Greatings to all.
I am planing to make 5.1 soround sound but all speakers to be active.
I am using in this moment behringer DCX 2496 as crosover and DAC for stereo listeniung and
the sound is ok so I want to have the same sound on all other speakers
(center,sur L,sur R and sub)
The Behriner DCX 2496 using SPDIF and aesebu input(stereo).
My question is how to make a bridge between DTS 5.1 procesor to SPDIF-(3x spdif) from PC

page 28 of the user manual shows a stereo signal split across 6 speakers evenly but if you are looking for multiple 5.1 speaker sets, this is probably not the box to use, or you need to use several of the them.

you could use a card which has multiple SPDIF outs? or multiple card using a common clock source?

i'd check into PCI type boards which have the SPDIF outputs and see if they support being ganged. otherwise consider a 7.1 type card and use analog outputs.
