The Walker Audio Ultra Vivid CD/DVD Enhancer improves the picture quality of DVDs significantly and enhances the sound quality of both DVDs, SACDs and CDs!
Walker Audio Ultra Vivid CD/DVD Enhancer cleans and de-statics DVDs, SACDs, and CDs. It removes any release film from the disc and has an optical enhancer that renders the plastic transparent so the laser can correctly read the information on the disc. This means you see and hear what was recorded instead of the error correction system’s interpretation of it. Note: Walker Audio Ultra Vivid CD/DVD Enhancer is safe for regular SACDs. Do not use on SACDs that have a gold external tint.
On DVDs, Ultra Vivid will improve both picture and sound. Look for a cleaner, sharper image. Colors will be more alive without harshness or brightness. Look for a sense of depth to the picture. Distances between foreground and background objects become more realistic. Also, listen for sound effects to be more distinct and focused. The audio will have dimensionality and sounds will appear to move across the soundstage. With Ultra Vivid, you will hear more of the music that is on a CD. The sound will be clearer and more focused. Bass will be fuller, yet more precise and distinct. The upper ranges will be less harsh. You may even hear parts of the music you never heard before.
Just read the claims they make about this stuff - can't be true, can it? YES, absolutely. One of my great complaints about CD sound is graininess and "fat" splashy esses. I've spent years trying to over this, but Ultra Vivid has improved has all but erradicated the problem.But its more than that - more 3d soundstage, deeper, easier to follow bass lines, darker silences, cleaner high frequencies, and a generally more listenable, dare I say, more analogue sound.It aint cheap, but its worth every penny!Just one thing, when the instructions say to apply the solution with "light to moderate" pressure, I'd go with light to avoid any light scratching. But that's my only (very slight) criticism. Well, that and that nobody told me about this years ago! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I really like this product, compared to other disc cleaners, this product works on another level, and I've tried a few. Whereby other cleansers are designed to remove the "release agent" on the disc, vivid accomplishes this and optically polishes the surface to enable the laser head to read the bits more accurately, thus reducing jitter. The result is just as Walker describe in their product information, higher resolution, etc. I heard a similar result akin to an interconnect or digital cable upgrade. A very worthwhile purchase, recommended

This CD treatment is surprisingly effective in improving the sound of CDs and pictures on Blu-Ray discs. Easy to use.
