We Sound Better
Sound quality is our passion. We use vintage equipment that was originally created for high fidelity audio CDs. Over the years, newer equipment has been developed to manufacture discs faster and more cheaply in order to appease the mass-market CD-ROM industry. Honestly, discs made on these new machines just don’t sound that great, which is why we stand behind our TrueSound™ process.
We create all of our glass masters in real time (1x speed) directly from your original master, which decreases the possibility of transfer loss. Some of the best mastering engineers in the business have helped us optimize and customize our system. In addition, we injection mold our discs with high quality polycarbonate for up to 4x longer than other manufacturers which decreases playback correction errors.
