My goodness. They are supposed to work hard, no complaining.

guarantee the experiment will have no harm to your equipment, cd or your ears


So, because they were done in the 90s, does that mean they are not valid today? Perhaps those players were more robust as compared to the ones today?

That is a great test to check its G rating durability

Great, now we know what not to do, or do.

Well HIPAR, all the information on the disc has to go through the circuitry that has to deal with 'error's, so in essence, the thing is always working hard.

Needless to say, we all had a lot of fun with the 'working hard' theory.
