Sony STR-AZ1000ES 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver

Create an immersive home theater experience, enjoy smooth 4K/120 gameplay, and deliver whole-home audio when you create a home entertainment system with the Sony STR-AZ1000ES 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver. Six HDMI inputs (two for 8K or 4K/120) combine with 7.2 channels of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-based audio, for movies that look amazing and surround you with sound from all directions. Support for the latest in HDR technology enhances this experience with deeper blacks and rich contrast. Dual HDMI outputs and Zone 2/Zone 3 functionality allows two different rooms to watch their own UHD content, with a third zone enjoying audio playback. Playback from local or online sources, thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet connectivity.

8K HDR Cinema with HDMI 2.1
The six HDMI inputs and dual outputs support the HDMI 2.1 specification, which enables higher quality content thanks to low-latency technologies, such as ALLM (Auto Low-Latency Mode) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate). Video content at up to 8K resolution is supported, in addition to 4K at 120 Hz for smoother next-gen gameplay for two of the inputs. To improve realism, the STR-AZ1000ES supports many HDR standards, such as HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision, and IMAX Enhanced.
360 Audio & Theater-Like Surround
Supporting 7.2 channels of audio at 100W per channel, the STR-AZ1000ES allows you to fill your space with enough speakers and subwoofers to replicate a theater environment. Supporting Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, object-based and height effects make compatible movie soundtracks come alive. This kind of fidelity is applied to music as well, with Hi-Res, Hi-Res Wireless, and 360 Reality Audio support, making you feel as if the artist is with you in the room.

These audio technologies are joined by room calibration technologies that work to create a sound reproduction that's custom to your environment. 360 Spatial Sound Mapping reproduces a physical sound field to emulate a movie theater or concert hall. Digital Cinema Auto Calibration IX precisely corrects the distance, angle, sound pressure, and frequency response of each of your speakers to create the ideal sound field.

Center Channel Audio
Two different center channel modes can be used to alter how this primary speaker is used when watching TV and movies. Acoustic Center Sync matches the audio to your compatible BRAVIA TV. Center Speaker Lift raises the center speaker sound to match what's on TV.
Wireless Audio
Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet connectivity, you can stream music, podcasts, and internet radio from a local media library or hundreds of online services. The STR-AZ1000ES supports Spotify Connect, Chromecast built-in, and Apple AirPlay to expand your streaming options.
Works with Sonos

Roon Tested

Robust Construction
