You can utilise 6 channels in the Hardware Interface using the following setup:

1: = Front Left
2: - Front Right
3: - Centre
4: - LFE
5: - Rear Left
6: - Rear Right

now you can feed these to a 5.1 capable soundcard. If you have only a 2-channel / stereo out this sort of defeats the object, as you only end up with 2 physical channels of audio to 2 speakers. If you have multi output channel soundcard (ie Delta 1010), then you can connect each speaker (in mono) to each channel and in the correct speaker formation, to emulate 5.1 surround. If you do it to 5.1 speakers (as listed above) then make sure your pans on the soundcard are centred, and in Reason you can use your panning freely. this is how I would do it

Exporting tracks however would have to be done in stereo pairs, and then 'remerged' together as a 5.1 file in something like Cubase / Logic / Sonar / Soundforge / Bias Peak(?).

So in one sense yes for live as long as you have the correct speaker setup. Also remember to turn on the output channels on the Audio preferences. That tells you how many inputs & Outputs you have, best be set to ASIO
