GZ Digital Media

GZ Digital Media

Profil:
Established as “Gramofonové Závody a.s.” (“Gramophone Record Factory”) in 1951, GZ is a leading manufacturer of records, cassettes and optical discs. This Czech based company is probably the largest record manufacturer in the world today and has expanded its record manufacturing activities to include investments in Canada and the USA. Operated under this name between 17 January 2000 and 31 December 2013.

Succession of names :
Gramofonové Závody since 1951;
renamed to GZ Media (1 January 2014).

Vinyl matrix schemes ca. 1999–2003:
AX #####/Z
“A” = verbatim, no particular meaning
“X” = format
“Z” = galvanoplasty

Vinyl matrix schemes ca. 2003–2013:
#####X~/Z or #####X~~/Z
“X” = format
“~” = side number
“Z” = galvanoplasty

Main vinyl formats:
E = stereo, 12", 33⅓ RPM
F = stereo, 10", 33⅓ RPM
H = stereo, 7", 45 RPM
M = stereo, 12", 45 RPM
N = stereo, 10", 45 RPM
O = stereo, 7", 33⅓ RPM - "O" can sometimes be mistaken with a "0" (zero)

CD matrix scheme:
GZ X##### (GZ prefix is sometimes omitted)
“X” = year of matrix manufacturing
K=1999, L=2000, M=2001, N=2002, O=2003, P=2004, R=2005, S=2006, T=2007, U=2008, V=2009, W=2010, X=2011, Y=2012, Z=2013

“Q” was never used in the matrix schemes.
CD matrix will be stored for 2 years, i.e. any represses in that time window will bear the same number.
If the original CD matrix was damaged, a new one will be created with a new number.


How to
• When another company is etched into the runouts alongside the GZ Digital Media matrix number, please add a Manufactured By credit for that company in addition to the Pressed By credit for GZ Digital Media.
• For these releases with “www.gzvinyl.com” in runout area the “www.gzvinyl.com” entity can be used.
• All releases manufactured (and released) before 1999 (CD: year code “A” to “J”) should be listed under Gramofonové Závody.
Use this entity to list releases manufactured from 1999 to 2013. Releases manufactured (and released) in 1998 or earlier should be listed under Gramofonové Závody. All releases manufactured in 2014 or later (CD: year code “A” etc. again) should be listed under GZ Media; do not confuse the actual release date with the year of manufacture though. 115067E vinyl matrix number is known to had been made still in 2013: for this reason, all releases with matrix number lower than 115067E should be listed under GZ Digital Media. 2014 releases that carry a matrix number lower than 115067E should be listed under GZ Digital Media too.

LCCN how-to
Vinyl matrix schemes ca. 1999–2003: Only the basic “AX ##### string should be entered with Pressed By role, without the galvanoplasty suffix. For example: AE 50022.
Vinyl matrix schemes ca. 2003–2013: Enter the numbers up to and including the first letter. For example: 75077M, 110557E, with Pressed By role. If at the same time “www.gzvinyl.com” string is found on run-out grooves use the role Manufactured By for it.
CD: only the “X#####” string should be entered, without the “GZ” prefix.

GZ does all of Castleface's stuff (Oh Sees) and I've never had any trouble with them.

I always check the comments on pressing companies and was scared of this one based on that but I realized I do have at least one, Unholy Graves' Raw Chaos (2005) (https://www.discogs.com/Unholy-Grave-Raw-Chaos/release/3856193), granted it's grindcore noise and a 4 track demo at that, but, the record is clean. No surface noise beyond normal expectation. I recorded it in Audacity and removed one (1) very noticeable "pop". When I came to Discogs to ID3 it and saw it was GZ I was somewhat amazed that it sounded very good. I am still wary of GZ but is not guaranteed crap it seems. Just sharing that.

Agree with the previous post, I sigh whenever I receive a pressing from GZ. Lots of background noise and generally lifeless and flat.

I must've been really lucky, most of my new records come from GZ, and very few of them I have issues with. Compared to plants like United and Rainbo, they're miles ahead.

I have several records pressed by GZ. Quality control must be inexistent at their factory.
Just avoid anything pressed by them.

Every LP I have bought, which has been pressed by GZ, suffers from unbearable surface noise which is impossible to remove. This is undoubtedly due to poor housekeeping ,if any, and lacking quality control, if any. In future I will avoid buying any LP's pressed by this company.
