The "Pure Direct" mode I was speaking of is in the receiver or pre/pro, not the mode in the player. You don't want to further process the high-quality signal sent from the player.
For those who prefer PLIIX, etc. for multichannel matrixing of stereo tracks, that's fine. However, you are altering the original presentation of the recording. There are many extremely fine stereo recordings that sound incredible and virtually 3D when played on a well-set-up system.
