What is the most expensive compact disc in the world?
It’s no secret that vinyl and
compact discs are quick to deteriorate and become damaged or just plain worn and
will no longer give off the sound that is desired by ardent music fans. In 2007
a Japanese recording engineer by the name of Suenori Fukui came up with a
solution to the problem by creating a CD that will also provide the highest
quality sound. This CD is made entirely of glass and it is the most expensive
compact disc in the world.
Some of the biggest problems with plastic CDs and
vinyl records are that they scratch easily, the stereo laser cannot read them
properly, and they can also become warped when sitting in a warm or humid
environment. This glass CD resolves all of those problems. Because it is glass,
which is clear, the stereo laser will have no problem reading them. Glass is
also known to be less likely to scratch than plastic and heat and humidity are
no longer a factor when it comes to glass.
The first CD to be placed onto glass was Johann
Sebastian Bach’s “Air on G String,” and it was sold by N&F Label. The public
however, doesn’t seem to be eager to jump at the chance to own their favourite
artist on glass CD. This is probably because one CD costs 98,700 yen,
approximately $883 USD. Or it could be because glass does break quite easily and
with the way most of us treat our CDs, they still wouldn’t last for too long.
