How to setup the surround speakers (5.1 and others) with ALSA

  • Edit the ~/.asoundrc file, create it if it doesn't exist:
gedit ~/.asoundrc
  • Enter the following section:
pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm "surround51"
slave.channels 6
route_policy duplicate
  • This will allow to play the surround output and duplicate the stereo output to all 6 channels (not only front ones).
