redirecting sound

I'm using Cygwin/X on my Win2K laptop to connect to
my FreeBSD box and I'd like to redirect the sound
from Rhythmbox (or other music players on the FreeBSD
box) to the laptop.

Here is how I connect from the Win2K laptop:

   startx -> brings up an xterm
   ssh <bsd box> on the xterm
   run bsd commands on the xterm

I can do this easily but the music now comes out of
the speakers on the FreeBSD box. Since it's a wireless
connection I'm not always where the speakers are.

Thanks for any advice,
