No Audio from Google Chrome

q: The computer plays audio fine, but audio from Google Chrome (eg: Pandora) will not play.  Further, Chrome does not show up in the Audio Mixer with other applications.
a: After some digging this seemed like a pretty common issue.

One recommendation was:

As a possible workaround (mostly to confirm/refute hypotheses), could people try one or both of the following:
(1) Setting their speaker config to 2/2.1 if it's currently set up for 5/5.1/7/7.1, etc.?
(2) Setting their default audio format to 48 kHz (or 96 kHz, or even 88.2 kHz)?

In the end, the user changed their settings from:
Mono & 16 bit 44kHZ to:
Stereo and now it works.
