does any of the consoles have 5.1 surround output on the streams?

I don't think any CR streams are 5.1. Hell, most JP anime releases are stereo only. Because of that, no console is outputting a true 5.1 mix (not because they can't, but because 5.1 CR mixes don't exist.).

They can probably upmix stereo to 5.1 though. You'll lose everything that makes 5.1 good but technically you may have sound coming out of 5.1 speakers.

The Xbox 360 has 5.1 out thru optical (turn off display discovery in the settings) . However , there is no broadcast in 5.1 . My Samsung Blu-ray would upscale the audio to mimic 5.1 (sounded good too) but CR decided to dump on Smart TV users & Blu-ray players ... Now Blu-ray releases are a different story ...
