this will do 5.1 and give you room to grow. no sure there are any AVRs that are just 5.1 anymore. With Atmos you will need those extra height channels.

Keep in mind in the future you should get a receiver that has eARC which this does not have.

It's going to be the new standard as you start to get more and more content from the TV directly.

There isn't any content built into tvs such as Netflix vudu etc. that will benefit from having eARC. All streaming services have compressed audio, which regular ARC can pass just fine.

My LG TV has Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Video included, and there are TVs with Roku included, so eARC is definitely beneficial. Having said that, an Apple TV, Fire TV, Xbox, or Roku is a better way to go, plugging straight into your receiver.

if youre absolutely set on a 5.1 and never plan on upgrading to more or atmos, then check the following:

Onkyo tx-sr393
Denon S540bt
yamaha v385

if youre not in a hurry black friday is right aroudn the corner and we can expect some of the lowest prices for AV receivers that time of year

It still doesn't matter if your tv has roku built in or streaming apps such as Netflix YouTube etc. All streaming content compresses audio which, again, can be passed through regular ARC. If you were to connect a bluray for example directly to your tv and wanted to pass uncompressed audio to your reciever that's where eARC comes in, as ARC cannot pass uncompressed audio.

In that case, will the uncompressed audio stream automatically get downconverted to a compressed format (multi-channel)?

No because there isn't any uncompressed audio streams to downconvert in the first place. If you meant the uncompressed audio from blurays that travel from tv to reciever via arc then yes, it will be downconverted. But that's a situation only for older recievers with arc and no passthrough functions
