Media Supply is the largest distributor of Mitsui/MAM-A disc products in the world. Believe us when we tell you that this is no small feat. In case you haven’t noticed, MAM-A CD-R costs about twice what your normal Taiwanese-made CD-R would. Mitsui/MAM-A customers are a different breed. They are very knowledgeable about their specific use of CD-R.
Why is it better?
#1 The Dye
Since the laser which records the data burns the dye, it is a key aspect of the technology required to manufacture a high-quality CD-R. Indeed, One of MAM's greatest strength lies in its use of the patented Phthalocyanine, the best organic dye currently available.
#2 The Surface
Mitsui/MAM-A discs feature their own “Diamond Coat” surface, which resists scratching and fingerprints. Unlike a pressed CD-ROM, normal CD-R processing leaves the most vital area the most vulnerable. Just below that lacquer surface & reflective layer on top of your disc is the precious dye layer, which is what stores all your data. Scratch the top, and you’ve got a problem. Mitsui/MAM-A Diamond Coat is an extra hard surface that keeps the data safe.
#3 The Consistency
Every disc Mitsui/MAM-A makes is made to the center of the Orange Book standard. They don’t cut any corners with shorter stacking rings (causes static), thinner reflective layers (poor playback on old readers, or dye (100-300 year life vs. 10-30)
