If 150K/sec is non-trivial PCI bandwidth, I think you should probably 
ask for a refund on your motherboard. From a power management point of 
view I'd like to agree that offloading this from the CPU is a good 
thing, but Lennart's right - most newly built machines don't hook these 
up, and adding a control that influences CD volume on a small number of 
machines and does nothing whatsoever on a larger number isn't a sensible 
UI optimisation.
