    Some may prefer the sound of 2 channel music being sent through 5.1 and that's fine, it's a personal choice and each to their own, but the reality is most music was recorded in 2 channel and IF you want to reproduce it the way the producer intended it to sound, it needs to be decoded in stereo. The idea is that you are at the concert or in the studio and the artist is right in front of you playing. Not coming at you from all directions...

    Specially encoded 5.1 music and movies...different story.

    I figured this would be more technical discussion rather then a personal taste discussion.

    The OP asked how to do it, rather then opinions of 5.1 (as I read it).

    Forget what the naysayers spout off with.

    IT IS WORTH IT.

    A lot of my music sounds so much more defined with the 5.1.

    The 'how to' was answered a lot earlier, when it was suggested to do this in the sound card, not in the wiring.
