"I want to preface my review with a little history. The 8 track tape that CVC transferred the music from to a CD was approximately 36 years old. The last time I remember playing it was around 1984. In the meantime, it remained packed in a box and was eventually placed in the “antic shelf”. I did try to play it one time but my 8 track player did not work and the tape did not change tracks. The way I saw it, that was the end of that … I resigned myself to the sad reality that I would never ever listen to the London’s Cast original version of MAN OF LA MANCHA again … About six months ago I started searching on line for the London’s cast version of Man of La Mancha. I thought for sure that somebody was bound to have it. After three months of searching in vain, I gave up. It was over. All I had was an 8 track and after 36 years of just lying there, I thought the tape was all dried up and would not work anymore. A few months ago , I was searching on line for cds and I ran into lp2cd.com by accident. I quickly clicked on the site and read all about it especially the testimonials. I must admit I was initially impressed. But as the old saying goes, “If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.” It would take a minor miracle to transfer the 8 track material to a cd. But what the heck, what did I have to lose. If I sent the 8 track tape to CVC Productions and they could not work with it, all they would do was return it to me and say they tried but the 8 track was too messed up. After thinking about it for a while, I mailed the 8 track tape to CVC Productions. As I said, what did I have to lose. I really expected them to mail it back with a message saying, they could not work with it. Well, CVC Productions did mail it back. What I received, was the “minor miracle”. There were four cds enclosed, ( along with my 8 track tape of course). The cds came in a very very nice clear plastic jacket and the title of the music on the cd was burned into the surface of the cd. When I played the cd on my player the sound I heard was astounding. The sound was crystal clear and you could hear every sound like I was right there. My first reaction was, How can you do that? How could CVC Productions transfer the material from this beat up old 8 track tape to a cd? Well, they did and they did it with extraordinary style. The music is magnificent. It sounds better than the 8 track tape version. Now I can listen over and over to the music I thought I would never hear again , thanks to CVC Productions. CVC Productions is FOR REAL. I will start spreading the word about CVC to friends and family members. Their customer service is outstanding ( can you believe a real person answers the phone). If you think restoring music or transferring material may be impossible, give CVC Productions a try. Maybe they can help you, “reach the unreachable star … from the musical Man of La Mancha …” "

Details

NOTE: Edison and Acoustical Records processed as "Transfer Only" are NOT RECOMMENDED. Edison and Acoustical records have an inherent "thin" sound and are very noisy. Transfers "with Sound Restoration" clear up a significant portion of the bacground noise, enhance the sound and make for a much more enjoyable listening experience. The price difference for Sound Restoration is modest in comparison with the acoustical quality gained.

We accept under this category and pricing:

  • Edison Diamond Discs, Edison Recreations, other records marked with the Edison trademark (except Edison RED discs made out of a plastic substance)
  • Acoustical Discs (78rpm or other speeds). 
    • Acoustic Discs are recordings made with the sound being piped in with a sound horn, without the use of microphones

Edison Diamond Discs and Acoustical Discs Transfers to CD - What you get for your $:

  • Each Edison record (or Acoustical) is cleaned in a professional record cleaning machine prior to playback.
  • The needle is deep cleaned and conditioned before each play.
  • The record is wiped again before playing each side.
  • Playback and recording on professional equipment (each of our interconnect cables costs more than the average discounter's studio...).
  • Playback and recording is frequently monitored by sound engineers.
  • Sound Restoration is applied if selected (one sound restoration setting for entire CD, Individual Restoration Units for restoring songs individually avaialbe as an Option).
  • Playback and recording is frequently monitored by sound engineers.
  • An MP3 CD of this project (if selected).
  • Each Record side gets 1 track.  Our CDs are cut into tracks by human beings who know where a new track should begin.  We do not use automatic cutting into tracks.
  • CD is printed (we do not use glued-on labels).
  • CD is quality checked.
  • CD is delivered in "classic jewel-case" (with optional Color CD Cover and Track List).
  • Over 22 years experience - 19,000 successful projects.
  • On-line tracking system.
  • Automatic email notifications on receipt of your recordings and order check-out.
  • Optional RUSH Services: 1 week or 72 hours turnaround time
NOTE:  
  • A CD holds maximum 80 minutes.  If all Edison or Acoustical records you submit will fit on one CD, we will make one CD.  Otherwise, we will make a set of two CDs.  In that case, for Extra CD Copies you will need two Extra CD Copies per set.
  • We ask our customers to use common sense in what to expect for final quality from Edison Diamond Discs and Acousticals: if a record is in horrible condition, the CD will NOT sound perfect.  It will sound better than the original record, but better than "horrible" is "very bad"!  It is better to have modest expectation that will be exceeded, than to have unrealistic expectations and be disappointed.  Restoring a bunch of 100 year-old records that sat in the attic for the last 60 years is a gamble: the end result may be great, horrible, or somewhere in the middle.  We, as professionals, will tilt the odds in favor of "quality".  However, we do not participate in the gamble.
