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, 5.0 and 7.1 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!
