I know shades of green on the inside of my cd cover makes a difference. Also the finish like flat or mat or semi-gloss is also evident. The topper I use is metallic and covers the entire cd including the edges. The top side I treated with AVM after double cyro treatments of the cover itself. With this going on there need be no cd paint jobs only cryo the disc itself which is permanent. I will try the stripes as well even with the cover.Tom
You people don't make any sense. Really? OK.
Personally for the the method described by Geoffkait works best on psychedelic music cd's. On all other cd's the music sounds unidirectional.
Swanny why would this not make sense? A cd player uses laser light and light is either refracted or absorbed by various colors so it's not a stretch to think color treatments might have an effect. Not going to bother trying it myself but I don't doubt there might be an effect.
Actually coloring the discs goes WAY beyond cryo, you could say light years. All my CDs have been to the lab and back.
When giving rebuttal, you are to follow with your counter.
Jond is right on target; as the wavelength of the color green, causes it to reflect only green and to absorb every other color in white light's spectrum.
The underside layer of my cd cover I already had painted green..so I could put a purple stripe east and west and an orange strip north and south all on the cover. This way I wouldn't have to paint each disc. I have several of these covers I had made so I have many for comparison. Thanks for laying the thought. Tom
Tom, no matter how well you have painted the tray and/or the cover, you still need to paint each CD. You can't fool Mother Nature.
What shade of green works best? Darker or lighter? Middle of the road?
I originally found my CDs sounded slightly less harsh (less high frequency gruunge) when painted with a common green paint Uni Posca paint pen.
I used those for a few years, then graduated to common green Sharpie pens. Then to black Sharpie pens.
ALL my CD and DVD outer edge are covered with one of the three.
I have never noted any difference between the three types.
As for multi colors I will pass. i am certain some folks find different colors affect the sound. I am not intereted in finding out.
I would not waste a nickel to see if a purple or orange affects the sound.
And NO I am not even slightly curious to try it.
Not even a teeny weeny bit?
If someone PAID me $25,000. to try out purple and orange color on CD edges YES I would be a teeny weeny bit interested.
We're constantly on the lookout for tunas that taste good, not tunas with good taste. Put another way, never up never in.
BREATHES there a woman with soul so dead who never to herself hath said, "There must be something better than this run of the mill crappola? Whose heart hath ne'er within her burn'd for more than this commercial generic sound?
C'mon, Elizabeth + others, GEoff's new CD coloring product is only bidding for a buck here at present. Get'em while they're hot! Kid's would love it! Might be the ticket to get them interested in audio.
My cover covers the edges and the entire disc..My cover is green on the the entire flat surface and the inside lip. Leakage?
Geoff is out of the loop. Chicken Of The Sea has been around for a long time.
Thank you, Charlie. You can tell he's got it goin on with that hat and those 'Cheap Sun Glasses'.
Csontos, I'm giving some serious consideration to promoting you to associate shill. Welcome aboard, sailor!
Is this an informal confession(finally), or am I in for the 10%, skipper? I'd be happy with the confession.
Would anyone care to post a link to pictures of this method?
