So yes, it will pass through 5.1 if the source is 5.1.

Sure wish we had more emphasis on sound around here, it seems to be a very neglected subject as of late.
To most people sound isn't a problem, if it plays fine, then it's fine. After all, all mobos have HD audio chips onboard now... unless of course you have rubbish speakers then we can talk :P
