Okay, so you can't setup 6 channel stereo with an external soundcard, but what about using optical out? I just bought a gently used Creative DDTS-100 so I can set up my Xbox and DVD player in my office. It has optical in (among other formats) and analog out, and does allow for simple passthrough, I believe. It encodes/decodes DTS (including Neo:6) and Dolby Digital (including ProLogic II Movie and Music modes), so it can replace the FireWave. Or: it has an analog switchbox, so I can keep the FireWave and use it in combination with the DDTS-100.
Just to get back to the point of this post, I want to know: using Apple's Audio MIDI Setup Utility, is it possible to configure 6 channel stereo using optical output?
