More often than not acquiring a collection of vinyl records and the equipment necessary to play them is expensive and inconvenient. How does one recreate that unmistakable sound with CDs? Let’s dive into the topic of enriching the sound of your CDs and why, even with all the benefits of modern technology, digital audio doesn’t quite measure up to old standards.
Cheat to win, or how to get the “analogue” sound without vinyl
“Remember the good old 1980s, when things were so uncomplicated…” No, that’s not me rambling, those are actually the opening lyrics to Electric Light Orchestra’s “Ticket to the Moon”, but this line might as well be a motto for a lot of “old school” audiophiles. Modern technology is strange: we can construct self-driving cars and AI that learns by itself, but a half-decent stereo seems to be a rarity these days. There are plenty of reasons for that, the primary one being that people aren’t generally too picky about the quality of what they are listening to, which is why streaming services thrive these days despite the compressed sound and loss of range; also, since no one cares too much, audio equipment is generally not worth the price you pay for it (hence the need to search music forums for information, as better equipment is often cheaper, but not as well-known). These reasons push a large group of audiophiles to buy vinyl records and turntables, as they don’t trust CDs to give them the musical experience they crave.
While they do have a point, not everyone has the means to own and maintain their own vinyl record vault. The whole setup will definitely cost you a pretty penny, you need a good place to store them and, of course, cleaning and treatment measures are necessary. That requires a lot of time and effort, and most of us simply don’t have that. So if a transition to vinyl is impossible, how does one get CDs to sound just as good?
Well, you still have to get some decent equipment. You can find many guides on the Internet on the topic of picking the right amps, cables, speakers etc. With appropriate equipment purchase, you need to pick a room (an important part, as different “acoustic settings” of a given room will greatly influence the sound produced by the speakers). Even with an amazing hi-end audio setup and a fitting room, we are still left with one major problem: the CDs themselves.
The inner workings of compact discs
The reason audiophiles desire better CD audio quality has to do with the processes that happen when a CD is being played. What you end up hearing (even with great, high-quality gear) is not exactly what you were supposed to hear. That’s because during the reading of the digital data on the disk and its transformation into an analogue signal, electrostatic fields can interrupt the process and “corrupt” the signal. It becomes distorted, impaired, and in worst cases that can cause weird and unpleasant sonic glitches and artifacts that certainly won’t contribute to your enjoyment.
Solving the problem
So how does one go about squeezing the best sound out of CDs, if the root of the problem is beyond our reach? That’s the question we at Chisto had to ask ourselves, and it seems we found the answer. Since the distortions are caused by electrostatic fields, we simply need a powerful disk static killer, right? Enter Disk Analoguer – a special agent that specializes in disk static elimination. The formula used in the product has record-setting static dissipation time, therefore the signal comes out far less distorted and corrupted than before; this results in better audio quality, giving you the impression of a vinyl record being played.
DVD technology is similar to CDs, and during play, it shows a similar issue. We assume you wouldn’t want your favorite masterpieces of cinematography spoiled by visual glitches and dimmed colors; thankfully, our Analoguer displays the same results on DVDs (and blu-rays, where data density makes the problem stand out even more), resulting in significant quality improvement; thus, a disk static killer has a multipurpose role.
Of course, you might have your concerns: after all, if the solution is so easy, why hasn’t anyone thought of it before? Well, this has to do with the sensitivity of digital electronics. Concentrated chemicals can cause permanent damage to any disks, which is why countless tests were conducted in order to perfect the formula used in Analoguers. A disk static killer isn’t only required to be effective – it needs to be absolutely safe. You can’t really enhance the sound of a CD if the CD in question has been damaged beyond repair.
So, if spending tons of money on vinyl records isn’t for you, Disk Analoguer is a disk static killer that brings the necessary formula for vastly magnify joy from music and movies.
