A newer receiver could give you TrueHD and DTS-MA decoding from Blu Ray, room calibration software, USB port for iPod and other smartphones, better speaker terminals (your Sony has cheap spring clips), more clean power, better bass management. networking, Pandora and internet radio streaming, possible wireless A/V control from iPod, iPad or Android phone.
I could see lots of reasons to upgrade. Just depends how much you're willing to spend.
If you want to go the inexpensive route, then just get an iPod dock.
