Yes and no.  In other words, not directly, but it might be possible
with esd (maybe with the help of esddsp).

(esd is the Enlightenment Sound Daemon.  I know very little about it
other than that, but apparently it does have some sort of network
support.  Oh, and it's not in any way dependent on Enlightenment.)
