It don't support the 6.1 speakers, but you can use the 6.1 or 7.1 speakers system without the rear channel speakers because the 5.1 sound card limits speaker out connectors.

When you go to Creative website, you can see the Creative t6160 is the 5.1 Desktop Speaker System for Gaming.

And the 6.1 channel speakers is the same as the 5.1 system, except an additional rear center channel speaker for sound effects.
