    Does anyone know if this card will output a 6.1 audio signal via it's optical S/PDIF output?

    The box says it supports 5.1 but I would guess if the output stream is 6.1 then it will pass that to my 6.1 amp which will do the processing. Not looking for any on card processing.

    Anyone any ideas?

    Thanks.

    If it does DD and DTS 5.1 it will also be able to do 6/7.1. My understanding though is that the Fortissimo II is one of the poorest cards on the market. Id stay clear, I'd buy a SB Live 4.1 ahead of that one.

    I agree. I had this card and it was a disaster. It contributed to stutter and the sound would stop it I so much as looked at the keyboard. It also caused freezing of the picture with TT software that I never have experienced with my MAudio
