PS5 GTA V/O: Surround sound not working

    The old GTA V/O for PS4 made use of surround systems perfectly fine while this one barely has stereo sound, even the option was removed from the in-game settings.

    GTA V/O used to be a benchmark in surround sound for object positioning, but now it's the ONLY game that sounds closer to mono rather than even simple stereo. Every effect like engines, weapon shooting, explosions.. the origin or position from any sound produced by the game can barely be identified, and the only thing coming out as real stereo is the music from the stations, which sounds perfectly fine.

    Note 1: Dolby Digital/DTS works perfectly fine with every other game, including GTA V PS4 version in PS5.

    Note 2: This has been tested on both dedicated surround system with 5 satellite speakers w/subwoofer (5.1) and the Sound BlasterX G6 virtual surround for headphones.

    Note 3: PS5 audio settings have no impact on GTA, and the only way to have stereo is by connecting headphones to the controller, which sounds extremely low quality (on any game) no matter the quality of the headphones.
