This has been asked before and I don't recall anyone posting a way to do it. May be, but not that I remember. Have you tried doing a google search for this?

You can only have one default audio playback device. Can't have, for example, "Speakers" and "S/PDIF" or "Speakers" and "HDMI" at the same time.
