I have a video room set up for bluray/dvd movies and concerts only(no music or internet stuff).I have set up a 7.0 system(no subwoofer) in the room with speakers in proper places but a bit close to each other.Time to upgrade from my old Panasonic XR 55 to something with HDMI inputs.Looking at the Yamaha 773 but wondered if this is too powerful for a small room and if the YPAO calibration will work with the seven speakers being so close to each other? Thanks

No its not too powerful. You have a volume control.

True but could I get a good YPAO calibration in so small of a room off 7 speakers?

As good as any other eq program. The 773 would be just fine for that room. And a bargain to boot.
