Adjust for Audacious drop-outs?

On a 14.04.2 i386 desktop with a P4 @ 3.0GHz + Hyperthreading and 2GB, I
find that Audacious skips/drops out a lot at the beginning of a CD track
(or MP3), then after the first 30 seconds or so the problem decreases
and is only occasional (perhaps 1-2x minute).
Starting from the default settings for everything, I increased the
buffering from 500 ms to 1000, 1500, 2000 then 3000). There was some
improvement but the problem did not disappear.
By contrast, playback by VLC Player (granted, a heavier program) was as
smooth as butter from the first note on both CD's and MP3's.
Can I solve the Audacious problem with further settings changes?
