Slow speed is not bad thing, it was highly recommended in past to burn audio with lowest speed allowed by disc to reduce jitter and reduce errors in audio players. after 20 years i still have working CDR with audio written with 2x speed and 4x but also dye on disc was different (dark blue) those CDR works even on very deteriorated audio players (as audio players are not as good as computer readers and they are tuned for CD only where pitch information is stored in pits not in dye colour change).

For sure audio should be written with CLV speed not CAV and seem speed 8x is last CLV speed before recorder switching to use CAV which may be difficult to be read by audio player.
Verification of audio may be not required but long Audio reading time may imply issues wit recording quality - check some software to rip Audio CD and compare recorded disc by you and pressed (silver) CD - if reading recorded disc is substantially longer than reading silver then it means recording quality is bad.
Like DVDs, as the dyes changed, there's a lower limit on how slow you can burn reliably and for modern 48X or 52X CDRs, 8X is likely too slow.
To be sure, the OP could run both discs through EAC and compare the hashes. But unless you're an audiophile, the error correction on modern players have gotten to the point where read errors are easily recovered.
My turn, who remembers the days before CD players had buffers? Bump the player and instant skip! ;-p
