I don't mean VoIP style audio. I just mean the regular beeps and bangs that the game makes. You need six computers for a full bridge, and at my LAN the rule is always "don't bring speakers, bring headphones". Obviously, that'll make it a bit hard to listen to the Captain who's right in front of you.
But is the ideal method having six sets of speakers in close proximity? Do the various stations provide overlapping audio? Do you wind up with a cacophony of imperfectly synced noises from each console, or does each one only provide audio specific to its task? Does the "main viewscreen" have its own unique set as well? How about the Captains map or GM station?
There's only so much I can figure out from experimentation with having multiple instances open on one machine :)
