The 707 has Burr-Brown DACs and has Audyssey room correction, I cannot find out what DACs the HK has, but the Audyssey is missing for sure. There is an automated speaker setup in it, though Audyssey is a very good room correction and setup tool. Though, make you choice by yourself of course
I am very happy with my 707, if you want OSD (volume on screen when watching anything) and 24P it isn't the receiver for you as 24P skips a frame every so often when using OSD, though disabling OSD completely solves it. Apart from that the device is working perfect!

Run in pure mode with levels matched, you'd be hard pressed to hear a difference between two $500 receivers. With EQ engaged, you'll definitely hear a difference. Having heard both, Audyssey MultEQ is way ahead of HK's EQ system. HK receivers are slick and have excellent amp sections. Not to mention one of the best GUI's around. Where they fall down is reliability and HDMI issues. Onkyo's also have a fair share of reliability issues. Any reason why Denon isn't on the list?
