Re: [ARSCLIST] DVD-R recommendations?

  I've found the Taiyo Yuden DVD-Rs to be more reliable than other brands I'd tried.  With some other brands, I was having as much as 15% "failures," defined as any noticed visual problem not present in the original.  With the T-Y Premium DVD-Rs, it's down to 1-2%.  On my current spindle of 100, I've used about 75 and had no noticed problems.
  This reflects only my personal usage and is not intended as any institutional endorsement of any product.

I am preparing to archive a large number of 24/96 audio files to DVD-R. I am looking for recommendations for types and/or brands of DVD-R discs. Are gold discs worth the extra expense? Any particular manufacturers with proven track records for reliability?
With CDR media I have had good luck with Mitsui/MAM-A and Taiyo-Yuden, but I haven't done much work involving DVD-R to date.
