The 'cdcontrol' utility uses the CD drive itself to play the CD, it
does not use the system digital audio device -- in fact it does not
need sound support at all.

To use the system audio device you can use a digital player -- many
are available from the ports collection, for example "mpg321" for MP3
files. To play CDs you can rip the tracks from the CD with a tool such
as "cdda2wav",  "cdparanoia" or others, and then play the digital
files with an audio player .
The "aiffopen" utility is an example of such a player which reads AIFF
files only.
