I’m starting to burn a lot of audio cd’s on my Plextor 40/12/20A. I use Verbatim Super Azo made in China (52x) and Taiyo Yuden Type 1 (made in Japan Verbatimes) (52x). I was wondering what speed to use. I’ve heard that using the slowest (4x) can make things worse on high speed media. I was once recommended 16x. If 4x is so bad, why is it the only speed available when recording with Vari Rec (thats supposed to make he cd’s better) ?
Anyone have some experience with this, please give me your results/opinions. I have very limited scanning capabilities (I have no jitter scanner to test with). Am I wrong to think that slower burning speed gives less jitter ?
