Yamaha F1 and Plextor Plexwriter are the best for audio CDs

i would say blank CDs for audio would be the CD-A blanks.... all the other ones are not manufactured with the same tolerances as the CD-A

No problem.Btw, not sure if you're aware of it but i'm pretty
sure the Maxell Pro's are made for Maxell by Taiyo Yuden.
In other words you are good to go with the cd-r's you have been
using. 8)

Thanks again. I always wondered, since they are made in Japan. Anyhow, I'm very happy with them, but they are getting harder to find. I bought my last "pile" from London Drugs.

Cheers,
Loyd

Ok Hula Pie, here's what I've tried since you began this forum.

1. I downloaded a copy of EAC into my Windows XP system.
2. I set the Express Rip program to the uncompressed format and the attributes to 96KHz/24 bits (which matches the processor in my Cary 308 Tubed CD player).
3. I burned various songs off of my John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers CD's (one CD is DECCA, the other DERAM). Each file (song) is about 81 mega bites! By the way, I used my computer's internal DVD burner.
4. Finally, I loaded the Express Burn program, selected the Mayall songs I wanted, and then loaded the Maxell CD plus (Taiyo Yuden?) into the computer's burner. I selected the slowest burn time which was 39x (which is pretty fast compared to the 8x I usually select with Windows Media 11).
5. Right now, I'm listening to the newly burned CD on my Cary. VERY impressive.

I'll try making some other CD's later. Also, when my wife is out of hearing range, I'll try the "volume" test between the original and the copy.

Thanks to everyone. You've made this an interesting day :wink:
Cheers,
Csiz

Thanks for all the info folks, this is good stuff! I'm still not sure EAC works well with Vista, at least I can't find much on the internet referring to this combo. Think I'll download it anyway and see what happens.

I heard a lot of people have a hard time getting anything to work with Vista. I wonder if that's why Microsoft is replacing it already.

According to what several have said, may I assume this is a decent deal? Good brand, large quantity, competitive price even with shipping.

Thanks

Brian - Is the only difference that you can write on one, and not the other? If yes, that's great. Also, having ordered product from this site, how do you find them? Thanks

I have Epson printer that prints on them , which I use every now & then.
I have used the silver ones as well , easier to read on white background.

I do not know if makes differance but when hold up to light has less transparancey as well with the white ones.

The CDR cases from them are cheap but rather thin & will not buy them again.

Forgot to mention , ordered from them three times no problem.

Brian

somewhat a generality, but if you just check the country of manufacture the japanese ones are higher quality and more reliable, note becoming more difficult to find.

Blankmedia no longer carries MAM-A CD-R gold discs. I have only been able to find them in the States so far, at Mediasupply in PA:

http://www.mediasupply.com/mtc74lsgos-100.html

About US$1.20 a disc for a stack of 100, plus shipping. Would anybody like to share an order?

I have started using this NCH software of late freeware for everything from ripping to needle drops fairly intuitive software. The White paper on CD is an old one from Genesis Loudspeakers some of the brands are extinct. I still use black only for audio ripping. T.
