This CD features a good selection of test tones, music, and helpful notes for testing one's audio system.

While this disc can be placed inside a jewel case, they originally were sent out to customers in a double-sided Viewpack plastic sleeve with flap. All the inserts are on one side and the disc on the other. The rear insert for the tray will have a crease because they had to be folded to fit inside the sleeve.
