    There were several 'quadraphonic' headphones around at the time. They all used two stereo jacks.

    Used to own a quad system back in day. Was a technics if memory serves. Was great at time.
    I've seen one quite like that, was a jvc. You could adjust width and depth of sound as well as phase.
    Cool gear

    Last night I had time to connect up a pair of Royd book shelf speakers , turn it on select radio and tune it into 5 live , sounded very nice , signal strength meter works as well , Later today I will connect up a TT through the phono stage and see what happens , Looking promising

    Old memories; I saw the Floyd in Liverpool Philharminic Hall, when they used a 'Joystick' to send the sound around the room-late 60s.

    Would that be this night? https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/pink-...d-33d76cad.htm
    If so I’m exceptionally jealous,the man and the journey is one of my favourite sets ever,I once had a bootleg of that night but it wasn’t a great recording,65~72 live shows were much better than what was to come post dark side.

    The 'Joystick' was called the "Azimuth Coordinator" by the Floyd. Yes, Floyd in the late '60s - Happy Days.
