I have an audio file which is pure 5.1 (6 channel) (see screenshot). This file has Audio bitrate of ~4330 kbps and is over 200 MB in size, not that its troubling but is there a way to convert it to .MP3  / .MP4 / .WMA while not losing any of the audio channel information or clarity (preferably a loseless codec)

Screenshot showing 6 channel
Cheers,
Nishant

I use FormatFactory for video conversions, it has audio conversion also (I haven't tried it). It is a free download  (the video converter works great, so I would imagine the audio would too). Let me know if it works for you.

Hi,

For multichannel audio, AAC (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Advanced_Audio_Coding) is the way to go. This can be created by several free encoders: http://www.rarewares.org/aac-encoders.php (or iTunes).
