Where to get genuine Taiyo Yuden CDR in the UK

I am looking to get some TY CDR’s in the UK and previously I have gone to River Pro Audio, who now only seem to do printable versions (would the silver/green printable ones be OK for normal use)
Or SPV who again seem to mainly sell printable versions.
Can anyone recommend where is the best place to get TY in the UK at the moment


if I understand correctly, then you’re after non-printable TY CD-R?

What about Verbatim Pastel then? SVP has them in stock, you might also find them in some local store.


I don’t know if SVP is the cheapest place to get Taiyo Yuden CD-R media in the U.K. but they have a wide selection, prices are reasonable, and they have great customer service.

Verbatim Pastel 48x CD-R (Taiyo Yuden)

Mediastar CD-R (Taiyo Yuden)

(Non-branded) Taiyo Yuden CD-R

If you look in brick-and-mortar stores, you may be able to find Verbatim Pastel CD-R (always Taiyo Yuden) or Verbatim Extra Protection CD-R media Made in Japan (always Taiyo Yuden if Made in Japan, but other varieties made elsewhere also exist).

I’ve heard SVP are good for UK users and those Verbatim Pastels are TY discs and are really good quality. If you don’t mind that they aren’t printable, you can’t go wrong.

There seems to be a lot of Verbatim branded TY CD-R around at
the moment. Look for made in Japan Verbatims. Try Staples,
Currys and Pissy World. They even have them in our local

Most of the specialist on-line suppliers like SVP stock

It’s a great shame those Plextor’s went… :frowning:

Yup. Grabbed 100 from Staples yesterday.

ROTFL @ “Pissy World” :bigsmile:

:bigsmile: :iagree:
I was in our local one wasting some time the other day and all of their Verbatim Media was MIT and MIJ thrown on the same shelf, I did not look at the CDr side but it could have been the same. I have not got any new CD media for a long time as I got 4x 50 Plextor branded from SVP
Disc type: : CD-R
Manufacturer: : Taiyo Yuden
MID : 97m24s01f

It was the same in Staples with the CDR at least, no MIJ DVD media :iagree:

In fact I only spotted one MIJ CDR spindle, my mum spotted the (only) other one…people must have thought she was nuts, feeling all the spindles to see if they were TY cakeboxes (she didn’t have her glasses on) :bigsmile:
