To be fair it was a thousand times more credible than freezing, and believe it or not, according to Dave.co who witnessed some tests, it was proved to genuinely reduce read-errors. Marker pen had to be a certain shade of lime green to absorb laser scatter. Still it was a big con though, because the Reed-Solomon error correction built into CDs already fixes read errors 100% perfectly unless the data in a sector is so damaged that the audio skips, and no green pen can fix that. At the time, this magazine was just as full of baloney as the rest about it; you know the usual crap: crisper highs, better soundstage, deeper bass. All that stuff which can't possibly happen with a digital signal without DSP.insider9 said:Think I might have heard the freezing but marker pen? Hahaha, incredible!
