I had issues using the "cdparanoia 1- - | play - -t WAV" until I realized
that cdparanaoia was trying to do on the fly error correcting, resulting
in the pause every few seconds.  By using the "-Z" flag, which turned off
the error correcting, I got excellent playback with no skips what-so-ever
on my Pismo.
