I was on the fence, deciding between the 1610 and 507. They both do HDMI Audio on inputs, they both come with Audyssey setup mics. The standout differences that I saw were ...
Denon: 480P upscaling, Only need single HDMI cable to TV (regardless of input source, it can be converted to HDMI output)
Onkyo: 1 extra HDMI port, 2nd zone, cheaper, shipping sooner
I got the Onkyo for the extra HDMI port and because it was shipping sooner. All of my source components are 480P or higher already, so the upscaling wasn't too important. I can handle running 2 cables from the receiver to my TV (one HDMI and one Component).
