Pioneer DVD-105S DVD ROM

3. DAE Tests

Pioneer DVD-105S 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 Pioneer DVD-105S and we compared it with the DVD-104s model.

- Pressed AudioCD results:
As with the previous 104S model, Pioneer 105S has its DAE speed locked at 13x max. Not the best DAE performance you can get nowadays:

- Princo 74min AudioCD:
The same thing happened with CDR media. Both drives delivered around 12.5x average DAE speed, which is far behind than what the competition offers

- Advanced DAE Quality

Here is a very interesting situation. The 16x model (105S) seems to have worse DAE quality (74.1) than the old 10x model (104S). That is a point which Pioneer should fix soon with a firmware upgrade, since the 74.1 score is not good. Last the drive refused to read both 90 and 99minutes CDs :(
