I would never burn an Audio CD with more then double speed. With 4x the
laser is not burning the data as exact as with 2x and this can cause problems
on cheeper AudioCDplayers with a less good error correction.

BTW Digital Audio Extractor is exactly doing what you describe. It creates
on your harddisc. But it does not like the faster CDrom drives as inn G3s.
