Windows 7: Sharing speakers

Sharing speakers

Hi all,

I know this could be trivial but i've googled for quite long time w/o success in regards to this *specific* case of mine...

I want to have one vista pc connected to speakers, and have several other PCs use those speakers as if it were their own, over the network.

I'm not talking about movies/mp3/specific player's plugin but rather "whatever my soundcard is about to play".

Main target is freeware but if i'll have no choice then commercial as well.

Motivation : several (floating) laptops in one room. One set of speakers. All windows

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

I know of one way, but it will require bluetooth and a sound mixer, and probably cost more than $100
