NEW Yamaha vs OLD Integra Receiver--which is better?

I am considering replacing my 10 yr old Integra HTR 7.2 receiver with a Yamaha or other receiver in the $500-$600 range. (To replace the Integra would cost $2000). The key driver is to simplify wiring to my new TV (i.e use HDMIs vs component video etc)---my question is: will a NEW receiver in the $500-$600 range produce as good quality sound (because of technology improvement) as my OLD Integra. I know a NEW Integra priced at $2000 will produce better sound than a $500-$600 Yamaha/Denon/Sony---but I am very happy with having the sound as good as it was before----WOULD LOVE TO GET ADVICE FROM THE PROS!!
