Network audio and KDE

I have a laptop that more or less permanently lives next my desktop. I often
play videos on it while working on the desktop.
What I'd like to do is to make use of network audio to shunt the audio stream
from the laptop to the desktop machine, taking advantage of the vastly better
300W 5.1 speaker system on that machine. The two machines are connected with
a Gig-E LAN, so bandwidth and even latency aren't an issue.
It appears that ARTS should be able to handle this, but I can't figure out how
to make it work. I have figured out how to run NAS (network audio system) on
the desktop and to use audiooss on the laptop (setting the AUDIOSERVER env
variable, using LD_PRELOAD to wrap access to /dev/dsp and then forcing the
video player to use OSS) but that's ugly and a pain to set up.
Does anyone know how to make use of ARTS' network audio features? Or have a
less hackish solution they can recommend?
