Pioneer DR-104s DAE Graph (DMA On)

Various Rippers Results

Test Method: I used CDFS.VXD & EAC v0.9 pre beta 3 to test audio capabilities. EAC reported that DVDive was capable of accurate stream but it also had "caching on". Tests made comparing "Burst" vs "Secure Stream with caching" mode.

Tested CD: The Chemical Brothers "Dig Your Own Hole" - Track :  1, 5, 10

Comparing Method:
- Ripped Tracks 1, 5, 10 of the CD with DVDag & DVDop (using CDFS) and with EAC (Secure & Burst mode).
- Edited all wavs with Hedit v2.0.04 and located the 2 following bytes (chosen randomly)
- Removed all previous bytes and saved.
- Then in a Dos window compared them using: FC /b x.wav y.wav

Programs Settings:
CDFS DVDiver v4.00.130 : DVDag  & DVDop
EAC v0.9b : Burst & Secure Mode / Rip Speed Default / Allow speed reduction / Error correction medium

Additional Tests
Ripped all tracks using Test & Copy EAC (Burst mode). Into this mode all tracks ripped and tested by EAC (test repeated 3 times). Average ripping speed was 11.8x. CRC check test of EAC in all tests was ok. That means Pioneer DVD-104S is capable of doing up to 12x (max) DAE (CPU Usage 25-30%).

Verdict of DAE Results:
Pioneer DVD-104s maximum DAE performance is 12x as specifications stated. CDFS gave the best results since it had above 10x in all tests. EAC secure mode (with caching) performed from 2.7x-3.2x . Eac Burst mode performed quite good also giving up to 11.4x. As results indicate Pioneer DVD-104S is a good performer for DAE jobs. However if you plan to use it for 12x writing is not a good choise since it cannot follow CDR-W Dive.
