I believe SDL can be used like this. I haven't seriously used SFML so I cannot comment there. That said, it should be easy to write a quick test program if you are familiar with these APIs, and only moderately more difficult if you are not familiar.

All the SFML components can be used independently according to the website so this should be feasible in SFML. However I have never tried to do anything like that. I imagine you would just include and link to SFML audio and nothing else and be good to go.

I've never used SDL, but I've used SFML. Yes, you can use it for just audio. It is broken up into several components (system, window, graphics, audio, network, and main (main is only on Windows)). You can use sfml-audio without ever using or linking to the graphics or window packages.

Laurent, SFML's creator, just finished the tutorial on building SFML 2.0 with Visual Studio yesterday, [url="http://www.sfml-dev.org/tutorials/2.0/start-vc.php"]which you can find here[/url].
