Sony CDU-926S -or- Sony Spressa 940S

Post by CAZZ » Mon, 16 Jun 1997 04:00:00



I'm lookin to buy a CD-R drive.  From what I have read Sony seems to
make solid cd-r drives.  It seems that the new Spressa 940S has replaced
the older CDU-926S.  
Anyone out there own the Spressa 940S?  I thought that I'd wait for some
feedback before buying the drive.

Any info would be apreciated.

Grazie in advance . . .

Isn't Spreza 940S an old 2x/4x writer kit that includes CDU924?
Spressa 960S kit includes the CDU 926. I understand that there's a
CDU928 2x/8x drive in the works which is probably going to be sold as
a part of a Spressa 980 kit.

The 940 is the older one using the 924S, yes. The 926S drive is the newer,
non-DAO model.

Take the 924 (940). It is older, but 1Mo cache (512ko for 926) and
supports Dao. I had a 924, sold it for a 926 and took back my 924 after
2 buffers underrun !
The new 928 will be IDE.

I am also looking to get a 960.  However, I also heard that I should
getone with both dao
and tao supports.  Does 940 support tao?  Is it true that 960 is only
better than 940 in its
read speed (from 4x to 6x)?
What are the differences between 924 and 940, 926 and 960?  If one needs

to choose between
dao and tao support, which on is more preferable? Thanks.

First of all, there are four drives, each of which has several names:

        920, 9211
        940, 9411, 924
        960, 9611, 926
        980, 9811, 928

924 is a bare drive, 940 is a drive bundled with software and cables,
and 9411 is the same drive in an external case.  The 928 is new and
may not be available yet.

The 926/960/9611 has replaced the previous two in Sony's lineup.  The only
differences between them are the read speed (2x, 4x, 6x, 8x), cache size,
and the removal of disc-at-once recording from the 926 (and, I'm told, from
the 928 as well).

I'd prefer the 924 over the 926, but I'm one of those weird people who
thinks they need to use disc-at-once recording for everything.
