Yeah, I've noticed that too, but we've been focussing mostly on stability,
not performance.

What you can try is reducing the arts sound buffer (in
KControl->Sound&Multimedia->Sound System, Skip Prevention).  Be careful
though, reduce it too much, and pulseaudio stops working (for me, ymmv). 
The lowest I've been able to make it safely was
23 milleseconds (4 fragments with 1024 bytes).
