I have a problem with Asio output. I have 5.1 speakers and when I play stereo sources I hear the sound even from the rear speakers. Is it a bug or is it normal? I don't have this problem with DirectSound or Wasapi

the asio speaker output can be configured by clicking the Configure button in the player preferences panel

Asio is configured for my 5.1 speakers.

Have I to configure Asio settings and disable the rear speakers?

I did, however this way multichannel sources are reproduced as stereo and I'm not satisfied with this solution

I always thought that this was a MusicBee issue, now I changed my mind. I tried JRiver Media Center 24 and I have the same problem. So it's a problem of my soundcard.
However Media Center allows me to mix the stereo source to 2.1. It would be nice if even MusicBee had this  feature
