Otherwise they look pretty similar.
Wasn't the 807 just released and you are already considering an upgrade to the 1007. With technology you will "never" be "future proof". I just recently began thinking about upgrading my AVR. I have an 8 year old Denon receiver and the only thing they I may be missing of consequence (imo) is some type of built in room calibration (Audyssey MultEQ, MCACC, etc.). Enjoy what you have and then in a few years consider upgrading.
You will never have the latest or the greatest and I haven't read of any ground breaking technology requiring people to upgrade their AVRs annually.
Just my $.02.
