Default Newbie Receiver question about Headphones and surround

I have a receiver newbie question. I canít use a home theatre because I have kids so Iím currently using headphones plugged into an old Harman kardon receiver which support the ę Dolby Headphone Ľ surround mode.

I find it excellent and immersive without sounding weird like the surround modes of some gaming headsets where the sound often sounds like in a bathroom

. My question: do all newer receivers (that support Atmos and dts:x for exemple) have some kind of surround mode for headphones, or was it just a feature of my Harman Kardon AVR144 receiver?

I'm looking to eventually replace it but wouldn't want to lose that feature because it's the next best thing to having speakers in the room.

I am so glad you asked this question. I learned something new about my receiver today.

I don't know about other brands, but Yamaha has a proprietary system called "Silent Cinema" that appears to be based on Dolby Headphone. I just read in the manual for my RX-A3050 that I can activate it just by plugging in my headphones and selecting any surround mode. I'll have to try this out tonight. I've been switching to stereo mode when using my headphones.

So, any news?
