Mitsumi CR-480ATE CD-RW

4. DAE Tests

Mitsumi CR-480ATE IDE CDR-W - Page 4

DAE Tests

- Test Method

We used CD DAE 99 v0.21 beta and EAC v0.9 prebeta 11 software in order to check the DAE performance of the drive with various AudioCDs (both pressed and CDR). The posted DAE results are the average of both applications, but the CPU usage was only taken from CD DAE 99, since EAC occupies the system a lot more. As a last note, we used the "BURST" reading mode of EAC. We made a full CD Rip starting from the first to the last track of the CD. The Average DAE reported speed along with the CPU Usage is displayed in the test graphs.

- DAE features

We used EAC v0.9 prebeta 11 to examine the drive's features. As the program reported, the drive doesn't "Caching" data, supports "Accurate Stream" and doesn't include "C2" error info. All 4 tested drives supports up to 40x (CAV) DAE speed.

- Pressed AudioCD results

The Mitsumi CR-480ATE performance with pressed Audio CDs wasn't enough for the drive to get one of the highest places in this roundup. The drive's average reading DAE ripping speed is 28.0X:

- CDR AudioCD results

The Mitsumi CR-480ATE has the same performance with CDR media, as with the pressed CDs. Again it gets the last place with 28.1X:

- EAC Secure Extract Ripping mode

After many requests from numerous visitors we have added the EAC's secure extract ripping mode results, which ensures maximum produced WAV quality. Note that for each drive we used the build-in detection function:

- Advanced DAE Quality

The Mitsumi CR-480ATE gets a 100 score (best) in the Nero CD Speed Advanced DAE test. The drive's average reading speed was 28.69x and no errors were produced. As the following picture shows, the drive can read CD-Text/SubChannel Data:

- Bad CDR Media results

Despite the fact that Nero CD Speed Advanced DAE test stretches drive's mechanism to the max, we decided to do real life tests with a scratched disc. The disc was dirty, and with some light scratches, enough in order cause problems to most of the tested drives. We used CD DAE 99 software to rip the whole disc (756539616 sectors) and the results were very interesting:

The Mitsumi CR-480ATE didn't performed well with our bad CDR test disc. The drive reported 202102 errors while TEAC CD-W524E manages to have only one.

- Ripping 90 and 99mins AudioCDs

The Mitsumi CR-480ATE recognizes both 90/99min AudioCDs without any problems.
