Izotrope's seems to be a step forward, based on examples I've heard. Again, don't expect miracles, any DSP will leave nasty artifacts if over-used. Usually, the "default" settings remove too much content for my ears (ambience around instruments, "air and space," room-tone, etc), so I would recommend "default-minus," never "default-plus."
