Digital downloads from surroundmusic.one come as a zip file containing multichannel FLAC files and artwork; Why?
Mediaplayers like Foobar2000 and VLC handle multichannel FLAC. Foobar2000 are playing gapless for albums without gaps between the songs and it can play direct from the zip-file
The forum with most surround interested people: quadraphonicquad.com have been asked: ‘How many of you can play multichannel FLAC files directly?’ 50 out of 52 who have answered CAN play FLAC files directly! 96%! (See more about that and their gear here) – This is another good argument for more artists releasing their surround mixes as digital downloads!
If some want a format other than FLAC they can use free programs like Audacity to convert the formats. FLAC is lossless compressed that means it is 100% same quality as WAV but only have half the size (silent parts in e.g. the center or sub channel have the size of zero where WAV don’t have this feature and takes a lot of space)
A few purchases cause problems during download where it is interrupted. What can be done then?
Try using browsers who can resume a download, like Google Chrome or Firefox or wait some time and try again. Or programs like Flashget can help. Surroundmusic.one is placed in EU and most files are hosted there to keep the expenses down. This can sometime give problems downloading these large zip-files from countries far from EU. Some of the largest files are hosted on U.S. servers to give more smooth downloads to US customers.
If there are problems downloading then contact surroundmusic.one

About music in surround sound:
Why is the music we listen to now, inferior in quality to the CD format from 1980?
Do so few people listen to music in 5.1 surround because not a lot is released??
That is going to change now!
Wireless speakers systems for surround music has now been made. This can make surround music a lot more available!
The development of annual surround sound releases according quadraphonicquad.com:
More and more bands see the sense in releasing their music in the best quality also!
Have also asked over hundred of 16-19 years old students at a high school the question:
If higher quality of music was available in a quality better than mp3 and CD quality will you choose that? Half of them answered yes!
So if it is easy to stream and buy high resolution music then a lot more will listen to it.
It is likely that more and more bands will insist coming out in surround sound!
