I have read some post around in the forum, I am testing in this moment two media:
TDK CD-R XG Audio
Verbatim DataLife Plus AZO
I have burned the TDK at 4x and the Verbatim at 1x.
But, what impresses me is the difference you can hear in sound.
The midrange is more present in the Audio CD and the sound is in general “warmer”.
Are you aware of any CD-R data media whose sound is reproduced better than Verbatim? (I mean warmer)
Just for your information, I am certainly a bit spoilt and difficult, 'cause my main listening source is vinyl, in principle for me CD has never been a quality format, SACD and DVD-A are much better, but that’s another story…
This is to give you an idea why, I am looking for the “best in the worst” in terms of CD-R Media.
