I have heard from several sources that very good gold CD-R media can be an upgrade on a regular CD. I tried MAM-GOLD CD-R. For a burner, I own a Plexwriter 1x CD reader/writer which I purchased recently from Aqvox in Germany. I'm using a Cardas USB cable to connect up the Plexwriter (I forget the Cardas model number, but it's their approx. $100 one).
Here's my problem. The CD-Rs I burn have a bit of upper midrange hardness or emphasis and ultimately aren't as good as the regular CD. In fact they are almost unlistenable once I get annoyed with that emphasis.
My transport is a modified PS Audio Lambda II (extensively modified by K Works).
I'm using EAC to rip the CDs.
I actually had this same problem with several other CD writers.
Any ideas what to try?
