Through a receiver that upscales to 1080p, will Wii games be Dolphin quality?

This is what I plan on getting:

For a few hundred more dollars I could get one that upscales to 4k, but my TV is only 1080p.

No, Dolphin natively runs games at higher resolutions. Upscaling merely takes a lower resolution image and expands it across a greater number of pixels. They do not offer the same visual quality.

In addition, the Wii U upscales Wii games regardless. Using a receiver that's capable of upscaling will make no difference.

Will there be any noticeable differences at all playing on a Wii?

Dude get a clue. The answer is no. Dolphin internally increases the resolution in addition to adding other visual tweaks and allowing quick save/load options.

Read something.

How dare someone ask a question instead of googling it. Sheesh.

The HDMI connection will offer a slightly cleaner picture than Component would, and the Wii U probably upscales as well as or better than a decent receiver would, but otherwise it would be pretty much identical.

Tru dat, it's a fine example of "I have every right to be mean for knowing something you don't, which makes me better."
Sometimes google doesn't have the specific question one might be looking for, or perhaps they don't know how to word it to use google advantageously.

Thanks, that's the information I was looking for. I might as well stick to using my Wii U to play Wii games, but I can still take advantage of the upscaling when playing my GameCube games through my Wii.

The Wii U probably upscales better than a receive would; people are noticing games look better played off a U than off a Wii. But it's not dolphin because it's still 480p, the Wii U just treats it better- whatever that translates too.

And the Wii doesn't upscale Cube games because in most cases there isn't anything to scale- 480p is simply a sharper 640x480 than 480i.
