Surprised by the power and ease of set up
 
I have been a discerning fan of hi fi *stereo* equipment since the late 80s. But--before this Sony ES receiver--my only experience with surround sound was a Logitech system I added to a computer 10 years ago. I don't know why I didn't make the switch to surround sound for movies sooner! I bought the STR-ZA3000ES because I recently picked up a 70" Sony 4k Bravia TV for our den at a price that was too good to pass up. Unfortunately, my Cambridge Audio stereo system (RCA only) was...

Nice Piece
 
Bought this yesterday to replace my Bryston Integrated, Played hi rez tracks through Meridian Director DAC. After initial set up, sounds great so far. Set up was much easier than my old 2400es. Reserving final judgement for when its broken in and i can crank it up. Keep in mind i'm judging this against a 3000$ integrated that i played music through for the most part, played a movie last night, was great, interfaces well with my Sony TV. Wanted to have one piece that does it all. This...

Simple Power
 
This receiver has the basic features and power needed for high quality audio and video enjoyment in your home. It does not have Internet connectivity, but most of us have one or more smart devices connected to our receivers (Apple TV, smart TV, and/or smart Blu-Ray player), so we don't need this feature in our receiver as well. This receiver will connect to your home network by Ethernet (after a firmware update by USB), and allow you to control/change its settings and operate it remotely via...

Lost center channel
 
Just now today (two weeks after install & set up) center channel output completely stopped working. Tried another in place to see if speaker is bad (nope- receiver simply stopped output to center channel)

DTS X and Atmos speaker layouts are different!
 
This receiver is almost perfect for what it puts out. I actually prefer watching movies that are in Dolby Atmos rather than the theater now. But the DTS X speaker setup has to be a certain way or it will not work. I had no idea about this and installed my 7.2.2 system with two Monitor Audio CP-CT380IDC in the middle ceiling (sounds absolutely amazing in Atmos). But having known that DTS X only works with the overhead speakers having to be on the front or rear, not the middle, I would've went...

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!
 
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.

Easy Upgrade
 
I bought this receiver to replace an old V444ES. Optical had treated me well, but with everything else I own running HDMIs, it was time to upgrade. This receiver was very easy to setup with the included mic. The sound is very clear. My wife misses all of the various sound fields that the old receiver possessed. That is probably the only down side that I can think of for this review. It has a lot more power than the old receiver, and can go a lot louder because of that fact. The manuals th...
