Developed in the 1970s, Quadraphonic audio was the earliest consumer product recorded and presented in surround sound. Deutsche Grammophon was one of a few labels who embraced this new technology. Just as with today’s 5.1 surround sound standard, the goal of the quadraphonic format was to expand the sound using two additional speakers positioned behind the listener. A new 4-channel mixing console design was used for making recordings and special omnidirectional microphones captured the ambient sound on additional channels. Indeed, following the original issue of Steinberg’s and the BSO’s “The Planets”, Stereo Review was to comment that it “heralded a new era in recorded sound.”Though quadrophonic releases were a commercial failure at the time they were issued – due to the high production costs and the costs of the playback equipment, coupled with the technical limitations of cutting the extremely high frequencies into vinyl as well as tracking these without distortion – present-day technology allows us to return to the original tapes and use the Blu-ray Audio format to present these recordings in high definition surround. DG have deliberately chosen not to use any additional sound processing so that the recordings can be heard exactly as their original quadrophonic ambition.
