Why this quadro mix sounds so natural and effortless as opposed to some contemporary 5.1 mixes? Is this because it was meant for quadro i.e. four equally important channels, reproduced by four identical speakers as opposed to 5.1 that is mostly stereo + center/vocal + 2 tiny rear speakers for special effects? If that's the case I want quadro back and wonder how many more quadro mixes are out there in recording studios' archives?
It is almost unimaginable that now when we have the technology to easily reproduce the editional channels plus the higher resolution of SACD/DVD-A record companies are not racing to re-release their quadro productions in collectors edition SACD???
