Summary: Great speakers! Wonder why they discontinued them? They sound great with my yamaha 7.2 receiver. I also got a yamaha subwoofer and now it's too much bass. Oh well I'm pleased with the purchase.
Summary: I bought a pair of these along with the matching center and rears. They shake my house! I had bought a HTiB 3-4 years ago, and the original speakers slowly died one by one. Everytime my wife would have a party, she would crank it up and kill another one. Now, setting the system more than 25% volume is too much. Not only do they put out tons of sound, but it's crisp and clear. Money well spent.
Excerpt: An amazing set of speakers for music or movies even to upgrade the look of your livingroom with the stunning piano black finish!They are solid and with detailed sound that will satisfy any taste!
Summary: Speakers sound great on my Yamaha Rxv-663 home theater system....They replaced 32 year old Yamaha NS-6 Acoustic suspension speakers which I love .....the 777s are bass reflex and have different sound ..not as much boom , but more clarity it depends on what you like to listen too and at what volume .....both designs have their good points..
Awesome performance for the cost, but recommend matching with a subwoofer

Summary: I've had these speakers for about 2 weeks now, and I have to say they are AWESOME, and an incredibly good value for the money. I think these sound as good/clean/clear as other speakers I've listened to, costing up to 10 times as much. I listen to everything from rock to blues to jazz to classical, on vinyl, cd, and mp3, and it all sounds great! I can't hear any distortion at all, even at extreme volumes.
Summary: I've always like Yamaha musical instruments and home audio gear. I bought a new Mcintosh amp and thought I would give these to my son and upgrade to a "better" set of speakers. I auditioned the Sonus Faber Olympica IIs at $10k a pair, the B&W 802 which are $18K a pair among other $10k plus speakers. Even though I could afford these more expensive speakers, nothing sounded that much better than these NS-777s which I use in conjunction with a pair of 10" subwoofers.
Summary: I was looking to upgrade from Harman Kardon HKTS 30BQ 5.1 Home Theater, and based on the positive rating on Amazon decided to go with a pair of NS-777 as front speakers, NS-C310 for the center speaker, SW-315 for the sub and NS-333 for the surround. I was so anxious to hear how these things sound so much that I couldn't wait to hook everything up before testing.
Summary: I had Polk Monitor 50 speakers as my front. For music they are decent, but for dialogues they sound extremely sibilant and causes listening fatigue. I was happy with my Yamaha subwoofer so I decided to get Yamaha front and center speakers. These speakers are heavy. I could barely carry them upstairs. Sound quality is coarse and unbalanced out of box. After 20 minutes of breaking in, the sound got a bit better.
Summary: I have to say the customer service at Yamaha was above and beyond what I expected to receive when I called them with a small problem. Treated with respect and everything was taken care of in a very timely manner. It used to be BOSE and Pinnacle sounds but I have to say Yamaha has made some big breakthroughs with this set of speakers.
