Could this work to achieve a "better" backup

I have a question about CloneCD v 4 and the settings available.

If I were to enable all of the settings listed below would I achieve a "more perfect/accurate" backup of the original disc than say, the settings used by ClonyXXL v 2.0.0.6?

Read Settings

Read Speed 4x (both audio and data)
Read subchannel data from both audio and data
Regenerate data sectors
Audio Extraction Quality = best
Error skip = Auto

Write Settings

Write Speed = 8x (I have a Lite-on 40x so 8x is as slow as I can go)
Amplify Weak sectors
Always close Last session

My end goal is to use consistent settings that will read and write a backup, that will work in all of my CD drives, regardless of what the protection of the game is. Speed is not an issue, as I don't mind putting the disc in the drive and making a sandwitch while it reads.

Any suggestions or feedback would help. Thanks!!

My one suggestion with the LiteOn 40x. Don’t enable AWS. It doesn’t need this to make good backups.
