Extended Resolution Compact Discs
English

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.

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.

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.
