About Yamaha

The Yamaha RX-V773WA 7.2-Channel A/V Receiver provides a very cost-effective way to process sound and video for any home theater system. Just hook up your choice of display, video source and speakers and this receiver will tie them all together. It's capable of producing seven 95-watt channels of powerful surround sound.

With support for pass-through of ultra high resolution 4K video, the RX-V773WA can send the signal data from source to display without any signal loss. This is the standard in digital theaters and while it's not widely available yet for the consumer market, you'll be good to go when it is. Of course, this receiver offers six HDMI inputs -- which should be plenty for most modest home theaters. That means you can connect a DVD player, gaming console and still have four left over. It also has two HDMI outputs so you can connect up to two additional monitors. These connections carry 3D source material and also support Audio Return Channel to reduce the amount of cables you need to run.

If you have an iPod, iPhone or iPad, you'll be able to connect it directly to the USB port on the front panel of the receiver to enjoy stored or streamed media played back through your home theater. Since it's a digital connection, this allows for a clean, clear signal. You can even use the receiver's remote to control music playback on your Apple device. You can also connect a USB flash drive or portable audio player to widen your options.

But to unleash the full potential of this receiver, simply connect it to a broadband network (using the included Wi-Fi adapter) and it becomes an even more important hub for your home theater. First, you can access vTuner Internet Radio for a huge selection of music. You can also download an app to your iPhone/iPod/iPad or Android phone to use your device as a remote control for the system. You can also stream music from your iTunes wirelessly, since the receiver supports AirPlay. Another step-up feature of this model is that you can send stereo audio to a second room of the house.

The RX-V773WA employs Yamaha's Parametric Room Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO) Reflected Sound Control, which uses a small microphone and sophisticated equalization to automatically set the best sound for your room, wherever your speakers are placed. The receiver supports decoding for the latest formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. With 192 kHz/24-bit Burr Brown DACs for all channels, superb sound is ensured for all your movies, music and games. Plus, queuing up your entertainment is easy thanks to the multi-language color on-screen display. And last but not least, the RX-V773WA isn't just affordable now, it's affordable in the long run. That's because it has an Eco mode so it uses less power to operate and has an auto power down mode that also helps to save power. This is good for the environment while saving you money.

Yamaha Features

  • The RX-V773WA supports pass-through for 4K, which translates to roughly four times the resolution of a 1080p display. While not yet widely available, 4K displays and sources are said to become popular in the future. This brings a new level of image clarity
  • This receiver can transmit 3D signal data to provide wraparound imaging from source to display. ARC enables data to be sent and received using a single HDMI cable. This eliminates the need for an additional optical cable, allowing for a less-cluttered home theater space
  • 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
  • Once you connect this A/V receiver to your home network, you can enjoy additional conveniences and enhanced functions. For starters, you can connect it to a PC to enjoy Internet Radio. Download the AV Controller app from the iTunes App Store or Android Marketplace
  • This receiver comes with the Yamaha YWA-10 Wi-Fi network adapter for a quick and easy connection with a wireless LAN. Features of the adapter include: IEEE 802.11b/g/n compatibility, Auto setup by WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), Manual setup by PC, 2 LAN ports to support up to 2 network products etc
  • This app lets you control power on/off and volume, select the input you want and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android phone
  • Your new RX-V773WA supports AirPlay, which allows it to stream music wirelessly from an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, or from your iTunes on your Mac or PC. This effectively incorporates your mobile devices or computer into your home theater system
  • The front panel USB port allows for convenient connection of an iPod, iPhone or iPad, which will charge as it plays. This means the digital signal will be passed from your Apple device to the receiver, so there won't be any signal loss or interference
  • YPAO-R.S.C. analyzes the room acoustics and adjusts various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes. Reflected Sound Control corrects early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization
  • The Graphical User Interface of this receiver has a high resolution display with clear, easy to use menus. The GUI provides a choice of seven languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish and Chinese; and can be displayed over both 2D and 3D pictures
  • This automatically assigned 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
  • Press one of the SCENE buttons and this will automatically power up the receiver, select an input source and DSP mode. Of course, you can reset the buttons for the sources of your choice by selecting a source and DSP mode, then pressing a SCENE button for more than three seconds
  • The HDMI input on the front panel of the receiver makes it easy to connect a digital camera or camcorder in order to view photos and videos on your display device
  • When the receiver is in HDMI Standby Through mode, you can change the input source using the remote control; you won't even need to turn the receiver on to switch sources
  • 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. HDMI CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components, like using the receiver's remote unit to skip or stop playback
  • Yamaha's exclusive CINEMA DSP 3D technology allows for an immersive sound field. HD audio format decoding (including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio) lets you enjoy HD audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker delivers 3-dimensional sound without adding more physical speakers to your setup
  • 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, the overall sound is "pushed" toward the subwoofer
  • Dialog Lift raises the sound of dialog from the center speaker to a position in the center of the screen. Newly developed virtual dialogue lift achieves dialog lift function even without the need for presence speakers
  • Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore signals that have been lost during compression of MP3 files
  • This feature 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 are played at comfortable listening levels
  • Zone 2 on/off and control on front panel, Zone sleep and system sleep, Remote input/output, Programmable +12V trigger output
  • In Eco mode, power consumption is reduced by about 20 percent. You can easily set it using the top of the GUI menu. Additionally, auto power down lets you save energy by selecting to turn the power off after two, four, eight or twelve hours
  • In IR Standby mode, the receiver draws just a tenth of a watt (3 watts in HDMI Standby Through mode, 2 watts in Network Standby mode); it's just another way this receiver is eco-friendly
