Ahh, that did the trick, doing:
audioctl -w play=44100,2,16,slinear_le
and then using /dev/sound works.  (xmms doesn't work, but that's probably 
xmms, madplay is fine though :)

I also symlinked /dev/audio to /dev/sound, but I'm pondering how safe a thing 
that is :)

Of note is that I just plugged them into my arm32 CATS and just they work 
(the same as the i386), the delights of MI drivers 8)

Any suggestions on a volume control for X, I'm currently using mixerctl?  
(This is the first time I've actually had working audio under NetBSD :)
