In general, displays do a better job of upscaling a signal than receivers.

I have not owned a receiver with the Reon or Realta to test them out.
That's the problem with benchmarks though. The thing could pass the benchmark perfectly, and I think one of their processors does, and not noticeably improve real world video, IMO.
I am not the authority on VPs here, but I am not alone in thinking AVR VP is not as helpful as it might seem on first glance.
