I almost bought the 820 for $500 also. The 773 is built on the exact same chassis.
The 820 does have 2 more hdmi inputs and more inputs on the front.
The 773 has the same power supply and weight. Didn't need this much
receiver for my garage 2.1 airplay, but the wifi will simplify install. The 775
has a different chassis, but the same connections. Ebay was $650+ and
everybody else is still $800 today so I ordered the 773 today for $480 shipped.
