Audio Track Extraction
Both drives from Samsung have a zero offset, while the AOpen’s offset is rather big. The Samsung TS-H492A has the best access time, but the other two don’t lose it too much. All the drives had the same maximum “on-the-fly” copy speed, 16x. It is good that none of the drives had problems reading the sub-channel data, but both Samsungs turned to be unable to work with Lead-In and Lead-Out zones of the disc.
The AOpen seems to be the best in this test, but you should take into account the rather high offset value of this model. It is also not among the fastest devices as concerns processing damaged Audio CDs.
