I was trying out cd playing today, and found this page: search?q=cache:4bBr2yXQyiAC:www.powerbooklinux.net/ gh.php%3Fsingle%3D18+powerbook+cd+audio+linux&hl=en&lr=lang_en&ie=UTF-> 8 which suggested using xmms-cdread for playing audio cds, and explains that
there is no way to directly play audio straight from the cdrom to the
soundcard, it needs to be sucked off as data and then played. Unfortunately
this means cpu load when playing cds.

cd playing works really well now.
