Boot chime works great!

As for any other audio, I usually turn it off to avoid some crashing possibilities.

Yesterday, today, or tomorrow?

It's aiming for accurate support of three hardware platforms; eventually, it should support all OSes those computers supported.

The target hardware is:

Power Macintosh 6100
Power Macintosh 7500
Power Macintosh G3 (Beige)

You can already try out the WebASM version here: https://infinitemac.org/ under Custom:Experimental and play with hardware configurations and OS versions to see what works and what doesn't. And now, you can also try out the Windows build linked in this thread :)

Or, from the link at the top of the page:

Known Working OSes
Disk Tools (7.1.2 - 8.5)
Mac OS 7.1.2 - 9.2.2 (from CD)
Mac OS 7.5.3 - 9.2.2 (from Hard Disk)
OpenDarwin 6.6.2
