I havn’t been keeping up with the play in the last 12 months or so (university has me beat!) - and I come back to see people claiming MIT CMC Verbatims are the ones to buy, and that Verbs > TY these days?
What’s going on?!?!?!?! My world is crashing down around me [ol]
[li]Have TY gone downhill since TYG02 and Yuden T02?
[/li][li]What happened to Verbatim’s “DataLifePlus” moniker?
[/li][li]Do MCC Still make Verbatim discs, and if so, how do they compare now to the Prodisc/CMC/?? outsourced discs?
[/li][li]MIJ a distant memory?
For some reason I just trust Japan more than I trust Taiwan to make something worth buying. I guess a lot of it comes from consumer electronics in the 1980’s and 1990’s where MIJ > anything else, not only because it broke less, provided better quality at what it did, but also especially if you wanted a chance at repairing it if it broke.
Then there was the capacitor electrolyte fiasco of a few years ago, and the CD-R and DVD-/+R to further confirm MIJ superiority…
Has this all changed or am I listening to a select few evangelists of CMC/Verbatim?
