I was told that copies made on CD-R Black Carbon www.emtec-international.com should offer a more truthful playback.:unsure:

I ripped of and burned a copy with EAC and made an A/B test.

No big thing friends. The carbon CD's shows slightly more dullness compared to a blank CD copy. If the slight dullness is a result of the claimed better light absorbtion on the carbon CD's, I shall leave unanswered.:dntknw:

My system reveales more fun on the normal CD's:cool:

EAC and Black Carbon CD-R

Hi GC.

Key to the issue is the CDROM drive itself! If you don't have the best
drive, your results will suffer. Get yourself a Plextor Premium 2!
Your sound impressions imply jitter-effects to me.

I used to burn Gold-CDs. The result was definately better than the original.

Beside that

I applied CD-Cleaner
Cut the edges and painted the edges and all free areas black
"Demagnitized" the CD
And used a CD mat.
(And don't forget to install a green LED over your drive-head! Though I couldn't apply this tweak.)

Yes - I am not joking here!

Playing a CD without above is like listeing through a towel!

Luckily my CD days are over. Nothing is better than playback from RAM, even my highly modded CDs are far away from being competetive.

Cheers
Klaus

Likely. I have a TEAC CDROM drive in my PC of unknown quality.

Cut the edges and painted the edges and all free areas black

I know. :wink:

He he... :grin:

I would neither base my future playback system on the CD's, but prefere to up-grade when a "plug&play" ultimate user friendly SW is ready for the use of mortal amateurs like me... :pleasantry:
