I cannot in Audio/MIDI Setup setup -> Configure Speakers -> Multichannel setup anything, except Stereo (everything else is disabled).

I have iMac Intel Core 2 Duo. Do I need something else? I am connected via Digital Output to my Amplifier.

Thanx for any help.

You would need an external sound card for surround sound. They work off the USB ports. Something like this...

I don't have any suggestions. I don't even own one. I only know of these from doing research into using a Mac Mini in a home theater system and I haven't done that yet. You could go with an Apple TV. They support surround sound but then you don't get all the functionality of a real system.
