is that due to design, or is that just how it works out, because the
hardware is uniform? (i.e., would a really really long song be more
vulnerable to long-term drift?)

it's a slick project. we use the mpc5200 in one of our designs
at work -- it's a good processor. i've certainly thought that
there must be a better way to do music distribution than
dedicating an entire linux workstation to the task. :-) i didn't
