DVD-U05S SCSI DVD-ROM -
We used CD DAE 99 v0.2 with AudioCDs in order to check DAE performance
of the Pioneer DVD-U05S and we compared it with others Pioneer DVD-Rom models.
As the retail box stated, the U05S is only capable of 12x CLV DAE speed.
- Pressed AudioCD results
No surprises here since all Pioneer DVD-ROM models have their DAE speed
locked at 13x max:
- Princo 74min AudioCD:
The same thing happened with CDR media. All drive delivered around 12.5x,
which is very low compared with what the competition is able to do:
- Advanced DAE Quality
Here at last is another big improval over the previous Pioneer
DVD-Rom models. The U05S from our tests seem to have the best DAE quality
among Pioneer models but misses to get a perfect score (100). Notice the
low data errors (only 16871) compared to the 10x and 16x Pioneer DVD-ROMs.
We hope that this small bug will be fixed soon and the drive will have perfect
DAE in near future.
