Post your Plextor CD quality scans here

MID: Taiyo Yuden-97m24s01f(MIJ)
Type:Sony CD-R Music(52x rated)
Drive/Firmware: Plextor Premium II/1.00
DAE: Plextor Premium II
Burned With: PlexTools Pro XL 3.16
Burned at: 8x speed
PoweRec: On
AMQR: On
VeriRec: On
Offset: +.5 Default Strategy

I set this to burn at 4x but i guess VariRec or PowerRec set it to burn @8x :doh:
I’ll burn another one at 4x later.








Another awesome burn! :clap:

The Premium II, unlike the original Premium, is tuned for slow speed burning, and it shows. A pity that you can’t buy a black one over here. :frowning:

Here is BenQ 1640 Advanced test. Wasn’t enough space for the other post.



[quote=packetloss;2144012]Wow james, that is the best CD-R burn I have ever seen. C1 average of 0.1! Crazy! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Unfortunately, my Premium doesn’t support AMQR, would really like to experiment with it also. :)[/quote]
I can get the same results @8x and no AMQR but the VeriRec has to be set to Offset: +.5 Default Strategy, I have tried other VeriRec settings but this works best for MIJ media.

nice!

And here is BenQ 1640 Advanced test results



Ouch, that really doesn’t look good Bob. Thanks for the scans and the ‘experiment’ anyway.

My experiment with the “Cyanine” recording strategy in the VariRec options went terribly wrong also, as I wrote earlier. The precious TDK CD-R was totally unreadable.
