    Default Multichannel Test Files (FLAC) with various channels/sample rates

    I've been checking out compatibility of various MCH playback devices and thought I'd share these MCH FLAC test files.

    There's 3 sets based on sample rates (44/16, 48/24 and 96/24). Each set contains a quad (4.0), 5.1 and 5.0 channel test flac. Its not music its just a voice naming each channel in turn.

    I used all these yesterday to test a Car Audio System (Meridian Surround System 825 which comes in various Land Rover and Jaguar vehicles). All played successfully with correct channel assignments.

    I updated the Multichannel Test Files zip today to include 7.1 test FLACs for 48/24 and 96/24 (same link in first post).

    The interesting thing is that it showed me 7.1 on a 5.1 system combines left rear/side surrounds into a single left side channel on decode (same with right). So people with a 7.1 FLAC won't lose and channel info when played back on a 5.1 system!
