Get to know this product.

9.2 channels for deeply immersive surround sound

Lose yourself in every soundtrack thanks to 9.2 channels of room-filling surround sound, with 130 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

Defy space restrictions and experience full 7-channel surround sound, including 2 overhead 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Connect multiple remotes

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

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.

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.

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.

Experience cinematic IMAX sound

This Sony receiver is an IMAX enhanced product, ready to deliver the highest standard of sound and clarity. Take comfort in knowing you’ll be enjoying a fully cinematic audio experience at-home with this receiver, that takes full advantage of IMAX enhanced content.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Heat sink design

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

Large capacity power transformer

This transformer improves detail for more accurate acoustic bass and vocals, giving your audio a new sense of clarity and space.

High-quality speaker terminal

Specially designed for STR-ZA5000ES, the speaker terminal features gold plating for superior electrical performance and high-quality sound.

The new center of your theater system, the STR-ZA5000ES offers up to 11.1-channel immersive sound (9.2ch discrete onboard amplifiers) from both Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X 4, and all the features that enthusiasts and custom-installers could want. Enjoy full-quality 4K/60p video pass-through, with HDR and HDCP 2.2 support, and a wealth of connection options for multi-room and network distribution. With premium ES build quality, and a focus on sound purity, it lives up to its flagship status.

Ideal for custom installs with multi-zone outputs and an 8-port network hub

Premium ES build quality for exceptional sound quality

6-in/2-out HDMI connectivity with 4K/60p (4:4:4) pass-through and HDCP 2.2 support
