Actually, there is a /usr/bin/showaudio. It is in the metamail package.
Is that what you want? :) I wonder what exactly it is for though. It
can play *.au files, but it seems it is intended to do more than that.
(It is a sh script). Hope this helps. :) However, as Colin suggested,
you might like to look at bplay, sox etc. sound software. :)
(For MPEG audio files, splay and mpg123 are great! :)
