speaker-test helped me when I experimented with some home built hardware a few 
years back. I liked the voice feedback that comes with -twav

For continuous 2 channel test I use:
speaker-test -c2 -twav

end with ctrl-c

For single shot 2 channel:
speaker-test -c2 -twav -l1

For 5 it would be:
speaker-test -c5 -twav

For a single shot on channel 3 id use:
speaker-test -c5 -s3 -twav
