Please educate me on what problem this "multi channel audio support"
is trying to solve.

I have a very good surround sound preamp driving a 7.2 channel speaker
setup.  My preamp can decode any surround sound format other than the
new HD audio on Bluray or HD-DVD.  It does a very good job at routing
the appropriate sounds to the appropriate speakers.  When fed a Dolby
Digital 2.0 signal, it's ProLogic IIx decoder does an excellent job of
filling all 7.2 speakers with the appropriate audio cues.  When fed a
two channel stereo signal, it has a very good "music" mode which does
an excellent job at divvying up the sound amongst all seven speakers.

How does this "multi channel audio support" improve my situation?
