New receiver research beginning!

sony-logo.jpg

 

1. Sony STR-ZA3000ES 7.2 Receiver         $1,699.99

pSNYNA-STRZA3000ES_alternate3_v786.png

 

While this is a clean looking receiver and has HDCP 2.2 and dual HDMI outputs for dual zone video it doesn't have Dolby Atmos or DTS-X!  It is understandable why at this point it doesn't include DTS:X but why not Dolby Atmos?  I have owned a number of Sony peices over the years but have never liked or cared for there home theater receivers.  The power output could have been better and that for me goes back to feeling that Sony almost always has weak amplifier sections.  This could be a short term problem only if amplification is added later on and another possible drawback is Sony's DSP modes, something I have never cared for in the past.  So has Sony improved there DSP modes on this new ES receiver?  I love the minimalist clean lines on the face plate and the use of a magnetic face plate.  While it comes off and is out of the way your in trouble if you loose it.  

 

While it is at a nice price point I have to wonder why?  The receiver looks nice and I like the layout of the rear panel and the conductivity included at the price in regards to HDMI and Ethernet allowing you to hook other devices into the receiver without having to purchase an Ethernet switch.  The receiver includes 4K switching and at least has Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio.  In the basic mode I am sure the Sony STR-ZA3000ES does a good job decoding Dolby and DTS soundtracks.  The Sony STR-ZA3000ES looks to be the second in line below the STR-DA5800ES2 which doesn't share the clean minimalist looks of it's lower cost brother.  The Sony STR-ZA3000ES aslo is thin on analog inputs and doesn't include a phono input and while there may be a number of people who do not have a turntable it is still something I use.  One of the things I would like to have is a pair of XLR analog outputs for the L & R channels so I can use a commercial grade 31 band eq to make the most out of my Altec Lancing A-7 speakers.  But this model doesn't have that ether and not being a flagship receiver I can overlook that.

  • 7.2 Ch. A/V Receiver (100W @ 6 ohms, 20-20 kHz, THD 0.09%)
  • Optimized chassis and internal circuitry for incredible audio performance
  • Flexible HD connectivity with 8 assignable inputs (6 HDMI, 2 component)1
  • 8-port Giga Ethernet Hub with PoE (x2) support2 for flexible connectivity
  • Convenient front USB for system updating and setup3
  • Web browser configurable set-up (programming)
  • Power Consumption : 290 W

Audio Features

  • Audio Features Decoding Format
    • Dolby Digital EX/ Dolby Digital : Yes / Yes
    • 192kHz/24bit : LPCM, Yes
    • Dolby TruHD/Dolby Digital + : Yes / Yes
    • 96kHz/24bit : LPCM, Yes
    • DTS HD MA/ DTS HD HR : Yes / Yes
    • Dolby Prologic/II /IIx /IIz : Yes / Yes / Yes / No
    • DTS 96/24/ DTS Neo:6 : Yes / No
    • DTS / DTS-ES (Matrix6.1 / Discrete6.1) : Yes / Yes

 

  • Outcome: While there are some nice things about the Sony STR-ZA3000ES for me there are just to many negatives or things that Sony did not include on this next to flagship model receiver, especially considering that it is an ES model.  Especially if you compare the Sony STR-ZA3000ES to the Onkyo TX-NR1030 that sales for the same price and has Dolby Atmos, Phono input, stereo xlr out and more power than the Sony.  So basically the Sony STR-ZA3000ES does not make the cut and doesn't get added to my short list of receivers to consider!
  • Next: Sony STR-ZA3000ES
  • pSNYNA-STRDA5800ES2_alternate1_v786.png
