At five o'clock on the afternoon of 31st May 2023, CD Makers closed down after 30 years of business.

Thank you

Thank you to all my customers, those who have had one job done, and those who've been with me many times since 1993.

The journey has not been without mistakes, but I leave with a clear conscience, knowing that at all times I have done my very best.

With best wishes to all,
Andrew Host.


I was delighted when a customer was pleased with the work I did.

It made my day when a customer would go to the trouble of letting me know that they were happy.

Here is a tiny sample of the comments I received from some of my clients.


I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did with my old tapes with Peter sent you.
My daughter was too young to remember her father but now she can hear his voice and hear the record of his Thanksgiving Service which was attended by well over 600.
It has been reproduced very clearly and will be appreciated not only by my family but many others who want to hear it.

It was an emotional service for my three young sons so to hear it now after so many years (1974) will remind them of their father's legacy. I must admit that I shed a few tears while listening to it.
Thank you for a job well done.

With my grateful thanks and appreciation.


Thankyou very much. We are very happy with the final version.
Yours sincerely,
Di and Rebecca


Thank you very much for dropping off the CD over this morning to Artarmon. I'm so happy with it and really appreciate the bonus cd which I'll give to my sister as a surprise. It will bring back good memories for her! Your service has been flawless - Thanks Again
Anita, Artarmon


I was impressed by the orderly layout of the data both on the hard copy papers and on the USB drives.

Having the different formats (WAV/MP3) will be useful, thank you for that, too.
I was really overjoyed at having the individual songs, more than I dared hope for, and what I really wanted, as a final result.
Kind regards,
Janet, Marion SA.


Hello Andrew, Thank you for the wonderful job. I could not be happier.Without your skills, it would not have been possible to provide copies of the program. My wife and I are extremely grateful, not only with the excellent sound quality, but with the professionalism of your company.
Converting the tapes so quickly (at Christmas time as well) and having such a straightforward way to drop off and pick up the tapes.
Such a great service!
Could you also thank the lady at Westleigh Newsagency. She was so helpful and cheery, and made the process as easy as can be.
Thank you very much.
With all our gratitude,
Allan and Pam, Wyoming, NSW.


Andrew, Many thanks for the excellent job done on the CD "Sing To The Glory". Sales of the CD are doing well and we have already raised $2500.00 which purchased a new weighing chair for our local hospital.
Your help has been appreciated by all.
Many Thanks,
Phyll and Bill, Wauchope, NSW.


Dear Andrew, Thank you very much for doing a wonderful job and at such a very modest price,
Gillian, Wahroonga, NSW.


Andrew, Just a note to say how much we appreciated your efficient and courteous attention recently with the transfer of our wedding recording from open-reel tape to CD-R.
We are delighted with the completed result and look forward to finally listening to memories of our special day with a lot more clarity in the years ahead.
Barry and Trish.


Dear Andrew, Once again thank you for your generosity and efficiency. I really do appreciate how you have helped us. With thanks, Edie.


Dear Andrew, Thanks so much for transcribing the cassettes - and for the free copy. My husband Alastair (nickname Gus) says it must have been excruciating for you to have to listen to so much drivel!
We are especially grateful to you for making the 1943 recording so much clearer. It was made just before Gus's father went off to the war, so it has great family significance.
Best regards,

Dear Andrew
I have just returned from a week of examining in Newcastle to find the CDs consisting of transferrals from the cassettes.
I am thrilled with the results which - of course - are thoroughly professional. Thank you very much indeed.
John, Bardwell Park (via email).
