Quadra ABC

In 1980 there was a rather belated attempt in Russia to bring a quadraphonic system to the market. Unfortunately there appeared to be no interest by manufacturers to produce a decoder, and with only one encoded LP released, the project ended almost as soon as it started.

It couldn’t of helped that the system was slightly less complicated than DY & EV-4 some 10 years before, and the performance from the basic, logic less, decoder designs put forward gave very little real Front / Rear separation. In fact it seems the overall aim of the system was to just give the impression of space rather than true quadrophony even though a four channel master was used to create the LP.
