Thanks, now I got it working. Stereo spread to all 6 channels.
Just a note: I need also to uncheck the 'Center/LFE jack as mic'
switch.

And a question. The output level depends on the
Line _input_ volume. Higher the volume, lower the output level on
all channels.
This happens only if I 'Spread Front to Sourround and Center/LFE'.
Should not the line volume be useless if the jack is set for output ?
Or does its meaning change then...

TIA
