That is what it does with high end audio ONLY. You will not hear a difference unless you convince yourself you do.

I hear you. Since I've had the receiver I always had to use Dolby or DTS or Stereo whenever watching movies or some music content. They all sounded fine but each one has unique processing. Now that I know how to use direct mode I do not have to worry about that. Not much of a difference in sound quality I admit however I feel better about it.

Dolby Digital PLIIx Cinema (pretty standard on most AVRs) plays every source in modes from HD Audio down to 2 channel (processing it to 5.1 or 7.1 or whatever your setup). "PL" stands for Pro Logic which made 5.1 channels out of two before 5.1 channels even existed if you want to go back decades in history. Most people use Direct, if at all, for sources like SACD.
