Who makes phthalocyanine CDR's

Does anyone know what CDR brand names are the ones that have the 7 layers of Phthalocyanine die? Are these the ones that the professionals CD makers use? What type of die are compatible with what hardware? (computer, home CD player, ect.) Anyone know a manufacturer or a distributor for these?

Where does this info of the Phthalo dye ( not die ) come from ?
Where did you get the magic number of 7 from ?

Thanks for the info! What Taiwan company is that? How would you expect the quality of the 80Min 700MB CDR 48x A Grade Silver Silver US$ 0.19 to compare to that of Taiyo Uden? I heard that 7 dye layer of silver-silver is the best you can get.
