7.2 channels for deeply immersive surround sound

Lose yourself in every soundtrack thanks to 7.2 channels of room-filling surround sound, with 100 W of power per channel. You can connect up to two active subwoofers for even bass distribution around the room.

7.1.2-channel surround immersion with Phantom Surround Back

Defy space restrictions and experience full 7 channel surround sound, including 2 overhead speakers, with the Phantom Surround Back speaker setting. It simulates the audio experience of physical surround back speakers.

Dolby Atmos

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 give you total immersion in 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.

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.

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.
