I do not know about PDP-11s, but PDP-12s (and LINC-8s, I think), have a
speaker connected to the LSB of the accumulator (volume knob provided, of
course). Additionally, the LINC-8 has a bell that chimes when the halt
instruction is executed.

For funding a museum, why not cut an album of all of your favorite minis
in action? Sure to go to the top of the charts...
