You may not be able to get surround sound for WiiU.

I've seen it confirmed that the WiiU only does surround sound using uncompressed PCM. If your amp doesn't support it then its only stereo for you. The WiiU does not support Dolby digital or DTS.

Assuming you can't get 5.1 surround using hdmi like you could for years already.

Not an issue for me, but an odd choice. Source?

Tech specs on Games website. It sounds true as why would nintendo license Dolby or DTS when there are no optical connections.

I have to buy a new amp.
