that it does appear professional.  Graeme Jaye, a noted audio preservation
and CD Repair expert claims a "more professional approach."

CD-Shine is produced by active Association of Moving Image Archivists
member Russ McMillen who has worked for the pioneering National Film Board
and the country's largest broadcaster, the C.B.C.  He has turned his
incredible talent to preserving media and says that the chemicals in
CD-Shine have been in use for many years, and are safe to use under any
