Thanks for the heads up BoogieBlues. That's a good price... especially for Audio discs.

Come on man, you know as well as I and everyone else does, that there is no difference between disks marked Audio and Data. Nonetheless, that is a pretty good deal on TY disks in-store with no rebtates. Problem is is that you have to be a Sam's Club member...

That's not really true- audio disks have a levy that goes to the RIAA or GEMA or whatever other group claims to be representing recording artists. So they're more expensive to start with.

Technically, there wasn't any difference in the past. And of course you can use audio discs for data (but not data disks in a hifi recorder). Now, with 52x recorders being the norm, it's hard to sell any media aimed at low speed recording to anyone else than those locked into 1x or so for Hifi recorders.

Audio Disk

Postby BoogieBlues on Fri Oct 17, 2003 12:42 pm

They are Audio Disk which is a plus for me because I have a Philips dual tray standalone that I hook up Opticaly to my Roland 1680 to burn the master disk for our bands songs...the Philips has to have Audio disk...Than I make copies on my 2 PC's....these TY's at Sams are only 32X but thats fast enough for my use....as far as being a member of Sams Iam not....But everyone probably has a friend that is....LOL....Big John

Actually, I know better than you. If you're using them in your computer, that's true. However many stand alone CD recorders REQUIRE that you use the special audio discs.

I did not know that. I always wondered why they were more expensive, since they didn't seem to be any "better" (at least in my PC) than data disks.

Now I know (and knowing is half the battle).

Thanks.
