    Required listening to anyone with even a passing interest in the roots of electronic music. Curious that the band seemed to be unaware that this mix was even made.

    I didn’t know this was released in quad, but it turns out it’s a great quadrophonic album. Sounds wonderful to my old ears. I could it as a system test source.

    Finally got around to comparing this and the other one I have had for years. There is certainly more detail and clarity in your work. It’s such a pleasure to have the upgrade! Yours wins hands down. Thanks!

    oh yes !! of course Q8 is a discret source…

    that’s it ?

    Hello… and big thanks for this release.

    Sounds further much better than the older one I have also from Q8 in 24-96 4.0 DVD-A.

    May I ask why it’s DS243 and not DS243f ?

      The use of an ‘f’ at the end of the number denodes it was decoded from a matrix source

    Must comment simply on the overall sound quality here as well. This is the cleanest Q8 transfer I have ever heard.

      I have heard better Q8 transfers but this is a good one.

    I’ve never heard any of this album before except snippets of the title track. I really like it, cool music and a slightly understated quad mix which suits the music. A shame none of the other Kraftwerk albums were released in quad.

    Also every time I hear a Q8 transfer my opinion of Q8 sound quality goes up. In the past I’ve been told it’s about the same as cassette, but I’m now convinced it’s better and having investigated I find it runs at twice the tape speed so of course it sounds better (assuming equal quality tape stock etc. etc.)

      Thanks for the comments. As to sound quality, there are certainly more bad sounding Q8’s than there are good ones. This wasn’t too bad.

    Thanks so much for offering this one gratis. It’s an amazing quad mix and this is sure to be an improvement over my older copy.

    I was debating whether or not to “buy” this one when the word
    free came into focus. Thanks for your generosity. Not a fan of electronica but
    Autobahn was fun.
