Obtaining 5.1channel stereo sound output when an external 5.1channel speaker system is connected directly to the VAIO computer or through the docking station/port replicator.

No. The sound output will not be 5.1channel stereo. This is because the sound card is a standard 2channel stereo audio codec. Therefore, it will not support full 5.1channel stereo sound.
