I have been successful using the esd API on the 770. I would be
interested in finding a way to get lower latency though, but I fear it
is not possible, as the esd sound deamon is started hardcoded and I 
don't want to program against a changed root system. 

So, basic esd works. The other option I read is via GStreamer, but I 
haven't tried that.

There are rumours about ALSA support, maybe thats for OS2006 ?
