I believe a previous post (by Bob O?) implied that in the player,  
extra work spinning the disc to keep the read speed steady resulted  
in starving the audio circuits due to poor power supply design. It's  
as though a record with an off-center center hole had to be speed  
corrected on each revolution, draining off audio processing power.  
Did I interpret that correctly?

Is anyone suggesting that fluctuation in the rotating of the disc  
itself can have ANY effect on playback?  Do I misunderstand  
something?  Since the data stream is buffered the speed with which it  
is read from the disc cannot possibly have any effect on the playback  
speed which is controlled by the DAC clock.  So what is the above  
quote intended to convey?
