    Are you sure that multichannel PCM does not exist? That would not require an ac3 encoder. Also this is a very rare case, "normally" you only need multichannel for movies. I don't know of any standard solution which needs what you describe.

      I am 100% sure Kano. Games with multichannel sound and multichannel codecs such as vorbis and aac. If played through digital out without going through a ac3 encoder your output will just be 2 channel.

          Any of the readily available commercial games such as UT/Quake/Doom etc. All support multichannel audio. I believe some of the opensource FPS games do as well.
