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
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
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
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.
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
