Pioneer Japan today unveiled the specifications the eagerly awaited DVR-A08. It?s the first writer to support 16x DVD speed for both the DVD+R format and the DVD-R format and it will burn at 16x speed on selected 8x media. But that?s not all because it will also support ?overspeeding? of 2.4x DVD+R DL media to 4x speed making it the first 4x double layer writer!

The DVR-A08-J is expected to be shipping in Japan in late July and will be available in three different colors; white, black and silver. This version seems to correspond to the XL version in Europe and USA so you can probably expect a cheaper DVR-A08/108 version later with a less fancy front bezel too.
