Audiophile HQCD

Finally got my copy of Bondy Chiu's audiophile recording from Hong Kong. It was sold out over Christmas...
HQCD is a higher quality pressing by using lens quality plastic and silver allow first developed for the now dead HD-DVD.

Bondy Chiu (you can hear her music here) is a Hong Kong-based artist that with Ken Poon (his blog is Design with Sound), a recording engineer and audiophile has created perhaps the first mass-market Audiophile CD.

The CD sounds very good, and if you got friends in Hong Kong, can be purchased for around HK$ 160.

I don't see how the materials the CD is made of would help with the quality, since CDs are digitally encoded.
