New HHB CD-R Media Meets The Needs Of Audio ProsLow speed (1X-12X) discs offer higher levels of performance and reliability (January 14, 2005)
HHB CD-R Media
HHB is now delighted to unveil a new range of CD-R discs, which offer a significantly higher level of performance and reliability in audio recording applications than the current proliferation of high-speed CD-R media. As some users are learning, this high-speed media is primarily designed for data recording, and is consequently not compatible with standalone audio CD recorders, yielding degraded performance and increased error rates.
Unlike conventional media, HHB's new CD-R discs are optimized for low speed 1X-12X writers, delivering consistently low block error rates and low jitter in audio recording applications, while also improving economy by reducing the operating stress on the lower-powered lasers used by audio CD recorders. This optimization results in the total integrity of the recorded data, making it absolutely essential for anyone involved in audio CD recording or duplicating.
Using an improved version of HHB's original specially formulated Phthalocyanine dyes, and with a secure archival life in excess of 200 years, the range comprises both 74- and 80-minute versions in inkjet and thermal printable variations. Both jewel-cased and bulk packed discs are available.
All discs are extensively batch-tested during manufacturing, and checked for compatibility with a wide variety of recorders and players. This compatibility is specifically enhanced by the absolute purity of the reflective recording layer, which is protected from physical damage and the harmful effects of sunlight by a durable lacquer coating.
HHB managing director, Ian Jones, marked the arrival of the new range of CD-R discs by commenting: "In these times of great uncertainty in the recording media industry, HHB remains as committed as ever to innovating dedicated, professional audio recording media of the highest quality. These new CD-R discs are the latest products of a development program that has been ongoing for more than a decade, and audio professionals can be assured that HHB will continue to meet their requirements for specialist recording media far into the future."
The new CD-R discs replace the existing 1X-24X discs in an HHB Professional Recording Media range that also includes CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RAM, MiniDisc, MO, DAT, ADAT and DTRS formats. The original HHB CDR74 Gold 1X-8X disc remains unchanged.
HHB products are distributed exclusively in the United States, Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean by Sennheiser Electronic Corporation. It joins a list of distinguished audio brands that Sennheiser distributes including Neumann Microphones, InnovaSON Digital Consoles, Rosendahl Synchronization Systems, Turbosound Loudspeakers and Australian Monitor.
