7.1 surround in Winamp

Hey folks

I just got a Creative Audigy 2 ZS sound card and a 7.1 surround sound speaker setup. Since most MP3s seem to be stereo only, winamp will only use two of my speakers. The audigy 2 zs card is supposed to upsample everything to 24 bit and 7.1, and it does when you use the music player program they bundle with the card. Is there a plugin available yet, or a setting somewhere that will utilize my card's upsampling features in winamp?

I've tried some of the 5.1 surround sound plugins, and it sounds a little better, but still not as good as playing an mp3 with creative's MediaSource. I've also tried activating hardware sound acceleration and selecting the correct driver in the winamp prefs, but still no change.

Any help is appreciated!
