    Can't you just hook up a USB 5.1 External Sound card?

    Easy said, hehe. Sadly not many 5.1/7.1 USB Audio solutions are out which work with Core Audio, most of them are discontinued anyway with no replacement.

    The best way is maybe to buy an DTS/Pro Logic Receiver or a Decoderbox.

    Also the OSX86 Hardware Compatibility List shows few options.

    The Sweex 5.1 USB SC004 (v2) seems to work out of the box.
