DAE Tests

Test Machine:
ABIT BH6
Celeron 300A over clocked to 464 MHz
128 MB SDRAM PC 100
Quantum Fireball EX 6.4 GB UDMA
CL RivaTNT
CL AWE32
MS Windows 98 Build 4.10.2136
Teac 532E-A Firmware : v3.0a (with Auto Insert Notification & Sync transfer off)
Plextor UltraPlex 40max, Firmware v1.01, (with Auto Insert Notification off & Sync transfer on).

Tested CD: The Chemical Brothers "Big Your Own Hole" - Track 10

Test Method:  I used EAC v0.81b & AudioGrabber v1.40 to test audio capabilities. Also  compared it with Teac and Plextor.

Comparing Method:
- Ripped Track10 of the CD with Drag & Drop (using CDFS) and with all the other CD Rippers.
- Edited all wavs with Hedit v2.0.04 and located the 2 following bytes "EA  68" (chosen randomly)
- Removed all previous bytes and saved.
- Then in a Dos window compared them using: FC /b x.wav y.wav
