powerbook titaniumG4 and 5.1 sound - Mac Portable

Hi, I look toward buying an apple powerbook G4 to replace my desktop PC. One thing i want to do is watching DVD on it. Is there an spdif output or something that permit the use of 5.1 sound ? Right now my PC is using an old soundblaster connected to my DTS amp with spdif. How can you do that on a powerbook ? best regards, Ghislain....

    ah, thanks a lot. I really hope that it will support DTS very soon as this
    is a minimum for a great multimedia machine to be able to read dvd with
    the DTS or alike sound.

    best regards,
