  It could be but I'd imagine it is not significant.  I'll measure the
raw data throughput on the board later.  They say the read through put
on the A-board is something like 2.5MB/sec.  Assuming this ideal
bandwidth achieved, the JMV file is about 1.5MB, so half a second is
spent on reading over 20 seconds or so play time.

  With their CaFe chip on later revision of boards, the bandwidth is
supposed to be 10 times faster.

  Yeah, it is about one order of magnitude range with my Panasonic
