CD-Recordable has come a long way in a few short years. Once an expensive, single-purpose technology, CD-R has quickly evolved into an economical, multifaceted system available to small and large businesses for a growing number of applications, including data distribution, publishing, archiving, and prototyping. One rapidly growing area of interest involves combining the CD recorder with the multidisc CD-ROM jukebox. This article reviews the Grundig GMP 1010 CD jukebox produced by Grundig USA. It is designed for low-run CD duplication or production, small workgroup network archiving, and small imaging applications.

COMPACT discs and MARKETING
The author maintains that CD-Recordable is a proven success that should not risk being undermined by CD-Erasable, which is of questionable advantage and may confuse the established market. CD-R has been on the market for at least five years and has matured into a solid and viable product. With roots in commercial prototyping, premastering, and archiving, CD-R has moved into the realm of personal audio, backup, data interchange, and microform. It has become an archival and paper replacement in small and large firms alike. With the introduction of packet writing, ease of use has improved immensely. On the other hand, CD-Erasable, now being termed CD-ReWritable, offers too many limitations and drawbacks, and too little incentive to make the change.
