Quadraphonic sound still lives here in the Basement! Though it is often considered a failed medium, that does not mean it was bad - just ahead of it's time. It has recently been making a comeback under the guise of 5.1 surround sound. But that format was designed for movies: the center channel is for dialogue, not necessary for music - and if you've got a good 4ch amp and four good speakers, who needs a subwoofer? Subtract those from 5.1 and what do you get? 4.0 or "Quad!" You can go to the Basement's link page for more Quadraphonic info and resources. In the meantime, here is a 30 sec. TV spot from 1974 featuring a Panasonic Quad system's happy new owner in "The Expanding Room".
