Fascinating! Thanks for posting this.
Do you know if there is a difference between CD-Rs and the old consumer
CD-DA format, which supposedly has "pre-grooved" media? I have heard
reports of these sounding better and/or being less error-prone.
There is a primer on CD recording at my WWW site with much of the
information we have been reiterating here; it may be more convenient to
check there rather than burden this list and its archives with the material.
Every CD-R carries a spiral 'groove' in the polycarbonate. The beginning
of the spiral is modulated with the ATIP - basic information such as the
nominal manufacturer, the nominal length of the disc and the supported
burn parameters (max speed, sometimes min speed, strategy).
The CD-DA format has never changed. The "pre-groove" is always present.
You can hear whatever you wish by 'listening' on the Internet.
Occasionally, you will even encounter truth. The problem is recognizing
it when it arrives.
