Quad Test CD ORDER FORM Quad Price List TRACK Your Order

 

The greatest sensation of the music world!

4 Channel Dimensional Stereo

      You own some QUADRAPHONIC recordings.  
You don't have all that vintage QUAD equipment to play back your recordings.  
What to do?

ATTENTION!

We bring QUAD to the 21st century! 

Enter Dolby Digital and DTS, multi-channel formats used in movie theaters and many Home Theater installations.  We convert your QUAD recordings to a Dolby Digital (AC-3) or DTS encoded CD.  You place the CD in your DVD (or CD) player, and suddenly you are transported into another world: the world of multi-dimensional surround stereo.  

The sensation:     

Sure, you've experienced explosions and spaceships that move in 3D all around you at the movies.  But if you have never heard a QUAD recording, you have never experienced the unique sensation of being completely immersed in music. (Old QUAD enthusiasts know exactly what I am talking about. . .)

Some day all recordings will be multi-channel.

We are not there yet.  You can wait, then when the technology gets here, you can spend the big bucks to be one of the first to acquire it.  Or, you can get all that today, with existing technology and equipment.

What you need to be able to enjoy your QUAD recordings:

-  A DVD player equipped with a built-in Dolby Digital  or DTS decoder connected to a "home theater" multi-channel amplifier
     or
-  A DVD player connected to a "home theater" integrated decoder (Dolby Digital or DTS) and multi-channel amplifier
     or
-  A CD player with digital output, connected to a "home theater" decoder (Dolby Digital and DTS) and a multi-channel amplifier

Are you scared by the words "home theater"?

Relax!
   
Yes, it sounds expensive.  10 years ago it was expensive. . .  Not any more. . .
   
Best Buy
sells complete "home theater" units (including speakers) for REALLY low prices!
   
Even Costco has joined the "home theater on a shoestring budget" game.  You can get your complete setup from Costco next time you go to buy soda and paper towels.

Please write to info141@avconvert.com if you find any other outlets for low price "home theater" setups.  We will publish your find on this Web site.

The message below is updated each time there is a change in the status of our service.  If you wonder if we are in business, the answer is: Yes we are, and this is the status of our service:

:   Operating at 100%

We are accepting new orders and providing phone and email support.  Orders already into the system, as well as new orders, will be processed in order received, in the shortest possible time.  For 1 week turnaround (or 72 hours), please use one of our RUSH Service options.
We thank all our clients for your tremendous support!
All the best,

Older DVD players do not play audio CD-R's

How to tell if your DVD player (or the player you plan on buying) plays audio CD-R's

The most reliable method: send $4 for our "DVD Player and Dolby Digital and DTS Test CD".  We'll send you the CD.  If it plays on your machine, you know all our conversions will play just fine.  If it doesn't play on your machine, you may be able to get a very cheap unit that will play audio CD-R's.  Take the Test CD  to any retailer and ask them to play the CD.  If it plays, Bingo!  You found your machine.  

Less reliable methods: look in the DVD player manual (or ask Technical Support of the manufacturer, or the retailer) if the player will play audio CD-R's (that is, audio CD-recordables).  Unless you see it printed in the manual, this is less reliable than the "Test CD" because unfortunately some tech support people do not know all the capabilities of their machines.  Even worse, many salespeople have no idea what an audio CD-R is and their answer is a guess (I guess they do, ma'am).  Right. . .

Pioneer DVD Players: we have tested a number of DVD players.  One brand played audio CD-R's across all models: Pioneer.  If you are unable (or unwilling) to go around testing DVD players, get a Pioneer DVD player.  It is a very good brand and all the models we tested played audio CD-R's.  

ATTENTION!
