Also SACD, but I don't think that is very practical to author as small run
items.  I don't know personally, but seems like you have to shell out for
the Sony authoring package to make that work.

Maybe talk to Mark Waldrep at AIX, https://www.aixrecords.com/
He has been releasing multi-channel recordings for quite a few years.  A
lot are actually concert video style, so maybe don't count as audio only,
but it wouldn't hurt talking to someone experienced in delivering
multichannel recordings from a small market label.
He also has a download site at https://www.itrax.com/ where at least some
of the recordings are available with a selection of WAV or FLAC files in
stereo, 5.1 audience mix, or 5.1 stage mix, so he would also have
experience preparing multi-channel files for download.
