Source Monitor - Sum Multichannel to Mono
This checkbox (in the audio preferences) and the function it seems to promise is not working. I often can not hear multi-channel audio if the channels have been configured beyond default, even if this box is checked.
Thanks for the report, we have this issue logged as DVAAU-4202437 (Sum to Mono preference doesn’t work on Adaptive audio).

What is this feature supposed to do? It looks like its taking stereo, surround sound, and other, "multichannel" sounds, and making it mono - through a single speaker or side of a headset. It seems counter intuitive, as most videos/movies/etc today are looking for more channels and speakers to make the sound more three dimensional.
