Hi folks, I’m a total newbie here and I’d be grateful if I could tap into the accumulated wisdom of the community.
I’m building a PC for my living room, to act as a music jukebox, and I want it to be quiet - I want to listen to music, not to the PC! Unfortunately I’m finding it hard to get any decent information regarding which are the quietest CDRW drives.
The key issue for me is how loud the drive would be when playing a music CD. For example the drive on my desktop PC is hopeless. It makes a huge whooshing sound, as if it’s spinning the disc up to a very high speed - even when I’m just playing a CD and you’d think it should run happily at 1x rather than 32x or 48x or whatever.
Can anybody recommend drives that are quiet when playing music CDs? Rather than specific models, are there manufacturers whose drives tend to be better behaved than others?
Thanks for your help.
