Verbatim are good quality.

Taiyo Yuden is also a very good brand. They make blank media for all sorts of people.

Personally I've had horrible luck with TDK (this was going back a few years) Memorex and Sony.

Those seem to have the highest rate of incompatibility with older cd players.

Burning speed plays almost as big a factor as the media itself I've found.

sorry to go a little off topic...

which cd's that have a good top coating? I've had quite a few cd's already peeling their screen printed labels/metal foil coming off after a couple of years and ruining the cd. and that includes verbatim.

Steve, I used an MB-75 for about three years and I never had a problem with playing CD-R's. The owners manual stated not to use recorded CD's that had the stick on label but that normal CD-R's would play.

Sounds like your laser lens needs cleaning.

thanks guys. I microfibered the lens and verified spec free. as you all might imagine, there were several particles on the lens. Couldnt detect smudges/fingerprints, but I wouldnt have been surprised.

Unfortunately I don't have results to report yet as I only just installed the player. I'll let you guys know.

By the way, did you guys know that all 22 faceplate buttons are connected to the main control board inside the player via two complete resistor ladder circuits? Very interesting.
