    Does anyone here know if the Microsoft Lumia 950 with Windows 10M can now record in 5.1 audio? from what I understand it has 4 microphones. Mine has not come in yet (will tomorrow) and the main reason I bought it was because I heard they were capable of recording up to 140DB without clipping and had the ability to record audio omni directional in 5.1 audio.

    However, it seems that was the case with the Lumia 930 with Windows 8.1, and I ordered the Lumia 950 with Windows 10. From looking around online, it seems the windows 10 update removed the 5.1 audio recording capability and it now only records in stereo. and I haven't been able to find any recent updates if Windows 10 ever had an update that changes that or allows the phone to record in 5.1

    I also can't find any specific information about the microphones that are on the Lumia 950 and if those microphones have the same cabilility to record up to 140db without clipping.

    Any help is appreciated thanks

    Yes, 950 does have 4 microphone, but no dolby so it only recored in stereo unlike 930/1520 and yest the microphone is the same as the one in 930/1520 except that its more reliable than the one found in 930

    The sound it record from the stock w10m camera app is only at 190ishkbps bitrate, if you want to go a little bit higher, you can sideload lumia camera beta app, which will enable the bass filter and record at 252kbps bitrate but still no dolby 5.1.
