Dose CDR quality really matter ?

This might be an arbitrary question, but I was wondering dose the CDR's brand or quality matter when burring a cd, and are some CDR burners/ writes better then others.

I have been using Toast Titanium for all my CD writing, and my G4 Mac's cd burner . As far as CD's I use the Maxell 700m.

I feel like I'm always loosing fidelity when I burn a cd, either from a PT session or from a commercial cd

short answer, yes. not for fidelity (it's digital, they'll all sound the same) but for longevity. cheap cd-rs and poorly burned ones will go bad sooner.

you can check out if you really care about the details, but personally i think they spend a little too much energy worrying about it. use taiyo yuden discs and a plextor drive and you should be fine.
