You're correct to assume there's no post-processing, aside from volume, when using the multichannel direct inputs. I do the same thing with a Marantz receiver, but there's nothing at all wrong with the sound from that approach. In fact, since I prefer to keep my bass and treble controls in their "flat" positions, it doesn't make a whole lot of difference. The separation is phenomenal, and to me, that's why I bought the unit. In fact, after nearly a year of having this little box hooked up, I'm still re-discovering my quad record collection.Recently purchased the SMv2 and have hooked it up to the direct multichannel inputs on the onkyo assuming no post processing by the amplifier but something to check next time I’m back at home to use it - unfortunately I’m working in rural area and only had a few hours with unit last weekend.
