How do I enable multiple audio outputs on Windows 7?

For Windows 7, 64 bit: I have a digital SPDIF output to my stereo, which controls speakers in other rooms. I also have a set of speakers connected to the regular audio jack at the computer. This allows me to send music to the kitchen while my child plays games on the computer. Works great. Except when I'm playing games and still want to listen to music. ;-D

There is no way built into Windows 7 to play the same audio on multiple output devices. You can play different audio to different devices, but would need some add-on software to play to two different devices from the same application. Applications could make it possible as well. For example, VLC could choose to output to multiple audio devices simultaneously, but rarely do programs do so.
