i don't think you'll find one. the choices are to use an app
with NAS support built-in, or to use the audiooss pre-load trick.
there's no kernel-based sound driver which implements a NAS
client-side (which would obviously be cool).
(i keep hearing rumors of alternate remote audio protocols (i.e.,
reinventing NAS), but don't know any details, or whether the rumors
represent anything more than vaporware.)
