Then the CMC rep is an idiot.
- "Sony" isn't a manufacturer of discs, and hasn't been in many years. It was Daxon Taiwan (good) + Malaysia (not good) for years, and last I knew, it was RitekF oxonol dye. Daxon is out of business now. All Sony media is a simple rebadge.
- Taiyo Yuden uses neither cyanine or AZO in its discs, from what I remember. It's a unique organic dye. In fact, it's because it's not using AZO that causes it to have lower reflectivity that MCC media. As far as I know, cyanine dye is light purple and was only found in Princo media years ago.
Pepst can probably confirm this.
* I'm going completely from memory here. We have lot of docs to look up on this, but the server is down for maintenance right now. And to be honest, I'm busy with client projects, so unfortunately I can't spend lots of time on such research. Maybe later. This is stuff I want to publish on this site eventually.
Here's a post on this forum from a few year ago: http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/medi...-dvd-dvdr.html
We've been discussing blank media for years. Find the posts. They're here! Many of these topics are not new, especially the more advanced ones. That specific conservation was going to lead to publishing our research, but due to health issues, we had to delay it at least a year or more.
I can appreciate that you want to learn, and we like that around here. But you need to read what we put in posts, as well as research past conversations on this topic. You've been asking some of the same questions over and over again.
