Yes, that’s what I was saying. It doesn’t matter to the receiver if you have a regular speaker mounted in the ceiling or a reflecting speaker mounted on top of a front tower or bookshelf. It sends the same signal either way and the reflecting speakers make the necessary adjustments inside the speaker. So for purposes of upmixers it doesn’t matter if you have reflecting speakers or ceiling mounted regular speakers.
