Portable CD Tattoos with Yamaha's CRW-F1UX USB 2.0 Burner

DAE With Nero CD-Speed

A test run with Nero CD-Speed confirms the values that we were able to achieve with EAC.

As the screenshot shows, the maximum extraction rate is 42.19x. The drive delivers a precise data flow and the DAE quality achieves the highest possible rating of 10 points. When it comes to seek times, the drive falls behind its competitors once more.

The final "Advanced DAE Quality Test" with Nero CD-Speed shows that the drive can read CD text and sub-channel data.

Comparison with the competition gives us the following picture:

  • I am glad i found this article/review. I have a crw-f1ux minus the needed software. While I am not so interested in discT@2, I would like to use Advanced Audio Master Quality Recording, to create audio cds. Do you know where one can get said software? Yamaha does not have it, nor does Nero answer their phones during stated business hours. I currently use Easy CD creator, but I suspect I need the FULL version of Nero that came with this 2002 unit. While I wait for Nero's reply, would you happen to know? Thank you in advance.
