Middle of road model

MCESQ, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Pretty good middle of the road Yamaha model. Does the trick and handles multiple components at decent price point. My prior Yamaha lasted about 10 years.

Low-end???

BRADLEY B., Newegg
31 January 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • 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.

Nice, but a fatal and stupid flaw

BRADLEY B., Newegg
22 January 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • 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 !!!

Almost Perfect.

John S., Newegg
3 January 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • 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.

Airplay and streaming software is poor

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: The airplay and streaming software frequently loses its mind. It will stop playing in the middle of a song. The only way to get it playing again is to restart the song. Airplay often can't connect from certain devices. There's no random play button when playing streaming music.

A good receiver but......

Avedis, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: I just purchased this receiver a few days ago and for the most part, it works well. There is a firmware upgrade available online (version 1.64) at Yamaha that adds Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius/XM as well as improves the multi-point YPAO.

Zu schnell entwickelt!

EMPEQ, Amazon
15 May 2014
  • Summary: Viele Kritikpunkte sind bereits genannt worden, deshalb möchte ich nichts davon unnötig wiederholen. Besonders der Punkt Webinterface ist bei diesem Yamaha eher verachtenswert, so schludrig wurde das hier in Praktikantenmanier umgesetzt.

Alles etwas eingeschränkt
