Thank you.  

"Use Direct Digital Playback" made the difference!

Looks as though my version of the KsCD Manual needs updating. It
contains no reference to what "Use Direct Digital Playback" does; nor
any information on the correct entry to the "audio device". On my box
that could be left blank. On the other hand, the "audio backend" needed
to be set to "arts" (despite the fact that my sound setup is configured
to use "alsa").
