I have found a couple of NOS Premiums for sale and I also found one PII for sale, however at a significant ‘premium’:o over the PIs.
My main (only?) interest is scanning and burning High Quality Audio CD’s from my own personal collection, which entails slow burn speeds and optimal conditions for quality burns.
Given this, is the PII worth the extra Cash? I have read on this site that the Gigarec at -.8 which is available on both premium models results in a very close approximation to the AMQR setting available only on the PII.
So for those of you lucky enough to own one or more of both of these drives and enough experience using both, is there a significant difference in the burn quality of these two devices when they are set up for optimum performance?
Your thoughts and opinions are appreciated.
