Rather than trying to send sound over the network, why not just
set up a program on the machine with the sound card & speakers,
and use rsh (remote shell) from the headless machine to the
machine that has the sound.

i.e.
if [bad condition]
then
rsh sound-host /usr/local/bin/play-sound Im.dying.wav
fi

Or set up syslogd to do network logging, and have some process on the logging
host read the logs and speak them or play the appropriate wavs. Lots of
other possibilities to send messages and take an action, but piping the audio
sounds like putting the complexity in the wrong place.
