You can download these from Dolby but the best thing is to get a high quality samples or get a good DVD surround sound setup disc. The disc will put your system to the max. Most of what you will find on the web is simulated surround, that is why I recommend finding some true discrete samples of 5.1/7.1. Forgot to add links, hehe. Dolby site: various including, Dolby, DTS, THX and etc: Quality will depend on your decoder. A nice AV sound processor helps a lot for true discrete surround. Happy surround listening, the Prisoner.'

Wheres the old school buzzing fly? I remember a surroundtest where the fly really seems to fly arround your head.

Same problem here. I do know that the running the 5.1 test will always work because it's playing back a sound file that is already 5.1 encoded. Running any program that will pass its sound to your hardware for 5.1 encoding gets processed as stereo. I'm using a SoundBlaster X-Fi 5.1 Pro and everything worked fine in Windows 7.
