Having lived with the Meridian 861v4 for a long time, and having compared MCPCM in DTS MA and DD/DTS, it just might, I will be home soon and do just the test you propose, and the Denon review with be forthcoming.
I wold love to say yes, the Meridian is AN AMAZING pre/pro, but the new uncompressed audio codecs have the potential to sound better from lessor gear than DD/DTS from the best.
I'll let you know what I find out!
