5. DAE Tests
- Pressed and CDR AudioCD results
This ASUS drive supports up to 48X DAE speed. The following results were reported when using Exact Audio Copy.
The Samsung drive supports only up to 40X DAE speed, and this is why it was the slowest of all in this comparison chart. The LiteOn and the ASUS readers support the same DAE speed, but the ASUS model was slightly slower. EAC also reported the following information for each drive:
- Advanced DAE Quality
The results we had with the Nero Suite, simply confirmed the results we saw with EAC. The LiteOn was still the fastest drive.
- Ripping 90mins AudioCDs
- Ripping 99mins AudioCDs
Unfortunately, the drive cannot read/rip 90 mins or 99 mins discs.
