One can take front left and front right channels, compile a 2-channel FLAC/WAV and enjoy those tracks as regular stereo on regular stereo equipment - i.e. this way one gets a normal album version without the over-the-top loud mastering.
I understand what you mean but in this case, more frequencies are loosed.
The 5.1 mix of NYE VR concert, for example keeps all the spectre without the Subwoofer Channel if I undertand but all the frequencies are here.
When I listen 5.1 mixes of PlanetJarre in comparison of the stereo normal tracks, there is an imbalance, a lack of something.
