Don't forget we're working with 22k audio, not 44k (like CDs). That means that half the bitrate will retain the same quality (i.e. 56/64 kb/s is equivalent to compressing a CD at 112/128 kb/s) Are the samples compressed (in a lossy way) inside the BUN file?

ScummVM certainly doesn't need to be installed. Have a look here, this might help you (not the link at the top though, have a read of the comments):

The first Lucasarts game I bought, Sam & Max. I bought it when it first came out, but lent it to someone after I finished it and never got it back. I re-bought it in the Classics pack on Ebay with DOTT & FoA too, and then I was hooked...
