I replaced Jessie with Stretch without helping this at all. Neither OM drive 
has any connector available for a separate audio cable. KsCD apparently by 
default has use direct digital playback selected.

Could including or not the following in fstab be providing any clues about this?
/dev/sr0        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/sr1        /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0

Those are lines the debian installer put there.
