Choose from the STR-ZA810ES, STRZA1100ES, STR-ZA2100ES, and STRZA3100ES and you’ll get a 7.2 channel 4K AV receiver with Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X object-based surround sound. Plus it’s got full 4K HDR compatibility and easy IP integration with many leading control systems, so you have the total package of installation-friendly features and top notch audio/video performance.

Sony’s new ES Receivers are purpose-built for integrators and their customers. The new sleek and simplified design means easier integration into racks, plus enhanced software features offer better compatibility—all while producing the high quality audio and video you’ve come to expect from Sony.

Also part of the lineup is the STRZA5000ES; the perfect core piece for your automated home entertainment universe. It’s made to be flexible with multi-zone, high-definition connectivity, easy IP integration, and powerful browser-based configurability.


How much power do you want? You choose what’s right for you, your room and your set up. Sony’s ES lineup of receivers has what you need.

With the STR-ZA810ES, STRZA1100ES, and STR-ZA2100ES you’ll get 7.2 channel sound and premium audio quality. With 100W per channel, these Sony ES Receivers deliver cinema-like surround sound and crystal clear music reproduction (e.g., the STR-ZA210ES is 105W @ 8 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 0.9%).

Need a more specialized configuration? For special installations, the amplifier can be configured to support two pairs of speakers either independently (A or B) or simultaneously (A and B), in addition to Bi-Amp fashion.

When it comes to the STRZA3100ES, you‘re cranking things up a notch to 110W per channel. The STR-ZA3100ES also delivers theatre-like surround sound and clear music (110W @ 8 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 0.9%). The STR-ZA3100ES can also be configured to support two pairs of speakers either independently or simultaneously, plus Bi-Amp.

Moving up the line to Sony’s STRZA5000ES, expect all the features and options of the receivers above but with stunning nine channel, object based surround and 130W per channel.


Dolby Atmos is known for delivering the best sound experience in the business, and Sony’s ES receivers have been developed to use this technology to its maximum potential.

All Sony ES receivers, the STR-ZA810ES, STRZA1100ES, STR-ZA2100ES, STRZA3100ES and the STRZA5000ES support Dolby Atmos®, and DTS:X® object based surround.

With Dolby Atmos, you’ll feel like you’re surrounded by all the action as the sounds of crowds, music, and objects like choppers, tanks and planes move all around you in three-dimensional space.

Haven’t yet upgraded to seven channel surround? No problem. Sony’s technology can create phantom rear surround channels that can transform your five channel system into what sounds just like a seven channel system.


You want to be able to expand your home theatre with the best and newest technology. That’s why Sony’s ES line of home theatre receivers have 4K HDR compatibility and different options for connecting devices and peripherals.

Each of these receivers features full, native 4K video content pass-through to 4K capable televisions and projectors, and they’ll even up-scale HD movies and TV shows to 4K quality.

The STR-ZA810ES starts things off with flexible connectivity with 6 assignable HDMI® inputs and 2 outputs supporting HDR and HDCP 2.2.3.

With the STRZA1100ES, you’ve got a receiver that offers 5 HDMI inputs for system flexibility and 2 outputs supporting HDR and HDCP 2.2.1.

The STRZA3100ES is a 4K HDR receiver, with 6 assignable HDMI inputs for system flexibility (5 supporting HDR and HDCP 2.2) plus two outputs.

At the top of the line is the STRZA5000ES, where every detail — from the removable aluminum faceplate, to the electronic component selection, special 2nd generation ES solder, structural/chassis elements, and even the screw placement — has been scrutinized and tuned.

Designed for reliably consistent sound performance, the STR-ZA5000ES offers improved structural stability for better sound via an analogue signal path. This circuit is located on a glass epoxy board, in order to achieve higher speed and power. The STR-ZA5000ES also features high-quality speaker terminals with gold plating.
