Q: Why are you called Quadrophonic News?

A: We're glad you asked! This is an excerpt of the wikipedia page on Quadrophonic Sound, explaining a basic summary of what it is:

    "Quadrophonic sound similar to what is now called 4.0 surround sound – uses four channels in which speakers are positioned at the four corners of the listening space, reproducing signals that are (wholly or in part) independent of one another. Quadraphonic audio was the earliest consumer product in surround sound. It was a commercial failure due to many technical problems and format incompatibilities. Quadraphonic audio formats were more expensive to produce than standard two-channel stereo. Playback required additional speakers and specially designed decoders and amplifiers."

We hope that explains it. If not, read on at
