Yes......................I have missed the discussions where I contend that pressed CDs sound better than burnt ones.

Say what?

I recently threw out all my burnt CDs, which were done in the late 90's. About 90% had deteriorated and were no longer readable. And that was a variety of different popular branded media.

Hi All,

 

Would have to be about a decade ago when I had a Honda Accord Euro, using a DAP these days.

I have "thousands" jazz CD-Rs and only two have deteriorated over the last 2 decades and have faults on some tracks.

I always had Plextor burners (have at least dozen of them still in the garage) because they always gave me excellent results and played just as good as burned ones.

I haven't burned any for some years though.

Recently I upgraded a Sony 300 CD Mega Storage to 400 CD unit and listed to them all twice to pick the 400 most liked.

Useful in the workshop when working on stereos.

Speaking of USB....................................I played a stick in my new van and it was woeful.................so that's why I was thinking of burning CDs again.......................and then I remembered.................I have an old iphone 5 in the drawer................................so I loaded it with songs (@44.1) and its DAC sounds much, much better!

Anyone who is still burning CDs, I've got 21 of them for free for pickup in Carlton.
