- 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Quad
- Windows 7 x64 (RTM release from the developer network)
- Soundblaster X-Fi Fatal1ty
- Winamp 5.56

I did a fresh install of Winamp 5.56 on the latest (and supposedly RTM release) of Windows 7 x64.

Under "General Preferences > Playback" I have 'Allow 24bit' checked/enabled.

When I attempt to play a 5-Channel .FLAC file, 96000hz, Winamp throws this error:

Error creating DirectSound buffer.
Error code: 80070057

All stereophonic files are playing fine, Winamp only chokes on surround-sound recordings. I attempted making all sorts of adjustments in Windows 7, in the Soundblaster options, and in Winamp, but no luck getting it to play. I investigated 3rd party plugins but no luck with those.

I fired up Foobar2000 v0.9.6.9 and it is correctly reading and outputting 5 and 6 channel recordings.
