In between the Main Zone power and Pure Direct (disables most audio/video processing and on-screen menu operation circuitry for better audio-only listening) buttons is the LED status display. Although hard to see in this photo, the function access buttons that run along the bottom of the LED status display, from left to right are:

Zone 2 (power on/off), Zone Control (Allows the remote control to control sources going to Zone 2), Info, Memory, Preset, FM, AM, and Tuning.

Continuing down on the front panel, and starting on the far left side is the Input Select dial, and on the far right side is the Master Volume Control.

The rest of the front panel is populated, from left to right, by Silent Cinema Headphone Jack, SCENE buttons (preset or customized listening and viewing modes for BD/DVD, TV, Net, and Radio listening), below which (from left to right) are the YPAO microphone input (for automatic speaker setup functions), Tone Control access button, Program, and Straight (disables surround sound decoding and processing modes - essentially enables PCM-only stereo or multi-channel playback) selector buttons, and, finally a set of front panel AV inputs, that include on HDMI-MHL input, composite video input, and USB input.

Here is a photo of the AV connections on the rear panel of the RX-V775WA located from the left-to-center.

Starting on the left side are two Digital Optical and two Digital Coaxial audio inputs.

Moving right are two sets of Composite (yellow) video inputs and two sets of Component Video (red, green, blue) inputs.

Moving down there are several analog stereo inputs and outputs, including a set of Zone 2 preamp outputs, a set of 5.1/7.1 analog and dual subwoofer preamp outputs.

It is also important to point out that although there 5.1/7.1 channel analog preamp outputs are included, there are not 5.1/7.1 channel analog inputs problem and there is no provision for direct connection of a Turntable for playing Vinyl Records. You cannot use the analog audio inputs to connect a turntable due to the fact that the impedance and output voltage of the turntable cartridge is different than for other types of audio components.

If you desire to connect a turntable to the RX-V775WA, you can either employ an additional Phono Preamp or buy a one of the breed of turntables have built-in phono preamps that will work with the audio connections provided on the RX-V775WA.

Moving back up the photo there are both composite and component video monitor outputs as well as AM/FM radio antenna connections (Indoor AM and FM antennas are provided).

Here is a look at the speaker connections provided on the RX-V775WA, located on the bottom center/right side of the rear panel.

Here are some of the speaker setups that can be used:

1. If you want to use a full traditional 7.1/7.2 Channel setup, you can use the Front, Center, Surround, and Surround Back connections.

2. If you want to have the RX-V775WA in a Bi-Amp setup for your front left and right speakers, you ​reassign the surround back speaker connections for Bi-Amp operation.

3. If you want to have the RX-V775WA power vertical height channels (Presence), you can use the Front, Center, and Surround connections to power 5 channels and reassign the EXTRA SP connections to connect to the two intended vertical height channel speakers.

4. If want to forgo the vertical height/Presence option, you have the option EXTRA SP connections for Zone 2 operation. However, if you use this option, you cannot run 7.1 channels in your main zone and two channels in Zone 2 at the same time. Your main zone system will default to 5.1 channel operation when Zone 2 is activated.

It is also important to note that for each physical speaker setup option, you will also need to use the Amp Assign menu options of the receiver to send the correct signal information to the speaker terminals, based on what speaker configuration option you are utilizing. You also have to remember that you cannot use all the available options at the same time.

Here is a look at remote control provided with the Yamaha RX-V775WA Home Theater Receiver.

As you can see, this is a long and thin remote. It fits well in our hand, but it is large, coming in at 9-inches in length.

Starting on the top are the standby/power buttons for compatible source components and the receiver.

Just below the standby/power buttons are the HDMI source select button, followed by six more analog A/V input and two audio-only input source selection options.

The next row provides buttons to access the built-in AM/FM tuner, USB, and NET (internet radio) sources.

Continuing down the remote is a row of very small buttons. The first switches remote control functions between the main and second zone, a second button activates the Party Mode (allows main and 2nd Zone to play same audio source), and the third button allows users to select the HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 output option.

Continuing down to the center section of the remote is a row of SCENE presets (BD/DVD, TV, NET, Radio - explained previously).

Continuing down are controls that access Program (surround sound decoding and processing options), Mute, and Master Volume Control.

Next are the Menu access and navigation controls, followed by the AM/FM radio access and tuning controls.

Continuing down are a group of control for accessing less used functions, such the preset movie and music listening modes, as well as the surround decoding mode, info, sleep timer, and the Enhancer (for optimizing sound quality from streaming and network sources), as well as the Pure Direct Mode (bypasses all internal audio decoding and processing as well as some video and on-screen menu functions of the 775WA).

The next section of buttons provide direct channel or track access, and, finally, the bottom section of the remote provides control for compatible TVs.

For a look at the onscreen user interface, proceed through the next series of photos.

Here is a look at the at Power Amp Assign Menu.

This allows you to assign the amplifiers of the RX-V775WA to a specific speaker configuration.

Basic is used if you are using either a standard 5 channel or 7 channel setup (with either surround back or front height/presence channels), with no Bi-amping or Powered Second Zone. When this option is selected, and you use the YPAO automatic speaker setup system, it will detect whether 5 or 7 channels are being used. If using manual speakers setup and only using 5 channels, set the surround back speaker option to NONE.

7ch + 1ZONE means that you intend to use both a 7 channel setup in your main room and an additional 2-channel zone in a second room. In this case, when the second zone is activated, the main zone automatically goes into 5 channel operation.

5chBI-AMP is used when you want to reassign the surround back channels (channels 6 and 7) to provide additional power to the two front left and right channels. In this setup, you must use speakers that provide Bi-amp speaker connections, you cannot use this function with just any set of speakers.

For a further look at speaker setup, proceed to the next photo.

Yamaha RX-V775WA Home Theater Receiver - Speaker Setting Results Info Pages

Here is a look at how the Yamaha RX-V775WA provides the user with information on the speaker setup. If using the YPAO automatic speaker setup system, everything shown in these menu examples is performed automatically. However, if you choose the manual speaker setup option, you will also have access to these menus and can set your own parameters as shown.

In both cases, built-in test tones are provided to assist in speaker setup. It is also important to note that if you are not satisfied with the YPAO calculations, you can go in and change one or more settings manually as well.

The image on the top left shows what speakers are connected. In this case, five speakers and a subwoofer have been detected.

The image on the bottom left shows the size calculation of the speakers. If a subwoofer is detected, all the other speakers are designated as SMALL. The reason for this is so the crossover point between the subwoofer and the rest of the speakers is set properly.

The image on the top right shows the calculated distance of the speakers to the primary listening position. If using the YPAO system, this calculation is done automatically. If doing this manually, you can enter your own distance measurements.

The image on the bottom right shows the channel "volume" levels. Once again, if using the YPAO system, it will calculate the levels automatically. If you are doing the speaker setup manually, you can use the built-in test tone generator and either your own ears or a sound meter to set the proper channel levels.

For a look at the HDMI setup menu, proceed to the next, and last, photo in this gallery.
