Does Teac CD-W552E really writes audio at top quality?

Postby Harrier on Sat Mar 15, 2003 12:00 pm

In this next PDF document they claim that the digital audio output is it's knockdown feature.
Some say that it is why this new drive should be better at burning audio than other writers since it implements that feature.

Is there any truth in such asseveration?
If not, what are the feature's benefits to the overall performance of the drive?
Thanks.

I thought your question sounded familiar. Didn't you already ask this question, or is there some subtle variant I am missing?

Anyway, I don't see anything in that brochure claiming superior audio burning qualities. It just says it does 52x DAE and has digital audio output. Neither of these have anything to do with writing, they apply only to reading. And they aren't unique to this drive. All modern CD-RW drives do DAE and have digital audio outputs. The 52x top speed for DAE is good, but isn't unique to this drive. For example, check the DAE speeds on the ASUS CRW-5224A:

In summary, there is nothing special about the audio qualities of this drive. If you want a drive with special features designed to improve audio quality (I can't comment on whether these features actually make an audible difference), then get a Yamaha with its AMQR or a Plextor with its VariRec.
