Both devices have the same and very small offset; the GO-0804A extracted audio tracks without errors and faster than the junior model did (which made 223 errors). Both drives can perform an on-the-fly copy of audio data at up to 16x speed, but the GO-0804A is again errorless, while the junior model has problems almost at all speeds, save for 8x and 10x. The drives can read the sub-channel data, and the GO-0804A can also read the Lead-In/Out areas. According to EAC, the GO-0404 cannot return C2 errors, but we’ll see below that it can.
The accuracy of C2 error returns will be examined in the next test along with reading of a bad Audio CD. The GO-0804A comes first.
As you see, the quality of reading the damaged disc is rather low, 58.7 points out of 100 possible, with 20 skips. That’s why the C2 Accuracy parameter is so low – 57.6% only. It would be higher if the read quality was better and there were no skips. Now, let’s see what we have with the junior model.
This model can really return C2 errors and does it with 100% accuracy. It has an excellent read quality with the bad Audio CD – 82.1 points with zero skips.
