Is there a way to watch videos with surround audio on a two channel system? I want to use the stereo system with power amp and speakers to watch videos with 5.1 / 7.1 surround sound in the 2.0 system.
What is the easiest way?

Edit: I researched and saw that I can connect the audio output of the TV to the amplifier or the pre amp.

I want to buy the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR and I will use the stereo speakers to watch movies. The films are multichannel and I do not intend to buy speakers for the surround, I prefer to use the two channel system. My doubt was how to make use of the power amplifier and high end speakers and have a good sound quality. But the solution seems to be easy, just connect the TV or the Zappiti Media Player through the coaxial rca digital audio output on the amplifier or preamp.
