Not sure if it fits the budget, but AudioControl just updated their theater processors: Maestro X9
models. Features include: HDMI 2.0, eARC, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, HDR10, Dolby Vision, Dirac Live calibration, Roon ready. Haven't gotten to test one yet; hoping to.
From the mass-market side, the Marantz AV7705 and AV8805 are fairly well-regarded. Have used the 7705 and it does alright.
No question that Dirac outperforms Audyssey though.
