Pioneer DVR-111DBK

3. CD Error Correction

In the following tests, we check the drive's behavior when reading scratched / defective audio discs. The test discs used were the ABEX series from ALMEDIO.

- ABEX TCD-721R

Errors total Num: 1086353
Errors (Loudness) dB(A) Num: 54567 Avg: -73.6 dB(A) Max: -34.9 dB(A)
Error Muting Samples Num: 3479 Avg: 1.1 Samples Max: 40 Samples
Skips Samples Num: 0 Avg: 0.0 Samples Max: 0 Samples
Total Test Result 76.6 points (out of 100.0 maximum)

Pioneer produced very good results in this test. The total errors count is average, while the Maximum Error loudness is close to the acceptable limits. There were no skipped samples reported and the overall test score of 76.6 points out of 100 is very good.

- ABEX TCD-726

Errors total Num: 180
Errors (Loudness) dB(A) Num: 12 Avg: -70.3 dB(A) Max: -66.8 dB(A)
Error Muting Samples Num: 0 Avg: 0.0 Samples Max: 0 Samples
Skips Samples Num: 0 Avg: 0.0 Samples Max: 0 Samples
Total Test Result 93.3 points (out of 100.0 maximum)

This is a much easier test disk than the previous one and most of the latest model drives pass this test with a perfect score. The total test result score of 93.3 out of 100 is still good though.

- CD-Check Audio Test Disc

The CD-Check Test Disc is a very useful tool for evaluating the Sound Reproduction / Error correction capabilities of a CD player. The disc offers a signal combination with disc error patterns to rate the drive's abilities to read music and reproduce it completely. Five tracks on the disc contain a sequence of progressively more difficult tests. These tracks are referred to as Check Level-1 through Check Level-5.

The tracks are reproduced through a software multimedia player (e.g. Windows Media Player). Each level is considered as passed, if the tone is smooth, continuous without interruptions, skipping or looping. The higher the Check Level passed, the more reliable the sound reproduction of the tested drive.

Error Level 1 2 3 4 5
Pioneer DVR-111DBK 5/5 5/5 5/5 5/5 1/5

The DVR-111DBK reached the fifth level and produced only two audible clicks. This is good performance.

- Summary

Overall, the drive has a good CD error correction.
