OK! People here’s the test of how much of a CDFreak you are these discs are at best coming down in price to 5 Dollars So those who buy Low Cost media for 60 to 85 cents if you are really dedicated than your set (yes i know of as time goes by prices drop but remember they getting smart they know there going to get money from you)Wait till BluRaY comes out my guess is at best prices on the Dl blanks on those at best guess and what Sony Corporate will like is 35 Dollars if not more just for single layer BR


Wait i may have spoken too soon look at this I Don’t beleive it ------- "Currently, blank CD-R discs cost 35 Dollars to 40 Dollars each.

Prices for the recorders vary from Seven Thousand Dollars (for the Marantz) to Twenty Thousand Dollars and are going down daily. " ----1992 Article

1996 Article------“It’s a good thing, too, since at that time (in 1992) we were paying almost 40 Dollars per blank! (CD-R blanks generally cost between Six Dollars and Eight Dollars now, depending upon brand and supplier.)” American Dollars. Looks like i could be wrong i hope so.
