"I really like the TX-NR1007. I was planning to keep the 3007 as my "Winter" receiver but to cut right to the chase, the 1007 gets my vote. Why? It is much more simple for me. Others may opt for the 3007 depending on your set ups. I already have top notch scaling since I am Beta testing the DVDO DUO. So the 3007's (and 5007's) slightly better scaler scaling (very slightly) means nothing to me. Their sounds are the same and all the sound processing modes (even some cool gamig modes) and features are exactly the same. Also with both you get 2 Subwoofer outs which can be set up differently. You do not lose much except for USB options which I would never use. At least you get the iPod Docking options! Oh and you also don't get a back lit remote but that is definitely not the end of the world. You get the same Audyssey MultEQ XT, same internet radio options and features, simultaneous HDMI outputs, ISF modes, THX modes and most important to me 9.2 analog outs so I can feed my B&K 200.7 AMP. That is a heck of a lot of "the same" for less options."
