Not according to the hdparm man page, which implies that this is an
OS/hardware-level feature, and not something individual applications
should worry about:
-E Set cdrom speed. This is NOT necessary for regular operation,
as the drive will automatically switch speeds on its own. But
if you want to play with it, just supply a speed number after
the option, usually a number like 2 or 4.

I'm afraid that for me xine behaves in the same way as all the other CD
playing applications I've tested -- very loud.
I welcome suggestions!
