Noise?  Bah!  Music!!

I have fond memories of my older electronic typewriter clattering away
at a form letter.  I love that sound.  As far as printers go, it's

ImageWriter in terms of pleasant printer-driven audio output.
ImageWriters can sing quite well with appropriate output.

Or a PDP-11.  I can't imagine where I'd find an 11-03, though.
