Where do you see the improvement?

Do you get better or worse results with varirec enabled, I don't?

The only varirec effect I can measure is the speed limitation:

Don't tell anyone, but you can emulate varirec drive independend with
speed=4, if you want "improvement" use speed=8.

If varirec and manual die selection would increase the quality,
it would mean that Plextor's OPC didn't work.

Either way, varirec is a marketing joke.
