This Command will Display up to you a list of audio output :

3) – go head and edit the file “.vmx” Exemple : “OS X Mavericks.vmx”
   a) – Change sound.fileName  and   sound.autodetect to reflect the audio output you identified from step 2 .

sound.fileName = "front:CARD=PCH,DEV=0"
sound.autodetect = "FALSE"


4) Now That’s it the sound now should work .
