Hello everybody !
I'm writing to see if anybody knows something about how Vari Rec works and how it should be set according to the user's needs.
I own a Plexwriter 40x and actually both the Plextor site and the burner manual are not very clear about this topic.

Waiting for your replies, guys !!

VariRec:

This technology is there to let you tweak the laserpower during an audio-recording. One of the most frequent things is that certain media isn’t playable in car hifi-systems andso. Altering the laserpower could help a lot. Only to use when you are experiencing problems because the default setting is most-likely the best setting for your drive.

The default setting should give you the best quality result , because these are the optimum settings for the plextor for the used media. The default setting for a certain type of media was aquired in the testlabs from Plextor.

VariRec is just a (pretty hilarious) commercial gizmo, forget it.
