More of a general question regarding 5.1 sound mixes.I have a 5.1 surround sound mp3 mix of an album on my iTunes. Will the album play like a normal stereo mix through my headphones or speakers? I don't want to miss any voices or instruments.


Separately, yes or no without going into detail (because I'm sure this question is already answered), with the right equipment and settings can a 5.1 mix on an iPod properly play through 5.1 speakers?

iPod classic
