HQCD (High Quality CD) is a new CD formulation developed by Toshiba EMI as an answer to the JVC/Universal's SHM-CD. Similarly to the SHM-CD, the HQCD uses the same higher quality polycarbonate material developed for LCD panels, which offers better pressing quality and greater transparency. In addition, the HQCD uses a specially formulated amalgam -- which offers better reflectivity than alumunum -- in its reflective layer.
The combined effects are more precise, more faithful reproduction of the glass master in the pressing stage and reduced reading errors in playback. Toshiba EMI claims that these improvements lead to higher perceived sound pressure levels, a better frequency balance, higher resolution and wider and deeper soundstage.
