Zaverel and Jose Alberto,
Thanks a lot for your explanations; I am going to try the "recode ac3
solution" with alsa.

What do you mean by "It's not perfect but that work" ?

  it's cpu extensive because all audio is recoded in ac3.

You can try with this in /etc/asound.conf (for global user ) or ~/.asoundrc
(only user)

pcm.!default {
    type plug
    slave.pcm surroundaudio

ctl.!default {
    type plug
    slave.pcm surroundaudio

pcm.a52encode {
    type a52
    format S16_LE
    channels 6
    rate 48000
    bitrate 448

pcm.surroundaudio {
    type upmix
    slave.pcm a52encode
    channels 6

and start xine with --audio=alsa:surroundaudio
