I am in the market for a new reciever. I am looking at the 1008 but with Amaz... having the 3007 at a good price I am wondering if it is a better buy than the 1008? Is the only NEW feature on the 1008 that the 3007 doesn't have is the 3D ready? Does the upscaling of the 3007 do a better job than the DCDi of the 1008? Is there any real negative for going with the 3007 over the 1008?
Actually none at all. Unless you are planning 3D I guess. I have had both and they are very close in scaling. Sound is very close as well. Of course you get a little more power with the 3007. It is a tough call.
I think the 1008 can do high and wide together at the expense of not being able to use surround-back. I know the 3007 cannot do this because I have one. That plus 3d. I think there may be one negative to the 1008 but I cannot think of it right now. It does not have Auddyssey X32 like the 3/5008, but neither does the 3007.
