Sony STR-ZA1100ES

Crutchfield customer from Irving, TX on 6/21/2021

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Unit is performing well, after figuring out why it went to stand bye and off, after 5 hours. Sony SACD player optical output will only send out signals that play standard CD's and not the SACD's even on a unit this advanced. Calibration works well, and will give your connections a check. Input customization is a little frustrationing as even the online manual is vague, but patience is the key.

Pros:

Cons: the right optic door flap broke after 2nd fiber change out while setting up connections, now its a delicate balance to get fiber optic cable to work.

We ordered this unit not sure if it would work with our current Sony rack system. We are thrilled! This unit worked beautifully with our system. We were very excited to be able to use our entire system, indoor and out.

Sony STR-ZA1100ES

Crutchfield customer from Anaheim, CA on 4/15/2021

Unit has great sound but is missing a couple of items that should be included with this high end unit. There is no Bluetooth capability and my old ES had a switchable AC input for items like subwoofer to turn off when unit is powered down. This unit has internet capability but with it being in my LR and my router is in another room I will not be able to hook it up w/o a long wire running through the house. ( wifi would be much better ) Also had to call tech support to get the B speakers working as there were no instruction's on what they guided me through to get them working.

Excellent AVR

Crutchfield customer from Chicago, IL on 11/4/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a great receiver if you just getting into the home theater, plenty of features, 6 HDCP 2.2 compliant HDMI inputs, 7 on-board amplifiers make it a great choice! Setup is extremely easy and detailed wiring instructions are available in the manual as well as on-screen guide, you could get it all setup in less than 30 minutes.

Pros: There are the biggest advantages: 1) Great streaming capabilities - receiver supports Apple AirPlay, Google Chromecast Audio (it could be also controlled with Google Assistant) and Spotify (premium Spotify subscription is required). AirPlay support includes synchronous playback in multiple rooms. 2) Receiver supports all existing High Definition Audio formats - DSD, DTS-MA, Dolby ATMOS, DTS:X 3) Very easy automatic speaker setup and configuration.

Cons: none for now

An excellent, well-built and highly musical receiver

Crane from Alexandria, VA on 11/21/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is an excellent receiver and should be on your short list if you are shopping for a home theater receiver under $1500. Sure, it lacks the bells and whistles of competing Yamaha, Marantz and Onkyo receivers. For instance, there is no Spotify, internet radio, bunches of sound processing effects and so forth. But what it does have is rock solid build quality and refined, nuanced power for movies and music. It is built like a tank and will provide your home theater system with all of the finesse and power of a receiver twice its cost. I have traditionally owned high-end NAD, Rotel and Marantz receivers. Was considering buying a Cambridge Audio home theater this time around. Sony was not on my radar. But my home audio installer recommended the Sony ES line, and I took the plunge and about this receiver. I have been impressed by it. So will you.

Pros: Build quality. Understated good looks. Clear, articulate power for movies and music.

Cons: Not the receiver for you if you want a lot of bells and whistles

Since all video media devices have HDMI these days, this receiver is great with 5 ports on the back. I used the ARC technology to link to my new Samsung 4K monitor and it is a joy. (My old TV only had one HDMI port, so I had to use an external HDMI switcher.) My old Sony receiver from 2005 is still working fine, but the technology has changed. It's a nice upgrade.
