You can burn metal azo audio cd's with your burner.
But the quality will not be better for the recordings.

No CD-R has better audio recording quality then another. This is technically true for even the lowest quality CD-Rs. However, lower quality CD-Rs have C2 errors and lot's of C1 errors, and the more errors you have (especially C2) the more audio quality is lost during playback. So when you ask us which gives a better audio recording, between two high quality CD-Rs, there really isn't an answer. *IF* there is a difference in quality loss, then I'm sure it won't be perceptible to the human ear.

Long story short, both discs are good. Pleasent Burning!

P.S. OOPS! I missed the fact that one of those was an AUDIO CD-R...yep Rabbit is right! the only difference is they cost more [:p]

verbatim metal azo audio cd-rs

there is NO advantage to using special audio CD-Rs over regular computer CD-Rs on a computer CD burner (unless you count getting rid of your money faster an advantage :-)).

ps: you can do yourself a favour (if you haven't done so already) by using http://www.exactaudiocopy.de to rip your audio CDs

Might be the case that his cd player has a poor laser and needs much absorption or reflection.
