I read that JVC changed to using tai yuden discs back in 2009. I figured that would mean that they would be removing them from all the shelves in the USA. I went to the store and looked for JVC and where before they had them, once the sold all the old stock was sold, they stopped carrying JVC. I like that JVC decided to use tai yuden discs. But why would they do so when it means there discs can no longer be sold in retail outlets in the USA and probably other countries as well?
