Hi Guys. In technical terms I am very much a newbie in this area.
I have a friend who insists that his Plextor Premium 2 is just about the best thing since sliced bread and he suggests that I get rid of my old (and still reliable) LITE-ON SOHR 5239S. As we both do a bit of private audio mastering/editing (mainly vinyl to CD), he swears that the Plextor software produces a better quality output, specifically that part of the software called “GigaRec”. This apparently: “…enables you to use the entire capacity of the disc, increasing the size of the pits and lands for higher reproductive quality.”
This unit is quite expensive, plus you have to go online and pay extra for the “Professional” level software - all together, well over $US100 !!
I have listened to some of his discs and I can’t tell much difference.
Probably old age!!
Can anyone comment about this claim of: “higher reproductive quality” for this software?
Is there other or better audio mastering software available - in your opinion?
[Back in 24 hours - sorry.]
