7.2 channels for deeply immersive surround sound
Lose yourself in every soundtrack thanks to 7.2 channels of room-filling surround sound, with 105 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 favourite 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.
Atmos treats sounds as separate objects, releasing them from typical channels to move freely around and even above you, for deeply immersive surround sound.
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.
Seamless auto calibration
DCAC EX uses a stereo mic to measure speaker positioning down to the nearest centimetre, 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.
In-ceiling speaker mode
Easily configured during setup, In-ceiling mode relocates front speaker audio so dialogue 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 cinema 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

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 pre-set sound modes.
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.
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.
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.
