Diff between Yamaha 477 and 775 - Bad GUI
I got the 775 from Costco for $480. To me, it was overkill for a basic 5.1 system. So when the 477 went on sale I picked it up for $250. Hey, save over $200 on features (I will never have multi-rooms and such) I don't use. But after hooking the 477 up I am really saddened by the GUI. For a more recent model, I expected the UI to be the same or better, regardless of it being a 4xx vs 7xx model. With limitations of not being able to do some of the programming/setting (such as entering radio presets) in UI, but forced to use remote, and some other things that I found straight forward with the 775, but difficult and non-intuitive with the 477, I am rethinking my position on saving money as well as the Yamaha brand.
Curious what other's think of the two and your recommendations. FYI, I have the Kef T205 speakers and my family room is small and partially open to the kitchen.
