When one thinks of pirate CDs, one usually conjures up images of CD clones in shoddy packaging. But such is not always the case. Take a look at these two Chinese pirate sets of the JVC Asahina Bruckner cycle. The boxes are heavy-duty and the fit is snug. Some have magnetic clasps and ribbon tie-downs. The CDs themselves are silkscreened and are occasionally pressed onto gold media. In some ways, they are nicer than the originals!
