SUMMARY: Audio-CD -> internal loudspeaker?

The answer seems to be No, unless the SUN-CD is hardwired to the audio-input
on the SPARCstation.

One suggestion was to do the above mentioned, and then by using
'cat < /dev/audio > /dev/audio' output the audiosignal to the loudspeaker.

A more pleasant way is of course to connect the CD (via a line attenuator)
to an external amplifier...
