off centre B sides were quite common, BUT you can always correct that on your own.

As far as clean galvanics and the noise floor they were very, very good.
no clicks, no pops. i've never heard a disc they've pressed that would have any sonic defects. The black compound they have used was also very durable. Some of their discs have been played a LLOT and they look and sound as new.

shame they're gone.

So what was the reason for going bankrupt? They had some legal battles going

Some court info: BE – PHILIPS V. DISCO-PRESS
Posted: May 12th, 2011

Koninklijke Philips Electronics v. Disco-Press et al, Antwerp Commercial Court, Belgium, 27 April 2011, Case No. A/07/05905, with thanks to Carl de Meyer and Carina Gommers, Hoyng Monegier, for sending in de case

DVD replicators amount to indirect infringement. Punitive damages (more than EUR 6.5 million).

Philips is the proprietor of a number of patents relating to CD and DVD technology. These patents are said to be the industry standard for CD and DVD technology. The first defendant manufactured his own discs by means of a replicator, which it rented from the second defendant, and a “glassmaster” which served as a mold inside the replicator to be able to manufacture the desired carriers. Philips accused the first defendant of both direct and indirect infringement. The second defendant was accused only of indirect infringement.

The court imposed injunctions against the defendants and ordered the destruction of the infringing DVDs that were found at the defendants’ premises. Most notably, the court, upon assessing the indirect infringement of the second defendant, emphasised that the fact that the replicators could also be used for the manufacture of other products, was irrelevant, since they related to an essential element of the patented invention and were clearly suitable and intended for putting the invention into effect. The fact that the machines themselves did not contain the subject-matter of the invention(s) was equally held irrelevant.

==========
The court also found the infringers to have acted in bad faith, because they were well aware of the existence of the patents and had been asked several times before to sign a licence agreement, which they had refused. In addition, documents had been found in the manufacturing room stating that the name of the first defendant should never be mentioned on the inside ring of the discs, which the court found suspicious. Because of the bad faith, the court held that the damages should not only have the usual compensatory effect, but also a punative effect.
