That Bose amp will not work with any receiver, it is a propriatary amp designed to hook into the bose systems.
I have used speaker switches on the zone 2 of Denon 3312's but they have alot more true power than the Yamaha 773 will ever dream of having.
Like JD says, your best bet is to get a receiver that has a zone 2 preout and use a 2 channel amp or older receiver to run just the switch. Even the 3312 wont run 5.1 at reference levels and still power 4 (or 6) pairs of additional speakers on a switch.
