'-7.2 channels for deeply immersive surround sound
Lose yourself in every soundtrack thanks to 7.2 channels of room-filling surround sound, with 110 W of power per channel. You can connect up to two active subwoofers for even bass distribution around the room. So whether you’re watching movies, playing games, or listening to your favorite songs, you’ll enjoy a next-level entertainment experience.

-7.1.4-channel surround immersion with Phantom Surround Back
Defy space restrictions and experience full 7-channel surround sound, including 4 overhead speakers, with the Phantom Surround Back speaker setting. It simulates the audio experience of physical surround back speakers.

-Dolby Atmos®
Atmos treats sounds as separate objects, releasing them from typical channels to move freely around and even above you, for deeply immersive surround sound.

-In-ceiling speaker mode
Easily configured during setup, In-ceiling mode relocates front speaker audio so dialog sounds as if it's coming from the screen, instead of from above.

-Seamless auto-calibration
DCAC EX uses a stereo mic to measure speaker positioning down to the nearest centimeter, before automatically adjusting frequencies, phase, and delays for better sound positioning. It then tunes your speakers using a 31-band EQ, for a listening experience that's tailored to your room.

-DTS:X
DTS:X can create an unlimited number of audio objects which adapt to your speakers in real time, to get the biggest impact out of every movie soundtrack.

-Enjoy consistent 4K content
Maintain 4K quality from source to screen—the 4K pass-through feature allows data to pass through the receiver without compromising image quality, and is HDCP 2.2-compatible.

-See more detail with 4K upscale 
Video upscaling gives you higher quality and more visible detail, so you can see more detail in everything.

-6 x HDMI inputs, 2 x HDMI outputs
Bring all your home theater together. With 6 HDMI inputs you can connect an Internet TV box, Blu-ray Disc™ player and games console all at once, and still have room to expand.

-Connect multiple remotes
Discrete IR codes let you connect multiple third-party and independent remotes, for easy and versatile control.

-Web browser configurable
View, program, and edit your receiver settings from your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Just enter the receiver's IP address into your browser.

-Remote monitoring with ihiji
Make your installer more efficient with ihiji, a cloud-based service which monitors your receiver's power status, temperature, and more.

-See clearly with HDR (High Dynamic Range)
By supporting HDR signal pass-through, you can enjoy the incredible jump in image contrast and brightness it brings—and the additional shadow detail and highlights further enhance picture detail and bring colors to life. Latest HDR standard such as HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), and Dolby Vision ™ are supported.

-Music Connect
Music Connect allows Z-series AV receivers to slave to the HAP-Z1ES Hi-Res Audio player and other networked music players. So you can combine the power of an ES-grade multichannel sound system with the flexibility of today's wireless multi-zone music systems.

-Simple control with a Graphic User Interface
Easily set up your receiver and navigate settings from the home menu. Control what you watch, see which devices are connected, and choose how you want to listen with preset sound modes.

-8-Port Gigabit Ethernet switch
An 8-Port Ethernet switch lets you connect to computers, servers, or media boxes. Two of the ports support Power over Ethernet.

-Frame and beam chassis
The STR-ZA series chassis uses a frame and beam design with all four corners embossed to better support the power transformer and heat sink. This minimizes external sound pressure so audio is more focused, responsive, and powerful.

-Class-leading high-purity pre-amplifier
The new pre-amp goes way beyond other receivers in this class for optimum High-Resolution Audio delivery. A single-point ground and independent power supply promotes purer sound with less interference.

-Power amplifier
For greater stability and output power a glass-epoxy circuit board is used. Unlike cheaper resin boards, internal vibrations are reduced for less distortion, just clear high power from each of the discrete amplifiers.

-Heat sink design
Newly designed fins maximize air intake, helping the amplifier circuit withstand high sound pressure and keep cool.

Great upgrade I upgraded from a STR-DN1040 so the install was relatively easy. I did not have any hitches along the way. The instruction manual did not instruct how to set-up Bravia Sync. I went to the support site and printed. All the functionality is right on the face of the Receiver which make makes adjustments a breeze. I needed this Receiver for 4K passthrough. All is working well. I also upgraded my HDMI cables to 18 gb. I have only had this Receiver less than 24 hours so this review is lacking as to what I will know more down the road. So far I am very pleased.

Wow this is the best The audio sound quality is better than I have ever expected in my home theater. Streisand singing People is spectacular using the STR-ZA3100ES and the plasma column Speakers with the VPL-VW365ES projector. This was a re-lace net for TA9000ES component setup. This compared against my KAWAI PIANO WITH piano disk setup. My 15 year old component system and SACD’s in the theater do not compare with the newAV Receiver. It is also part of total house system of the future. The quality of the music is better than ever expected!
