Umm.. I am sure u r asking for Windows...but in Linux u can do it very easily.Most Linux uses Pulse server for audio playback.Just set ur environment variable on machine without speakerexport PULSE_SERVER=192.168.1.2where 192.168.1.2 shud be replaced by IP address of machine with speakers (where proper permissions are given).Hint: Google for more info.PS: I do this regularly, when seeing movies on laptop because laptop speaker has low volume so i make it play sound thru desktop speakers.
