Thoughts on Xbox one and surround sound

I am curious on peoples thoughts about blu ray surround sound. When I look on here alot of folks are pushing for passthrough spund options to have blu rays send signal directly to receiver. 

Here are my thoughts. From what i have read Microsoft has built there audio block from the ground up and gave it some serious horsepower. Also from what I read the Xbox one decodes the dts hd or dolby and send it to the reciever uncompressed. So technically it should be able to handle any blu ray sound with ease even Dolby atmos which is really Dolby True HD with metadata mixed in for object based sound. On one hand you have a very powerful box (xbox one) with a custom built powerful audio block and the other you have a reciever specifically designed for sound.

I believe with xbox one doing the decoding and the correct adjustments on reciever it should sound the best. 

I am very interested in others theories and thoughts.
