I'm trying to use the 5.1 sound on my Pavilion Power 580-154NG Desktop PC, which was sold with a standard stereo outlet.
The mainboard definitely supports 5.1-Surround-Sound.
It is just not equipped with the necessary hardware to connect a 5.1 sound system.
HP Support says: Additional hardware is necessary to use the 5.1-Surround-Sound. 🤔
Question: What type of hardware is needed and do I have to physically manipulate the mainboard?

It has few audio ports at its back.
You need (have to buy) a suitable 5.1 speakers system to connect to port 1 or port 8 above. For example
Note: I will move this post to Desktops area

First of all... thanks for your answer!
I am truely aware of the fact, that the mainboard itself won't produce any sound w/o a speaker or speaker system and the necessary amplification (exept for maybe the system beeps).
However, my question was aimed in a different direction.
The following sentence can be found in the HP System description you mentioned:
"High Definition (Azalia) 5.1 channel audio support" ....and then...
