A couple days ago I bought a Harmon Kardon CDR 20 standalone CD burner. I'm planning on starting a huge collection of audio CD-Rs. The sound quality, compatibility, and longevity is extremelly important to me so I've spent the last couple days absorbing a tremendous amount of information about audio CD-Rs on the Internet. I had purchased 1000 Memorex 40X AUDIO CD-Rs for this project, but I've come to the conclusion that I should probably get some different media based on what I've read. CD ID says the manufacturer is ProDisc which I've read some very good and some very bad things about. I've also read that media rated 40X can be pretty bad too. The best manufacturers seem to be Ritek, Taiyo Yuden, TDK, and Mitsui. I really don't want to buy any rebranded CD-Rs as they seem to change manufacturers a lot. Would you guys agree that these are the four best manufacturers? Where can I get a good deal on AUDIO CD-Rs from any of these manufacturers that are not rebranded?
