[QUOTE=evo69;2251328]You could try/test burning at higher speeds - I have a batch of Verbatim AZO CD-Rs that tend to do better at higher speeds (16x-40x) as compared to slower than 16x. That 16x graph you posted might be of a defective disc, which is becoming more commonplace now due to the race for “cheaper” selling discs.[/QUOTE]
I think that Verbatim is not going to sell the same old good quality like it used to be. Not here in Italy, at least.
As I already worte, at the beginning I thought it was a matter of a consignment non very well done. It can happen… but NOT after 40 CD-rs with a bad result (again: bought in different places and in different period)
Anyway… I might be wrong but I still think that burning an audio CD using a speed higher than 16x it is a sort of suicide!
I tried to burn 32x and I got less error - still too much - but the jitter test was very bad.
So bad that I could not play it in my car’s cd player.
So, I still believe that by a good media like T.Y. and for audio CD , 16x is still the good speed.
and, of course, no more Verbatim (glossy or not, printable or not, whatever… ) until they will change this bad production line by Mitsubishi!
