I am working on a prototype/demo of an application and it is necessary for me to play back the iOS 6 audio files on a PC. Supposing I was able to access the file system on my iOS device, what path would I find those files under?

Nope. You may just as well close this, because to access them, you'll need to crack Apple's firmware, which isn't allowed. Not that the key is publicly available, but still, it's a legal issue, as is distributing the files if you have somehow managed to crack it. – user10355 Feb 9 '13 at 1:51
Distributing files from the device is certainly out of bounds for this site, but where to find files on a device you own falls within the acceptable boundaries for questions on this site. Jailbreaking is on-topic. – Daniel Feb 9 '13 at 2:02

If your device is jailbroken, you can grab them from /System/Library/Audio/UISounds

Luckily it's super easy to jailbreak at the moment with the recent release of the evasi0n jailbreak tool. – Chris A Feb 9 '13 at 1:58
