[#20] CD碟中見倒有印住IFPI;什麼是IFPI?    
From my limited observation, I guess most of the re-pressed CDs use the same digital master as the first pressing. For example, you can get the same digital master from most (if not all) pressings of the early 鄧麗君 CDs released between 1983-1988 by Polygram (though with a few exceptions), no matter it is a Sanyo pressing, T113 or even later Korea/HK pressings with IFPI codes on disc. I have done digital null tests and this is 100% accurate. Of course, sometimes there are exceptions, but I suspect this is true most of the time.

So, absence of IFPI code is an excuse for speculation (i.e. 炒). You can say different pressings sound different, but then I'm going CAS~

I cannot understand why early CD pressings MUST sound better than later pressings. Silver fall-off or pinholes on Made in West Germany CDs are not that uncommon, and maybe one day all the silver will be gone and the CD becomes unplayable! If the CD could skip, I don't see how good they could sound!

The presence of IFPI code does not automatically tell you that the sound is inferior. Well, there is an obvious decline in CD production quality in general, as it becomes more and more common. But the technology becomes better and more reliable as well. If a certain pressing plant would take good care with the production, I'm sure they can produce good sounding pressings nowadays even with IFPI codes on them.

And re-mastering is not necessarily a bad thing. Catalogues of many important western artists were remastered to excellent results. Recent ABBA or Beatles re-releases are good example. The reason of success is that the labels really cared to look for first generation master tapes, and have them transferred properly and re-mastered to excellent taste by professional re-mastering engineers.

The general bad impression of HK-pop remasters is caused by the bad work done by the incompetent engineers involved, and the lack of investment from short-sighted label executives, who don't even look for the best master tapes, and just use CD as source. I believe these poor practices are sometimes applicable to those expensive "audiophile" CDs as well.

If the HK record labels do not want to invest money and effort to re-master the music properly, I would rather they re-press the CD with good technology and good pressing plant with old digital masters. I believe many of those SHM- or Blu-Spec CDs are exactly this case (which digital master was being used is mentioned on the obi). For example, I would very much like to see the first digital master of 淡淡幽情 re-pressed in Germany to the highest standard and with original artwork. I guess I could dream...

Oh forgive my long post......
