Well I've seen posts relating to Flac file support going back at least 24 months. I'm very happy to say my systems works.............but only for mono/stereo files. 5.1 surround files are not working for any of the specified formats, AAC, M4A, WMA, OGG, FLAC. Is it just my system or is it a design defficiency of the product. Comments?

Thanks for the post. At this time the system does not support 5.1 audio files via SoundTouch (though they are supported via HDMI or Optical). I can put in a request to see if this is something that can be changed or added to the system with a software update.
Hello Brandon, Thanks for your prompt reply, at least I know at the moment I'm "flogging a dead horse" in this respect. I'm working on a possible workaround using Dreamstream and a Chromecast HDMI dongle. However this involves mate/demating of the HDMI input to the soundbar which is not ideal and not good for reliability due to wear and tear. Like you, I'm suspecting a sw patch could enable some multi-channel capability. Certainly I think this would more realise the potential of the product, I have the soundtouch 300 soundbar +matching wireless subwoofer and surround speakers. As an example "FLAC support up to 6 channels" would look good on the spec sheet would it not? So would you mind dropping this in the suggestion box on my behalf, thank you very much. SH
