I don't think it would impact the sound in that regard, being warm or bright. I do believe it would benefit the sound at higher listening levels where I've personally experienced distortion which I've not been able to rectify through "manual mcacc". I've had the receiver for a couple months now and I'm still trying to get it dialed in. I'm a bit frustrating to be honest, especially since my previous receiver that I paid $190 for sounded so much cleaner.
