So, me, maximumspatium, and a few other people are currently working on a PowerPC Mac emulator meant to accurately emulate the hardware.

As of now, this emulator is in early development. It can play the boot-up jingle, but crashes somewhere before reaching the blinking floppy disk screen due to unimplemented CUDA commands (i.e. getting and setting the 6805 address) and interrupts not being fully implemented.

We're also working on implementing a more efficient interpreter.

This emulator also only supports recognizing Old World ROMs, so iMac, iBook, and other New World ROM Macs are not yet supported.

You can see the progress being made over here.

Sheepshaver is not bad, but it definitely uses a lot of hacks to work and even directly hijacks Toolbox calls. Basilisk II works in much of the same way. The aim of DingusPPC is to partially avoid this.

a fork of qemu called qemu screamer is the best imho. emulates ppc with working audio.
