[QUOTE=evo69;2129406]There’s no more premium media for us CDFreaks if this is true. :D[/QUOTE]Unlike many others, personally I’ve never considered TYG02 as being among the best media available. I’ve had my share of complaints with them, including early degradation of some of them (but never, ever as fast or as consistenly as what’s described in this thread, far from it ).
Low reflectivity leading to mediocre standalone players compatibility, sloppy bonding, poor resistance to scratches or different physical damages… IMO TYG02 are very consistent, burn and scan very well. But that’s not enough, in my book, to make great discs. Of course, people who swear by scans will love and praise them. Which explains the insanely high ratings they always got at CDFreaks.
As I’ve already stated countless times on this board, as far as TY is concerned, my choice is YUDEN000T02 over the rest by a very significant margin. These are great discs in my book.
So about your fear, personally I’d rather express it the day when I see MCC004 aging this fast (without a clear explanation like scratches or smudges, that is).
