    I found 20 packs (with color cases) on sale for $9.95 at my local Houston area Wallmart last month so I bought one. Been burning them in my PC for audio CD's (from mp3 & flac files) at 8x (Nero Burning Rom) for mp3's & 2x (flac files) using the free version of Winamp which won't burn above 2x unless you pay for it. All play fine in any CD player I put them in. Even my Durabrand portable player which has noise on tracks burned on CMC discs. The sony's play perfect in that player!

    Here is Nero's CD-DVD speed info.

    Manufacturer : Sony
    Code : 97m24s11f
    Disc Type : CD-R
    Usage : Audio
    Recording Layer : Dye Type 1: Long Strategy (Cyanine, AZO)
    Recording Speed : n/a
    Capacity : 79:59.74
    703 MB
    Additional Capacity : n/a
    Overburn Capacity : not tested

    Notice there is no max burning speed listed. I haven't tried them above 8x so I don't know what the maximum speed is.

    2x disc quality info.

    I might post 8x results later. Oh this is with an Emprex 52x CDRW drive I was given. Haven't tried burning these discs in the Plexter DVDRW drive yet.

    Tried burning two audio CDR's (with the color Sony audio discs) at 16 & 32x with the Plextor DVDRW drive (instead of the Emprex 52x CDRW) & they both played fine on the home stereo, the truck CD player as well as the Durabrand (walkman type with headphones) portable player. I'd guess these Sony discs are 48 or 52x quality media even though audio CDR's aren't marked with a speed. Have 10 to go & even though I could burn data on these (I'd rather use DVDR's for that) I'll use them for audio & buy more if I can get them on sale (when my TY discs run low) since I'm only using CDR's for audio now.
