Number 9 Audio Group

CD & DVD Manufacturing

Completely custom short-run & long-run CD/DVD manufacturing. 

Number 9 Audio Group was one of the first companies in Toronto to offer custom short-run duplication and we are still one of the leaders today. Let our experts guide you through the process and help you create the perfect CD or DVD for your project.

The Right People For The Job

With over 36 years of experience in the music industry, you can rely on our expertise to ensure your project runs smoothly from beginning to end. Often while manufacturing CDs or DVDs unexpected delays arise because of inadequate preparation or miscommunication. We guarantee all materials are coordinated correctly, so you don’t miss your deadline. Our Toronto-based CD duplication services recognize that the best way to keep duplication and replication costs down on your end is to deliver an exceptional disc product quickly and accurately.

CD Duplication

Compact discs remain one of the most common methods of distributing digital technology. Uses for CD duplication include music demos, utility software, video games, digital portfolios, corporate documents, wedding favours, full-length albums, and many other project-specific applications. Number 9 was one of the first companies in Toronto to offer short-run CD duplication so you can rely on our experience to ensure your project runs smoothly from beginning to end. We use only state-of-the-art disc duplication and printing technology. Enjoy a retail-ready product that is ready by your deadline.

DVD Duplication

DVD is a great choice for archiving and distributing a large amount of data on a single disc. A DVD-5 will hold up to 4.38 gigabytes (GB) of information while a DVD-9 will accommodate 7.95 GB. DVDs are a perfect solution for backing up your old VHS tapes onto a format that will preserve the picture quality and is easier to navigate. We offer straight-to-DVD transfers for cost efficiency or we can add chapters to the video and build custom menus which will aid in navigating your video.

Printing
For large-run orders, inserts are printed using the professional standard off-set process. Options for printing are countless – including but not limited to booklets, posters, folders, euro-packs, spot colours, custom stock, digi-pak, etc.

Custom Short-Run CD & DVD Duplication

For orders under 500 units, we recommend CD or DVD duplication. Our CD & DVD duplication process is completed entirely in house, that means no middle man and more savings for you. Number 9 has a state of the art thermal retransfer printer with the ability to print at up to 600dpi resolution; the printing is UV resistant and instantly permanent as compared to lower-resolution, sometimes smudgeable inkjet printing. We print directly on the DVD or CD; we do NOT use stick-on labels since they can compromise the playing quality of the disc. Our CD & DVD duplicates look and feel 100% professional grade.
