The TX-SR607 will be the first receiver to feature Dolby ProLogic IIz sound processing, which can expand existing 7.1 soundtracks to 9.1, routing some of the audio to "front high speakers," which are positioned above your standard front speakers. Dolby ProLogic IIz sound processing is the TX-SR607's most touted feature in the news release, but we're guessing this won't be a huge draw for most buyers who already feel like a 5.1 system involves too many speakers and wires.
