4K Pass-Through and Upscaling Supports Latest High Resolution Video Formats

This AV receiver's HDMI input/output supports 4K video image pass-through. It also can perform 4K upscaling to boost a lower resolution image to super high-def resolution. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats.



HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel

3D means the receiver can handle 3D signal data. The Audio Return Channel function enables data to be sent and received via the same HDMI cable, so you can hear the sound from the TV via a single HDMI cable, with no need for an extra optical cable.

High Quality Video Processing with Edge Adaptive Deinterlacing

In ordinary deinterlacing, pixels in areas of movement are interpolated by upper and lower ranges. This causes jaggies in diagonal lines. Edge adaptive deinterlacing detects the direction of the line and interpolates the pixels optimally.

Network Functions

This AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation. You can connect the receiver to a PC to enjoy Internet Radio and operate your system via Web Browser Control. The AV Controller app (from iTunes App Store or Android Market) lets you control various functions from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android phones.



Wireless Network Adapter Included

The RX-V773WA includes the YWA-10 WiFi network adapter allowing the receiver to be connected with a wireless LAN.

The YWA-10 offers:
  • IEEE 802.11b/g/n compatible
  • Auto setup by WPS (WiFi Protected Setup)
  • Manual setup by PC
  • 2 LAN ports to support up to 2 network products
  • Powered by the DC out USB connection on the back of the RX-V773

AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient Operation

This AV Receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller app that is downloadable from the iTunes App Store or Android Market to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android phones. A tablet version is also available.

AirPlay Allows Streaming Music to AV receiver

This AV receiver supports AirPlay, which means they can accept wireless music streaming from iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, as well as from iTunes on Macs or PCs. This makes it easy to enjoy music from your mobile devices or computer on your home theater system. You can use view metadata such as song title, artist name as well as album art* via AV receiver's on-screen display.

*Some models don't support album art display.

USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad on the Front Panel

A USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected, even if the receiver is off. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver's remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone/iPad music playback functions.

YPAO-R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) Sound Optimization with Multi-Point Measurement

YPAO-R.S.C. analyzes room acoustics and measures various speaker characteristics, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of eight listening positions. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds.



Advanced Multi-Language GUI On-Screen Display



Yamaha's latest Graphical User Interface has a high resolution display with clear, easy-to-use menus and also includes a selectable Status Bar that shows input source, volume level, DSP mode and audio format. The GUI provides a choice of seven languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish and Chinese, and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures.

Intelligent Amp Assign

Intelligent Amp Assign automatically assigns amplifier channels to certain speakers, depending on what functions are selected. For example, in a 7.1-channel system, when Zone 2 is off, all 7.1 channels will be used in the Main Zone. However, when Zone 2 is on, power to the two Surround Back channels will be directed to the two speakers in Zone 2, and the Main Zone will receive 5.1 channels of power. Similarly, when CINEMA DSP 3D is on, the two Front Presence speakers will be powered and not the two Surround Back speakers. When CINEMA DSP 3D is off, this situation is reversed. Thanks to Intelligent Amp Assign, there's no need to switch the speaker cables on the rear of the receiver—one more way Yamaha makes your life a little easier.



SCENE for One-Touch Start

Pressing a SCENE button powers on the AV Receiver and selects the input source and DSP mode. You can re-set the buttons for different sources by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds.

HDMI Front Panel Input

In addition to the large number of HDMI inputs on the rear panel, there is also one on the front panel. This gives you a convenient way to quickly plug in a digital camera or camcorder for highest quality pictures.

Input Selection in HDMI Standby Through Mode

When the AV receiver is in HDMI Standby Through mode, the input source (Blu-ray™ Disc player, game console, etc.) for viewing on the monitor can be changed via the remote control. There's no need to turn on the AV receiver in order to switch sources.

HDMI CEC for Easy Operation

Another benefit of HDMI is the availability of CEC functionality. When the unit is connected to a CEC compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV, and you can use the TV remote to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components. For example, you can use the receiver's remote unit to control player functions like Skip and Stop.

*All connected devices must be HDMI CEC compatible. Some CEC compatible TVs/players may not work.

HD Audio with CINEMA DSP 3D and Virtual Presence Speaker

CINEMA DSP 3D provides a wide, high and dense sound field. HD Audio format decoding lets you enjoy HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without actual use of presence speakers.

Subwoofer Trim for Improved Sound Imaging

The Subwoofer Trim control enhances the low frequencies by avoiding overlap with the front speaker output. This will result in a cleaner, more focused sound stage while providing a seamless frequency response. When subwoofer frequency overlap occurs in conventional systems, the overall sound is "pushed" toward the subwoofer. Subwoofer Trim takes care of this by separating the low subwoofer frequencies cleanly, thus stabilizing the front stage while providing a well-balanced enhanced bass sound.

Dialogue Lift and Dialogue Level Adjustment for natural dialogue and vocals

Dialogue Lift raises the sound of dialogue from the center speaker to a position in the center of the screen. Newly developed virtual dialogue lift achieves dialogue lift function even without the need for presence speakers. Dialogue Level Adjustment lets you control the volume of the vocal sound, so you hear movie dialogue and music vocals at the ideal level for clear, comfortable listening.

Compressed Music Enhancer

When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should.

Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)

Adaptive DRC automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume level. This ensures that you hear clear dialog and vocals, and all sound effects at comfortable levels. There is no need to adjust the volume level as you listen; everything from whispers to big explosions will be heard clearly and comfortably at the same volume setting. It also tones down loud TV commercials, and is ideal for low-volume, late-night listening, when you do not want to disturb others.

Versatile Zone Control

  • HDMI Zone B for audio/video streaming to another room (same content as main room)
  • Zone 2 on/off and control on front panel
  • Zone sleep and system sleep
  • Party mode
  • Remote input/output
  • Programmable +12V trigger output

ECO mode lowers power consumption by 20%*

Yamaha's new ECO mode reduces power consumption by about 20%. It can be set from the top of the GUI menu.

* Compared to power consumption when ECO mode is off (Yamaha measurement).

Selectable Auto Power Down

Auto Power Down lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours.

Low Standby Power Consumption

Yamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.1W in IR Standby mode (3W in HDMI Standby Through mode, 2W in Network Standby mode).

Thanks to Virtual Presence Speaker function, you can also enjoy CINEMA DSP 3D surround even without Front Presence Speakers.
  • newegg SCENE – A NEW LEVEL OF OPERATING EASE Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Viewing, Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button automatically launches a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, XM Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browsing and selecting the settings is quickly accomplished by changing Input via the front panel and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace the original default settings. The SCENE names can be changed also.
  • newegg YPAO R.S.C. with Multipoint Measurement Yamaha’s unique YPAO analyzes room acoustics and the speaker system, then precisely calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of eight listening positions.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat when it worked...

Pros: Sounds great when paired with my Polk speakers.
Lots of HDMI inputs.

Cons: I first purchased this unit on 4/20/2013. So I've owned it for just over a year and today it died on me. It completely refuses to power on or do anything except be a giant paper weight.

Very disappointed considering how expensive these receivers are.

Other Thoughts: I'm getting in touch with Yamaha since these receivers have a 2 year warranty. We'll see if I get anywhere with them.

5 out of 5 eggsTotally Satisfied

Pros: The sound from this receiver is nothing short of incredible. Even my speakers from the late 1990s sound great, though I'll be shopping for newer speakers shortly. The receiver is very easy to configure, though the options are limited when not using the HDMI output.
The receiver also has an app available on the major platforms, and this is nice when the kids lose the remote control.
Configuring the Wifi adapter is painless if you have a laptop handy. Just follow the directions and disable the laptop's wireless adapter.

Cons: I'd like to see every configurable option available through the phone app. Sometimes I just want to tweak a few settings without having to turn on the television.

2 out of 5 eggsNice receiver but poor Yamaha Support, limited sound programs

Pros: Good connectivity
Quality picture and sound
Easy setup
Two zone operation

Cons: Sound programs are not very diverse, you only end up using a select few.
No support for Spotify,Rdio or other popular music services. Only Pandora Rhapsody and Sirius and their own radio. They recently updated software for next series of receivers to include spotify but excluded this receiver, poor after sale support from Yamaha. I inquired with Yamaha and they said no even though this is one month old and supports wifi and Ethernet for easy software upgrades. Won't buy Yamaha again, going with Onkyo who does better job with better sound programs with THX.

3 out of 5 eggsLow-end???

Pros: Plenty, if only the stupid things were a distraction. This is a follow-up to my original review.

Cons: Firmware and software a bit hinky. And that whole Zone 2 fiasco.

Other Thoughts: Last night I couldn't select AirPlay from the input selection knob, but I could select it using the iPhone. And when I tried the A/V controller app on my wife's Samsung S4 it took many tries just to connect. The two devices may have been battling for control. The receiver only permits one to control it.

But oh, the Zone 2 thing... I contacted Yamaha to ask if a firmware update could allow analog sources on Zone 2. Here is what they said:

"No updates would enable the routing of digital sources to Zone 2. The only receivers that do that are the RX-A2030 and RX-A3030 at this time. We are always pushing for that in the lower models."

Maybe I'm naive but I'm having trouble thinking of an $899 receiver as a "lower model"!!!

And at the risk of being pedantic, I can get AirPlay on Zone 2 and that's certainly not an analog source. I'm not impressed by stunts to cripple an obviously easy feature just to up-sell people to models twice as costly.

5 out of 5 eggsYamaha receiver

Pros: What a great deal on this Yamaha RX-V773WABL 7.2 channel receiver. Replaced my HDMI troubled Onkyo NX808 and right out of the box sounded better and the picture was better also to my Mitsubishi 3D 7800 Projector. Thanks Newegg and Yamaha---this deal was so good, ny brother (he a tech and audio/video INSTALLER bought one, too!!!

Cons: none yet---quality build and looks. Does have an external WIFI--but this $80 item comes FREE with this product.

3 out of 5 eggsNice, but a fatal and stupid flaw

Pros: Generally high-performing, lots of inputs including analog options, two HDMI outputs (more about that in a moment), two-zone support, WiFi.

Cons: No Bluetooth, no phono input and NO WAY TO PUT AUDIO FROM VIDEO SOURCES INTO ZONE 2 !!!

Other Thoughts: OK, so the RX-V773 is a great value in general, especially when being blown out at half the retail price. But why is it that Yamaha thinks North America doesn't need a phonograph input? Good thing I had a pre-amp handy.

I gripe about the Bluetooth only because after I had it all wired up, the wife asks me if it can stream audio to her Jambox. Otherwise I don't find this to be a terrible shortcoming - your mileage may vary.

But it is the Zone 2 limitations which are among one of the most IDIOTIC things I've ever witnessed. As a hardware and software engineer it truly makes my head spin in dismay...

Zone 2 will ONLY play audio from certain (essentially audio-only) sources. If you want Zone 2 to play sound from your BD player or any A/V or HDMI source, you're outta luck. I guess someone thought "well if Zone 2 doesn't have separate video support..."

Not being one to give up easy, I thought "hey I can loop the Audio Out or AV Out spigots to one of the available Audio In inputs" and get Zone 2 to play out by selecting Audio 1 or Audio 2. But no, even the Audio and AV Out spigots only carry audio from likewise analog sources.

Then I thought maybe I could use the Front Pre-Out but that doesn't seem to be available if you're set to 7-channel + extra zone.

At this point I'm ready to resort to an HDMI-analog converter and use the second HDMI output to get the analog signal into Audio-1 or Audio-2. But that means using a splitter-converter or losing an HDMI out, plus now Main and Zone 2 are no longer entirely independent.

Some propeller-beanie dude at Yamaha needs a good smack upside da' head for this. If any other owners have a clever solution I haven't thought of, I'm all ears. Really. They're very big. ;-)

5 out of 5 eggsReally great

Pros: Price
Features
Networking

Cons: Not really anything... There could be UI tweaks in the receiver and control app for the phone.

Other Thoughts: For the price, buying this receiver is a no-brainer. I bought this from Newegg several months ago when it was on sale like this.

I love being able to stream music from Rhapsody and Pandora right on the unit. And the remote control app on my phone lets me control everything, including Rhapsody and Pandora.

Its support for 2 zones is outstanding. I'm able to stream Rhapsody in zone 2 while people are watching TV in zone 1. It works flawlessly.

Once I got it set up, the networking is working almost flawlessly. I am always able to start the unit remotely and then control all the features. Every once in a while, streaming music will stop, but it is rare enough to not bother me too much.

The sound is clear and rich. I have Definitive Tech and B&W speakers and they sound great with this receiver, better than they did compared to the Onkyo I was using before this one.

2 out of 5 eggsGood receiver but issues with ARC

Pros: 2 HDMI out, video up-scaling and iPhone / iPad remote. And ARC if it works. overall, this is a good receiver. However there are some issues. When you have a DVR connected to receiver I/P and TV connected to Receiver O/P using HDMI cable and if you switch on the TV, the receiver turns on. Good so far. You also see TV. However there is no way to get the sound. You have to "touch" the receiver (input) to get the sound. This is annoying and defeats the whole purpose of ARC. I also purchased a separate digital cable for sound but that didn't help either. Opened a ticket with Yamaha and their support was not helpful. Tried to return the receiver by filing RMA but newegg ask for 50$ shipping. This is not fair. Also I thought I got a Cyber Monday deal but the prices went down the same week. So I do not trust NewEgg sale any more. Although they do have competent pricing. But there is no big sale.

Cons: ARC does not work Yamaha support not very helpful. Zone 2 cannot play HDMI inputs. It can play only music from audio inputs.

Other Thoughts: Look for something that works 100 percent. Do your research otherwise you will be frustrated like I am. Make sure you note down all your requirements, check manual and then buy. Otherwise you will be disappointed like I am.

3 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect.

Pros: Passive HDMI Pass through to TV when receiver is in standby lets my wife watch TV without messing with the receiver. 2 Zone function. lots of Inputs

Cons: FM Stereo does not have a digital Tuner.

Other Thoughts: I love the capabilities of this unit, but I purchased this unit for use as both a receiver and fm stereo for music around the house. I was disappointed to find that it would not receive the local digital stations. I found the wifi adapter an unnecessary extra as I have wired connections available for it, I would have preferred a digital tuner for the price.
