I don't know a lot about it, but doesn't the recording contain "spatial cues" in it self so when played back on a correct setup stereo system the "three dimensional effect" is still there?For some people, 'getting as close to "the original" as possible' requires something like quad.
Particularly if one (such as myself) listens mostly to 'live' recordings that were done in some sort of concert situation, whether it be at a stadium, a concert hall, a Gasthaus (also called Gasthof, Landhaus, or Pension) or just outdoors somewhere.
I mean a proper recorded concert album sound 3D to me on my two speakers so much that when I hear the crowd "hissing" when my eyes are closed it sounds like the sound is 360 °.
On the same system I also have proper center imaging as well so the one doesn't exclude the other.
