That is the age old question, LOL. I have asked the exact same thing and there really isn't a ready answer (at least from what I've found).
Is it better? Well, from a technical point of view it has more resolution which can be beneficial in some circumstances.
Do you need it? No one can answer that for you.
My experience is that I use regular MultiEQ for movies but listen to 2 channel on a direct/pass through mode. I am not sure I like what it does in my room for music. Could be user error could be more my room all bundled with personal preference.
As to what KH said - he has a point also. You might not need the added beef of the NR1007 and, yes, you can at a later point add a 3channel amp to your system. An Emotiva XPA-3 is perfect for that situation (had one myself for a while.) In the end it boils down to how structure you're audio "investment" - all upfront or piecemeal.
I'm sure you'll have fun either way, both are good receivers.
