CyClone 16/10/40 IDE CDR-W -
We used CD DAE 99 v0.2 with AudioCDs in order to check DAE performance of
the TDK CyClone 161040 and we compared it with the Sanyo CRD-BP4/1400P and Yamaha
CRW2100E models. Use 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.
- Pressed AudioCD results:
All Sanyo based drives have similar DAE performance (around 23.4x average)
but considerably less than what the Yamaha CRW2100E is able to do (40x max):
- Princo 74min AudioCD:
The Sanyo based drives have the same performance with CDR media as they
do with pressed CDs:
- Advanced DAE Quality:
As you can see all drives got 100 (perfect) score in the Advanced DAE Quality
tests. The Yamaha 2100E still holds the first place among the Sanyo based drives.
Sanyo has to look for the sync errors which the test revealed and improve the
already, almost perfect, DAE performance!
Noticed anything interesting here? CD Speed test show that the drive can read
SubChannel data (from audio tracks probably).
