As I recall, quad phonograph records came out in the late 60s, at a time
when two-channel stereo records were still pretty new.  A lot of people
just weren't willing to junk the two-channel equipment they had just paid
a pretty penny for.  And for anyone living in an apartment or dorm, quad
stereo may be difficult to enjoy without disturbing others down the hall.
