Which DVD-R is better (for music) Maxell Plus Series OR Broadcast Quality series blanks?
Maxell Japan made DVD-R discs,are always excellent.
old thread, but to answer your question, the Broadcast quality series are better. these are one of THE best DVDR’s EVER, right up there with MAM Gold Archive DVDR’s, although, theyre also pricey, like MAM Gold.
if you want cheaper stuff, go with the Plus series, as they are also good. they are professional grade media, made in Japan by maxell themselves (better than their consumer grade that you find in most stores).
Maxell Plus Series and Broadcast Quality care pretty much the same except Broadcast quality has a scratch resistantoating and they cost 4X more. You can’t go wrong with either of them.
really? i thought they were different.
What about Maxell High-Quality w/Hardcoat Protection? Same as BQ?
IIRC, some Maxell Plus are now Taiyo Yuden’s TYG02, but very good TYG02.
meaning that they are more scratch-resistant than “regular” TYG02 and have no bonding defects?
