Receiver is great!

Wood Machiner, Yamaha
20 May 2014
  • Summary: I use this in our living room to control the whole entertainment system. The remote can be difficult to use. We ended up buying a Logitech harmony remote to control the system. Originally had the receiver setup using the WIFI adapter and had difficulty keeping it connected to Pandora and Airplay. Once I removed the adapter and hardwired the receiver to my home network, it worked great. Overall it is a very nice receiver seems to work very well.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Poor Reception / Weak Antenna

Awesome unit for casual or audiophiles!

Audiophile on a beer budget, Yamaha
9 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this unit as an upgrade to an earlier Yamaha unit that only had 5.1 and no HDMI. I went through three different Yamaha units before settling on the 775. I love the 7.2 capabilities for home theater. More importantly, Yamaha always provides the pre-amp outputs necessary for audiophiles to bypass the system for audiophile equipment. The 24 bit Burr Brown DAC has been a staple in audiophile equipment for years.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality, Lots Of Output Ooptions, Pre-amp Outs For High End
  • Cons: Wish They Used Ess 32 Bit

Nice Receiver

Bob, Yamaha

  • Summary: I use this product in a home theater/stereo music application. It replaced a high end Sony unit I had for many years. So far it has performed up to my expectations. If you don't have an HDMI connected TV, set-up is complicated, time consuming and many of features aren't available for use. However; it provides a good migration platform. I am using my older VCR, DVD and TV, with the ability to connect newer components as needed.
  • Pros: Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up

  • Summary: This receiver is ready for now and tomorrow. Very easy to use, and loads of features I am still learning how to utilize. Set up was easy, but a paper manual would have been really nice to have.

RX-V775WA AV Receiver -

MotoGPman, Yamaha
25 April 2014
  • Summary: This is my first Yamaha AV receiver and coming from an Onkyo was a little worried it would not be as good. Boy was I wrong. The set up was super easy, the sound quality is amazing and over power is out of this world. I listen to a lot of Flac files and love to listen to them loud, the clarity of this unit is superb. I have not had a chance to play with the EQ yet but will get around to that soon. Overall, I love this unit.
  • Pros: Decodes Flac, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Base Response, Great Sound Quality, Great Surround
  • Cons: Getting Used To Menus, No Hdmi Out 4 Comp Input

Great receiver

Rene Vallieres, Amazon
13 April 2014
  • Summary: I read many reviews before I dropped the hammer and bought one and so glad I did. Many reviews stated that it was complicated to set up but I did not have that problem. This unit replaced an Onkyo so the menu's were a little to get used to but once I got over that set up was easy. As far as the WIFI goes, I did not have a problem because I connected via ether net cable. The sound it incredible, the video is crystal clear and it has a ton of HDMI inputs.

Not as Good as I expected

Larry, Amazon
3 April 2014
  • Summary: I replaced my 7 yr old onkyo and have been very disappointed with this model ofYamaha RX-V775WA after all of the high ratings that it got. I am considering going back to my old Onkyo that had much better sound as well as better control over my entire sound system, The Onkyo that I replaced was a Model TX-NR808
