    I agree. There's no way that I'm aware of to get that multi-channel audio back out is there? I'm assuming that OP is using mutli-channel because their source is the DTS CD. But DTS is already compressed. Use a high bit rate MP3 or WMA and you could get the same quality I'm pretty sure. OP, DTS is a lossy codec and not a particularly efficient one. 5.1 DTS provides about a 256 kbps stream per channel. Downmix that to 2.0 and you could easily get equivalent quality with a VBR MP3 at the extreme settings or using WMA Pro of around 256 kb+.

    what sound output source were you using ? I've broken all my earphones so i just have the nokia original ones, which are quite pathetic. And do you see any difference in the speaker output ? (dont wanna download Madonna :-P actually, dont wanna download that big sized Madonna song :-P)

    So you're missing audio from center, rear left, and rear right channels? Or are you saying the phone downmixes the audio?

    actually his point is that since your earphones (and 3.5mm output on phone) have only 2 channels you can't hear the other 3 channels and so 2 channels or 5 channels don't make a difference.
    I agree with his point.

    The part where my headphones are missing rear left, rear right, center and subwoofer, since they are stereo (2.0). It's kinda like playing 3D movie on a normal 2D screen, some adjustments need to be done. And quite frankly, your response was quite rude.

    And the second guy asking about output I think he was referring to what kind of headphones/speakers were you using. Again, rude.

    It's ok, he obviously is a neophyte in the audio realm, if he digs it it's all good.

    to you maybe, maybe others. Not me. The specs for LPCM are independent of the number of channels.

    Well, the point being, unless you downmix this 5.1 audio to stereo, you'll be listening to 1/3 of the audio.

    ok, get it. the spec did not list 5.1 for lpcm. Thought that would mean it has to downmix it. The next question then is, would streaming to a 5.1 system from the phone mean it has to downmix and then upmix? That of course would be fatal...
    Anyway, I will give lpcm a try on the weekend and see if there is any difference.

    Nice to know, but why would I want to forget FLAC, while my FLAC files are smaller in size and also lossless? To give you an idea, my FLAC files from Lorde's Pure Horoine album ranges from 19.5 MB to 31.2 MB. Nothing as big as your 64MB file.
    I think Microsoft is just trying to lock user in their system and to build a monopoly, otherwise FLAC support should be straightforward and transparent.

    Try VLC media player, it can play FLAC and AIFF, maybe ALAC aswell.

    How do I turn a lossless file into WMA pro btw?
