The new receiver will probably have more features, but the question is; do you want or need them?
Audessy can be useful if you have a messy acoustic environment to deal with, but is not always a great benefit.
I think you should think hard about exactly what is not satisfying about your system now.
The money might better be spent on better speakers.
