Well, I have personally had quite a bit of luck with the LiteON 401s DVD-Writer, but to be fair, I almost never burn audio CDs. If you take a brief look at the reviews we have offered here, you can see that there are jitter tests done on CD-Rs burned in the various DVD recorders reviewed by this site. These tests are what you want to keep your eyes on, since they will greatly affect the compatability of the discs you burn. I believe the Plextor 708a shows the absolute lowest jitter values, and the Optotrite DD0203 and LiteON 401s come in slightly behind it. It is too bad that we have yet to see a Yamaha DVD drive (with Audio Mastering abilities) so far.... it would be nice if they would re-join the industry in this way, because then it would be easy to suggest a drive for you!
