CyberDrive DM126D DVD-ROM

3. DAE Tests

Cyber Drive DM126D DVD-ROM - Page 3

DAE Tests

Test Method:
We used CD DAE 99 v0.2 with AudioCDs in order to check DAE performance of the Cyber Drive DM-126D and we compared it with the Pioneer DVD-104F and DVD-105 models.

- Pressed AudioCD results:
Another pleasant surprise from the DM-126D. CD DAE 99 reported that its average speed was 24X, and this is very fast compared to the other two. A small price to pay for such a speed is a very small number of errors, actually 45 out of 773337600 and no track errors at all. CPU Usage is also interesting, since the process seems to need a lot of processing power when done with the DM-126D. The Pioneer competitors fall way behind as you can see in the following diagram :

- Advanced DAE Quality

Just look at this... need we say more? This drive is ideal for Digital Audio Extractions. A blazing average speed, no sync errors, and a quality score of 100. The Pioneer drives couldn't keep up, with locked speeds and lots of sync errors :

Another very strong point of the DM-126D is its ability to read 90min and 99min CDs. Not only that, but unlike its two competitors, it was able to complete a full EAC rip of a 99min Audio CD. Just look at the screenshot on your right. Sure, the speed dropped at as low as 5.8x, but the process was able to complete. Both the two Pioneer drives made screeching noises and both crashed the Windows 2000 test machine.
