Once you use a buffer / FIFO you'll want to read what was written to it and
you'll want to do that in sync with a clock signal - that's the whole point
of buffering in the first place. Did you think I wanted to poll the poor
buffer at arbitrary intervals and then pass on whatever was in there as fast
as possible. (I almost want to know how that sounds now :))

Possibly. Not for me once you factor in I'll probably butcher three
squeezeboxes in the process.

Ah, they are not? I stand corrected and apologize for having you pegged as
one after the "de-magnetize your CDs" site.
