Reflex Optimizer layers MCACC for more accurate measurement when using enabled speakers. High directivity sound reflects off the ceiling, while low directivity sound directly reaches the ears. This causes a phase shift, making the sound feel uncomfortable. To solve this, Reflex Optimizer aligns the phase of direct and indirect sound, matching the basic tone, and optimizing the upward-oriented frequencies. The result, with Dolby Atmos enabled speakers, is seamless three-dimensional surround sound.

Top Customer Reviews
Coming from the Pioneer Elite VSX-53, I'm impressed. The dialogue separation is unparalleled, it's so clear! And if you do find a movie or program where you can't understand what they're saying (I haven't yet), you can independently adjust the center channel quickly. I really wasn't expecting to hear that much of a difference, but it's noticeable. And power doesn't seem to be an issue, it's plenty loud enough for me. But that probably will depend on the size of the room you're trying to fill.
For surround sound, you might feel like they've left a lot out. But taking into consideration that Dolby Atmos is replacing the Dolby Pro-Logic options, there's really only one selection you need--Dolby Surround, which up-converts any 2.0 or 5.1 signals to 5.1.2 (or 7.1 depending on your speaker settings). And they still have all the other non-surround options available. The DTS:X and DTS Neural X are only available for Bitstream and DTS encoded tracks. NOTE: I have found that switching to Bitstream on anything other than a BluRay disc sends only 2.0 audio, but that will depend on the device you're using.
I haven't used the video up-conversion because my TV already handles that, but it passes through video pretty flawlessly from what I can tell. If you're not sure, you can always check the OSD to see what resolution it's pushing through. But if the up-conversion works as well as the rest of the receiver, I bet it does what you want. NOTE: If you have have a UHD TV, make sure you're using HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 cables, they handle all current video formats (including HDR10 and Dolby Vision).
For a lower-end receiver, it packs some pretty decent bang for your buck.
