It is a downgrade in some areas but for what I was after, which was heights + wides at the same time, it is in fact an upgrade. The 1007 simply can't do that but the 1008 can. The slightly less sensitive room correction tech and reduction in maximum power don't matter much to me.

from what i read, seems that the 1008 is a downgrade from the 1007...is this true and for the ones that have the 1008, how do you like it?

If it turns out my TX-NR1008 isn't powerful enough to power my 9.2 surround sound system (small room, moderate to low average volumes, with Dynamic Volume always set to Medium), would it be better to return the receiver and upgrade to the 3008, or should I just buy a two-channel amplifier and amplify the Left and Right speakers, thus reducing the load to something more like 7.2? Obviously I'd have to recalibrate so that the receiver knew not to send as much volume(=amperage?) to the Left and Right speakers.
I doubt I'll run into these eventualities but it doesn't hurt to ask.
