Best CDR for Audio CD backup?


Guys,
Just wanted to know what you guys are using for backing up the original audio CDs. I always used to make a copy of the original and store the original safe. i know I can make a flac backup, I have started that, but I dont want to play the original CD and screw it.

I always used TDK gold CDs 3-4 years back. Now, when I tried shopping, all you get is Sony or Moser and both dont inspire confidence for me. I did come across Kodak gold which is used by studios for making digital copies so bought them at 10 for 200 rs.

So whats the best you guys have come across or buy these days and what the price?

Re: Best CDR for Audio CD backup?

Hi,

I was using Imation 250 CD pack bought from Dubai by my sister's husband, and now has been using TDK which is again bought from Dubai. I find the quality of the TDK to be good.

Cheers!

Re: Best CDR for Audio CD backup?

Hai MBR,

You can get Vertabim as well as TDK CD-Rs at Ritchie street. I used to buy them from a shop, near Shah Electronics( Maxine Dealers) , along the same row. It is a small shop they deal only with media products( DVDs,CDs , Pen drive etc.). I use Verbatim CD-R for Audio purpose. They cost about Rs.90/- for 10s pack. I dont know the TDK Pricing, must be about the same.

N.Murali.

Re: Best CDR for Audio CD backup?

I use CD-R occasionally after I got D2X.
I have used writex,Samsung,Moserb,sprint CD-R without any problem.
For other format burning on DVD-Sony, Moser,even National without any problem.

Re: Best CDR for Audio CD backup?

I recently discovered Mitsui Gold archival quality cdr’s. Far superior to the sony I was using earlier. The copy sounds as good as the original.
Amazon.com: MAM-A Gold Archive - 25 x CD-R 650 MB ( 74min ) 52x - jewel case - storage media: Electronics

Re: Best CDR for Audio CD backup?

Moser Baer is OEM for many of the big names, if you buy any of the big name brand CDRs you may probably be purchasing MB as they are a oem supplier to all big names. I don't know if people are being prejudiced against Indian brands. They are certainly not deficient in quality.
Try the MB gold CDs. I've one CD burnt at 4xspeed with *excellent* results!!

Cheers

There's nothing wrong with MB Gold but the sound tends to be NOT warm. AZO has shown consistent results & now a standard CDR at Abbey Road Studios where I saw them using it all over the place. Upon questioning the Studio engineers & Mastering engineers, they all claimed they are indeed happy with AZO CDRs.
I haven't heard SQ of AZO so can't comment on that. But becoming OEM and being part of "preferred vendor" list to ALL global brands involves strategy not operational ad-hoc decisions like you put it. And the strategy begins with achieving technological and manufacturing quality with an investment in crores in R&D, personnel and research.

So I believe the reasons for choosing another foreign brand * at a cost penalty* would be purely subjective as almost everything in Audio.

Regards
