

If nothing else, the bits from 3:20-7:17 are whats got me hyped. True intersection of black metal and classical elements. I always love it when a band (or bands, in this case) do it right.

Oh hell yeah. I love it. Makes everything sound brutal on every pair of headphones and it takes up barely any desk space. It's a beautiful thing indeed.
