My vintage Pioneer PD-91 plays red book CDs perfectly. My Arcam CD players also play CD-R but the Pioneer doesn't like them - they sound perfect but the music is interrupted by spikes/stutters a few times a minute and I'm concerned I might do some damage to the player. (FYI: all my CDs have been uploaded via iTunes and are stored as ALAC files on my Synology NAS. When I want to take a copy of a CD I just burn a CD-R from iTunes). I have had a poke around t'interweb and it seems the problem is nothing to do with format (like CD-RW which many older players don't like) but all down to the difference between how commercial CD's are "pressed" and how domestic CD-R's are made. And that ultimately manifests itself as the reflectivity of the surface, specifically lack of reflectivity on CD-R's. Someone has suggested Sony discs might be better than most and I'm happy to give that a shot though I suspect the issue is one of design not brand. I would appreciate any other suggestions. Otherwise I'll just need to stick to playing original CDs on the PD-91. Which is fine, though if I take my vintage rig to Scalford 2018 it would have been nice to have a disc of my favourite tracks rather than swapping discs every time... Thanks, Nigel
