Who are we?

We are a group of guys that have been involved in the compact disc industry for over fifteen years. Yep, we were around when discs were still very expensive and much harder to make. The business has come a long way over the years but the basic technology hasn’t really changed that much since Philips NV and Sony collaborated to make a working product. CD drives are faster, Re-writable discs are available, but the core technology is still the same.

What we do?

A little bit of everything. We are involved in the technical aspects of compact discs, dvd technology, and printing cd/dvd sleeves. We are involved in the business aspects and in packaging and marketing issues. This site is just a side venture, a hobby really, to distribute answers to questions we seem to answer again and again.

We hope you find an answer to your technical questions, historical questions, or general cd industry questions. We believe that all of the information is accurate and representative of the discussed topic. We post articles from guest writers and can’t always verify their information. If you have any suggestions or corrections please e-mail us.
