I think JVC itself used this system to master their series of deluxe-quality CD's in Japan. I don't
know if they are still releasing in that series, or if they still use this system to make a digital
master. As I recall, the system they used had their proprietary U-Matic based mastering chain and
their own system to make a glass master and I believe they pressed in their own plant in Japan.
These are the CD's that are in a bound mini-book, the exact brand name of the series escapes me
right now. Anyway, someone at JVC in Japan will know all the details on this.
