Optimal Media GmbH

Optimal Media GmbH

Profil:
German full-service media manufacturer, operating under this name since October 1, 2011.
Formerly operating as Optimal Media Production.

Matrix scheme:

XY#####-ZZ
(Single letter format identifier, followed by single character year identifier, followed by a five-digit numeral code, followed by an appended two-digit disc numbering – without spaces).

X is the format identifier:
"A" = CDs
"B" = Vinyl records
"D" = DVDs or Blu-ray Discs
"E" = Blu-ray Discs

Y is the manufacturing year identifier, since 2010 is a single letter (A to Z):
(before 2010, see Optimal Media Production)

A = 2010
B = 2011
C = 2012
D = 2013
E = 2014
F = 2015
G = 2016
H = 2017
I = 2018
J = 2019
K = 2020
L = 2021

After the 5-digit numeral code, the 2-digit disc numbering (ZZ) can be found, which starts at "01".
On multi-disc releases, the last digit usually incrementally rises by 1 for each disc. (Example: Disc 1 = 01, Disc 2 = 02, etc.)

Examples:
CD: AB57815-01 manufactured by optimal media GmbH
DVD: DC83784-01 manufactured by optimal media GmbH
Vinyl: BJ78101-01 A1

Notes on CDs/DVDs:
• CD and DVD releases additionally carry a "manufactured by optimal media GmbH" string next to the matrix number.
• If the production was done for a manufacturing broker (e.g., Handle With Care), the string often is replaced with the name of the broker.
• The plant's mastering SID codes are: ifpi/IFPI L571, L573, L574, L575, L576, L577, L578, L622 LZ09.

Notes on vinyl records:
• The matrix number can be either machine-stamped or hand-etched.
• If initials of a mastering engineer (see the list below) appear next to the matrix number, you can also enter the Lacquer Cut At role for Optimal Media GmbH.
• If there are no mastering engineer initials present, the mastering / lacquer cutting was done externally.
• Due to the nature of the hand-etching, the B (format identifier) might be mistaken for a 3, an 8 or a D. Also, G as the second letter, year identifier, can often be confused with the number 9. The numeral 1 can be mistaken for a 7 and the 5 can be mistaken for a √.
• The etched matrix may appear to have spaces but is in fact always without spaces (= BG12345)
• Vinyl releases additionally carry the side positions along with an additional digit, next to the matrix number (see the example below).
• There are sometimes additional, faintly inscribed "geometric" marks. These are added during plating, and are therefore mirrored. They consist of a digit and a symmetrical symbol such as I, +, =, △ (for example, I ↾ ). Enter these with the runout string in their non-mirrored form (e.g., "1 I"), and note their form in the Release Notes (e.g., "1 I mirrored in runouts").
• In 2020, matrix numeration reached number BK99999, then started with BK00000 (not with BK100000).

Notes on the manufacture date:
• The year of manufacture in some cases may not be equal to the release year.
• The actual release date can be the same year of manufacture or one year later (e.g., manufactured in December and released in January).
• It (normally) cannot be earlier than the year it was manufactured (though there can be certain exceptions).
• Do not derive a release year from the manufacturing date code alone.

How to enter the matrix number in the LCCN fields:
• Please only enter the "XY#####" part, without the appended disc numbering: This is the internal "article number".
• If a release shows two or more of these numbers (e.g., multi-format releases), please enter each matrix number in a separate field.

Additional notes:
• Even records that come without the characteristic Optimal code can indeed be pressed there. Orders going through certain brokers and/or manufacturers won't get assigned a code for the plating process. With Optimal being one of the biggest pressing plants in Europe, there may be many records that were unknowingly pressed there.

The pressing of Coltrane’s Love Supreme “Live in Seattle” is terribly disappointing. No matter how many cleanings. So many clicks and distortions. It’s sacrilegious.

I've never had an issue with the quality of Optimal's work. All these complaints sound like people need to wash their records and change the stylus. My deluxe copy of MBV's Loveless looks and sounds fantastic. My Jarvis Cocker "Jarvis" looks and sounds incredible. My quadrilogy of Eno reissues...you guessed it ... look and sound incredible (IN SPITE of being "half speed masters", but that is some Abbey Road nonsense, NOT Optimal). I could go on and on, but I'll leave it at that. I am thinking about getting RATM 's first LP ( mostly for nostalgia ) and If I do I will definitely seek out the reissue pressed at Optimal.

They don't seem to mind selling records that are full of scratches to their customers (and labels don't seem to care as well). What a disaster.

Very bad pressing of https://www.discogs.com/Volbeat-Rewind-Replay-Rebound/release/13950350. I like the music but this pressing plant totally ruined the sound. It's not clear sounding. Also both vinyl suffer from scratches.

Optimal has become Europe's cheap & quick turnaround go-to next to GZ. And that's not a good thing. The proof is in the pudding.

They have ruined so many good releases like https://www.discogs.com/My-Bloody-Valentine-Loveless/release/18793696 or "Kate Bush" new remasters. You can listen many surface noise and static noise. They must fix their plants. This is unacceptable. Kevin Shields should press his new vinyl reissues at "Pallas". I will message them

this is a high-end german pressing plant? The quality of their pressigns is garbage . Audible scratches on a new records and a lot of distortions here and there. Its more like made in china than made in germany quality. From now on boycotting anything that has Optimal as a source.
