Pure Sony

STR-ZA3000ES 30/05/2017  (USA)

I have owned quite a few receivers over the years, types with average power and lots of features as well as mega power with minimal features. One thing is for sure, when you consider buying a Sony you may be just as satisfied with their lower lines chalked for of goodies and right up there with the Jones's. But when you take it to the limit this company is the innovator. Take for example this flag ship series ES with 4k, if you want a music juggernaut you found it, if you want a theater receiver you found it but you better know something about setting up your area for sound. This AV is a no nonsense unit, don't look for "toys" such as wifi, internet or blue tooth. I also own a flagship Sony TV that the unit has trouble communicating with but if your TV is set as a monitor what else do you need. I am a sound guy and this receiver is the "Sledge Hammer" in my theater tool shed. I am also a musician and this AV unit can put you in the front row of a symphony hall, rock venue or a useful romantic setting. A real crowd pleaser!

Great value, great functionality

I'll start off by saying 4 stars is probably my best rating i'v ever given. Nothing is perfect. That being said, this AVR is probably the best I've worked with at this price point. Unless you go with a Meridian or other high end system, this could be one of the best audio experiences you can find. Easy setup and calibration, works well with my remote control system.

Simply Amazing!

STRZA3000ES 17/12/2014 by Rick1395 (USA)

I have owned five Sony ES AV Receivers over the years, always pleased with their performance and features. But this new ZA3000ES has raised the bar even higher in every category. And at a price that I consider to be a very reasonable for the quality. The ease of setting it up was very impressive give the complexity of it's capability. I highly recommend this ES model, definitely exceeded my expectations.
