    Is there a list of Cds that were mastered with pre-emphasis? Thanks

    I'm sure it would be some of the early ones. Not sure about any list or not.

    Sorry I can't help you out anymore.

    I was just thinking about this earlier. Maybe there should be a "sticky" or some kind of list that includes all CD's that we find that have Pre-Emphasis?

    Well,

    Of course the Abbey Road Black Triangle CD
    The original Toto IV had pre-emphasis (at least the one I had)

    I'll start: (I don't have the catalog #'s, sorry)

    The Beatles - Abbey Road (Black Triangle)
    Billy Joel - 52nd St. (Japan for Japan / Japan for US)
    Billy Joel - Glass Houses (Japan for Japan / Japan for US)

    That's all I know. The other Billy Joel Japan CDs from around that time DO NOT have pre-emphasis. I checked.

    Call me dumb, but what's pre-emphasis?

    Does this included the US or just the Japan and Canadian?

    But also the "non-TO, with CDP" pressing.

    I would think since they are derived from the same mastering, they all would have PE.

    Quarterflash - S/T, Japanese target pressing.
    New Order - Low Life, Factory Records import. I can't remember if it was French made or UK made. I'll have to check tonight.

    Neither. It turns out to be made in Japan. But it's the Factory disc made for the UK market, not the Quest/WB US disc.

    I have CP35-3017 31B2 // CDP 7 46001 2, non-TO, blackface w/CDP on label and nothing I've tried (EAC 0.95b4, EAC 0.99pb1, Plextools Pro LE) flags it as having pre-emphasis. Should they?

    (There isn't a single pregap on the whole disc, either. Index 01, index 01, index 01...)

    They can't, you need an older version (up to EAC 0.95 prebeta 3). Look here for more information.

    My Japanese black-triangle copy of Paul McCartney's Tug of War has pre-emphasis, as does my old U.S. Columbia copy of Pink Floyd's The Wall.

    Really? Strange... the Japanese Pipes of Peace had pre-emphasis, even in the version for Europe etc.
    But the even earlier Tug of War (CDP 7 46...) hadn't - although it is made in Japan, too.

    My US-issued, Japan-made Columbia Tug of War CD doesn't have PE. But the Japanese black-triangle disc definitely does.
