The Best DVD Media and CD Media
First off, like everything else, we'll preface this article by saying these things change. A month ago we would have picked Mitsui Advanced Media for both our audio and DVD discs. After being acquired by a firm from Italy some suppliers are speculating that quality has gone down and in fact that MAM may be getting some discs from third parties. It's a shame because Mitsui prided itself on complete control of the materials and manufacturing process of its discs. A recent batch of 4x printable media suggests things might be changing. We had trouble getting the media recognized in several of our burners including a Pioneer A05, A07 and Toshiba 5112. The Toshiba surprised us because it seems to be the least picky of drives.

Digital Audio Labs Card Deluxe Review
In the early 90s a high fidelity sound card in a PC was expensive and hard to come by. Not to mention a pain to configure in the early days of Windows. The folks at Digital Audio Labs were the pioneers in bringing truly clean and accurate audio to the desktop PC. And over the years it's nice to see they have stayed focused on quality as their primary objective. Four hundred dollars might seem like a lot of dough to spend on a PCI card with some chips and capacitors spread over its surface. But I'll tell ya, it's worth every penny.
