Back in the day when Dolby Pro-Logic amplifiers were the latest thing you could listen to films at home in nearly the same way as in the cinema because when the film was made the sound tracks were recorded so as to sound more effective.
The speakers at home were thus:
Sub Woofers were not an option on low end Dolby amps
Similar to your speakers in fact.
Take a scene where someone was talking and in this case only the center speak would be active whereas a war scene where a helicopter was coming in from the back of you the rear speakers would kick in plus all the others of course.
As you can see all this would make the viewing experience a lot better.
Now back to your issue
It would seem to me that Apple have encoded the tracks in iTunes to encompass 5.1 but not actually be like it in the proper sense.
The reason why you are only getting Stereo when playing other stuff is because they are not encoded but this is where EAX and CMSS-3D come in as they offer a kind of pseudo surround sound aspect.
Hope this helps Nathan.
