Recent Yamaha CDR drives (CRW-3200, CRW-F1, etc.) have what they call Audio Master Mode in which they claim to reduce jitter by lengthening the pits and (or?) lands on the disc. This is supposed to produce a better sounding audio CD copy. The recording process is slowed to 2X, and the capacity of the disc is somewhat reduced (consistent with longer pits/lands). Can anyone who knows about these things explain why lengthening the pits and/or lands would reduce playback jitter?
