In theory, there's a bit you can set in a Red Book CD that says "this
track has preemphasis".  I don't know if any players actually
implement it, or if it's even specified to be compatible with RIAA
preemphasis (75 microsecond?).  There's also a "this track has
four-channel sound" bit which I've never heard of being used.
