[NEED HELP] Xonotic reverts to Stereo sound after having set it to 5.1

I'm running Xonotic on my Windows machine for the first time, but I can't get 5.1 surround sound working.
Relevant system specs are:
Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Creative Audigy 2 ZS
Xonotic 0.8.2

When I set Xonotic's channels option to 5.1 it changes back to Stereo when I click on another option screen, start gameplay or when I exit Xonotic right after setting the channels to 5.1 and start Xonotic again.
On the console it prints the following error message:
Failed to open audio device! (Direct Sound CreateSoundBuffer: invalid parameter)
S_Startup: sound output initialization FAILED
S_Startup: initializiing sound output format: 48000Hz, 16 bit, 2 channels...
5.1 surround sound works just fine in my other games.

Does anybody have an idea what I could try before I file a unnecessary bugreport on GitLab?

*EDIT* Bugreport submitted now:
