I'm sure that this STR 5000ES will perform as expected for years to come. I have been buying Sony products since 1975 and have never had a problem with any of them, there built to last!

Pros: User friendly easy set up

Cons: Can't think of any

Replaced a Pioneer receiver. Drives 4 biamps speakers, two satellites and a center channel easily. Sounds outstanding. Priced for what it can do successfully while not running too hot.

Great performance at a (gulp) high price. Does what it should, beautifully. Replaced a glitchy Denon receiver. No regrets!

Pros: Excellent performance

Cons: Premium price

Incredible

I don't mind that this receiver does not have Wi-Fi connectivity. I use it for what it's built for. Huge power and huge sound. All Channels are amazingly discreet and it decodes effortlessly.

Pros: Huge power 4K upscaling is amazing Content in all channels in my surround speakers are decoded with intricate detail.

Cons: Hardwire ethernet only versus Wi-Fi connectivity but I don't care.

very well engineered product

Robert from Virginia Beach, VA on 1/4/2019

Great receiver, has everything you could ask for (except a phono input) and more. The built in network switch really did prove useful, good power for all channels with pre-outs for potential to push it even further with future upgrades. The dual zone capability opened up a lot of unplanned options for me as well. I was concerned about noise from the built in fan but its very quiet. I was also pleased with the on-screen display for volume and that it allowed for HDMI video routing to the display with audio breakaway routing from a different (non HDMI) source to the speakers. Great unit for any home theater or mancave.

Pros: Lots of power and connectivity; seems very well thought out. Great quality

Cons: No phono input on the unit and too many other analog connections that will never be used (Component maybe BUT composite video!)

Sony ES products simply have NO peer. Paired with Sony Z series tele and Sony ES 4k player is absolutely stunning. The 5000ES pushes my enormous Martin Logans with little effort. I'm baffled why anyone would look elsewhere if this is in your budget.

Pros: Power, clarity on two channel is a thing of pure heaven. A true conaseauer piece.

Cons: ZERO.
