Pye Stereo 4D Series Listening Evaluation





  I have used the Sansui QSD1 and four JBL 150 speakers to test the Records that
do not indicate quad on them.
The first thing I want to say is that the QSD1 does a great job on Stereo 
And I donít always know how the Quad Lp was mixed, It may be an aggressive mix
or a soft surround or Ambiance. All the 4D series seem to Synthesize very well.
I have found that Synthesizing stereo gives a right sidewall and a left sidewall
of sound when displayed on the Scope and now and then the right rear or left
rear may be dominant for 1 to 3 seconds Giving a pseudo Quad effect. So all the
following statements are to the best of my knowledge and if anyone has other
results I will not argue as I am not the great know all.

I have put an **** on a couple of LPs as I am not sure if they are Quad or not
as they are a soft mix not having a strong rear channel solo but a blend. 

I played the LPs that were not marked Quad and marked the ones that are

The  Synthesonic Sounds are strange they are a weak Quad mix if they are Quad
The Classical ones are hard to assess as sometimes they may be Ambiance
