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
probably only second to a well-designed pattern spewed to an
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.
Oh, there's one!
 Optimized for audio output--not graphical, of course.
