    5.1 stereo requires 5 channels Left-Front, Right-Front, Left-Rear, Right-Rear, Sub. The Icon Cube is actually an audio interface. 2-channels. Left channel. Right channel. That's it. The Cube is not a 5.1 sound card. It's designed for audio recording, which is 2-channel stereo. Not 5-channel stereo. I don't know of any way to turn an audio interface into a 5.1 stereo system.

    Just to clarify, Nick98338, 5.1 surround is six channels. The 5 are Left Front, Center, Right Front, Left Surround, and Right Surround and the .1 is the subwoofer.
