Still hoping for a bolt-from-the-sky easy solution for this, i.e., a remote-control app that DOES transmit/replicate sound from the remote Mac.
For now, what I've been doing is (as pointed out above) using iChat -- logging in on the remote machine using ARD, turning on iChat on their end, clicking through an iChat connection on both ends, then monitoring using iChat at my end. It's kludgy and time-consuming, and it takes awhile for the bandwidth utilization on iChat to fully utilize the released bandwidth when I quit the ARD connection, but it works. Sort of.
C'mon, if MI6 and the CIA can do it to us, we can find a way to do it to ourselves... suggestions?
My own comment gave the best solution so far:
Use Apple Remote Desktop, take control of the remote Mac whose sound you wish to monitor, launch iChat at both ends, log into a session at both ends, and then either play media on the remote end to allow you to hear media or software sounds, or activate a listening device such as a mikeon the iChat camera to hear ambient sound at the remote Mac's location.
