Anyone know how I can optimize a soundcloud player?

I tried setting the class as "lazyload" but soundcloud players are really slowing down my product pages. With them I get about a 40/100 and without about a 50/100. I definitely need more optimizing in general, but soundcloud right now is the biggest issue.

Hi @narothaudio,

For lazy loading the sound cloud player, you should be able to do something similar to lazy loading youtube videos here 

Basically initially load the sound cloud placeholder image and only when user clicks on placeholder does the sound cloud widget load and play. Should save a decent amount on your load time.
