Only your mp3 player can tell whether it is surround enabled or stereo mp3.

Why would you wanna convert your stereo file to 5.1?
Its not gonna add anything

mp3's file format dont support 5.1 channels. Unless you know how to separate 2 into mono channels and place them into a discrete 5 channels, its not possible to convert them. This does not mean that you cannot listen to them in 5.1 surround via an AVR

My question is - you re-split MP3 ,imho trash int 2.1 ,5.1,7.2 channels - is it going to sound better

also 5.1 music itself a contravercial subject.In ideal live scenario the singer and orchastration is in the front and from other direction you mostly here reflections..now in real studio/concert mikes are placed at different points and sound is re-mixed to give live effect. So the sound engineer is the person who knows best which is right position and the way it should be mixed.

My question is this software and spending time on it gives talent and caliber of sound engineer?

I strongly feel that insted of this 5.1 upconversion one should collect Flac -pure 2 channel and start enjoying them!!

Three Pink Floyd albums - Dark Side/WYWH/Wall - are available in high bit rate 5.1 and Quadraphonic mixes titled 'Immersion Disc Boxes'. While physically sold as DVD Audio discs, Amazon.com offers mp3 downloads too. You could check if these mp3 files are in 5.1.
