Extended Resolution Compact Discs

Has anyone heard of or even heard Extended Resolution Compact Discs?

Here is something about them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_R … mpact_Disc

Until yesterday I had never heard of them.

Listen to the music, not the hifi.

RE: Extended Resolution Compact Discs

I think they are even less successful than HDCD (of which I have two). Not sure where they were sold, perhaps not in the UK but the format looks like it sort of took off even if it didn't fly very far:

I did find a USA website that sells them for a price most are about $30, there are some on Amazon uk which is where I saw it. One Chinese record label seem to be using this format for recording some albums.

It is also known as XRCD.

Listen to the music, not the hifi.

Ah, HDCD.  I must have a handful too, but I only know because my old player has a little light to tell me.

ERCD is/was new to me too.

Not sure I come across ERCD's but I have a few BSCD2 or Blu-Ray spec CD's. Nice recordings, a bit like SACD quality.
