I think the issue with writing on CDs is that the top is less protected than the bottom. Buying used CDs scratches on the top are less frequent but they frequently ruin the disc because it goes through to the data layer.

Forget vinyl, there's a ton of music that was released on CD that has never been released digitally.

Did anyone ever use DAT tapes outside of live concert recordings? Back in the 90s saying something came from a DAT master meant it was probably very high quality

Of course now I wonder whether the DAT had much to do with it other than tape-flipping issues, perhaps people that could afford to use DAT could also afford better microphones

I mean DAT are still digital. Hard drives have the same operating principles.*

*I have no idea how DAT encodes things, but like, magnets and data.

MP3s are digital too but not lossless.

The problem with SACD is that it might as well be vinyl as far as listening to it in the car or on your PC.
