Why is it a bad idea to burn audio at high speeds?

I’ve heard varrying opinions on what the best speed for burning audio CDs is.

The consensus, however, seems to be that too high or too low and you don’t get a good quality burn. Most people usually recommend anywhere between 4x and 24x depending upon the drive and media one is using.

My question is, what types of errors are people talking about when they say burning too fast can cause errors?

Do they mean physical errors, like the kind Nero CD speed detects, or do they mean errors in how the data is written to the disk? Like the disk will have no physical errors, but that data burned onto the disk will not be an acurate copy of the data on the original CD?

Is it ok to burn audio as fast as you please as long as you’re not getting an C1 or C2 errors? Or do you still have to watch out for inaccurate data reproduction at high speeds, regardless of how few physical errors you get? Thanks.

The answer is Yes.

Yet as far as I’m concerned I’d record my audio strictly using CLV, i.e. 4-16x,
more often using Yamaha’s Audio Master Mode @ best CLV, which is around 7-8x.
Pls, see the scans @ CD-R(W) Media tests
