Will my player/streamer generate multichannel linear PCM?

You will need to check the specifications of your player or streamer. Players that support Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD MA should be able to decompress the audio bitstream into multichannel linear PCM. Devices that only support Dolby Digital and DTS may only support linear PCM with a stereo downmix, or not at all.
