  May I ask why ? Isn't there any Dolby Surround stream out there
anymore, or has an automatic detection algorithm that I'm not aware of
been written since this option was created ?

  This option is one more reason why, in my humble opinion, the
headphone channel mixer is superior (or at least fills different needs)
than the spatializer filter. But it seems that no one cared to reply to
my previous mail on that subject [1].
