Supports Dolby Atmos, and DTS:X Object-Based Surround

You'll feel like you're inside the action as the sounds of people, music, and objects move all around you in three-dimensional space. Can’t fit seven-channel surround? Phantom rear surround channels will transform your five channel system into a seven channel system.

Digital Cinema Auto Calibration EX with speaker relocation technology

D.C.A.C. EX with stereo mic is Sony’s unique auto calibration technology. This technology balances output to closely simulate sound as would be produced by optimally positioned and angled speakers. The results are nothing short of breathtaking, with the entire sound field seamlessly integrated for outstanding surround sound. 

Firmware Update via Network Connection

Perform firmware updates quickly and easily over a network connection.

Built for Sound

Every detail from the electronic component selection, to special 2nd generation ES solder, structural/chassis elements, and even screw placement has been scrutinized and tuned in the higher interest of reliably consistent sound performance. The STR-ZA810ES offers improved structural stability for better sound via the analogue signal path. This circuit is located on a glass epoxy board, in order to achieve higher speed and power. 

Three DSPs to Reduce Unwanted Electrical Noise

Dispersing the load between three DSPs allow the realization of clarity and realistic ambience by reducing noise.

Complete with dedicated 2nd zone HDMI, IR repeater, and both amplified and line-level audio connectivity, all audio (including network services, BT connected devices and USB) and video sources connected to the STR-ZA810ES can be independently controlled and output from the Main Zone to a second zone (bedroom or den).

This receiver is my best friend!!
I love the features. It sends my music all over the house, when I want it to. And I did not realize that it would do airplay until I got it. It can handle whatever I need it to do...even tv.

A pretty good AV receiver
This is a pretty good AV receiver, but it can be improved upon. A few of my observations after owning this receiver for about a month follow.
I bought the STR-ZA810ES AV receiver to replace and older STR-DN1020 AV receiver for use in a 5.1 configuration. I bought the new receiver because it is generally better and it supports 4K video and has Bluetooth 4 built in. I should point out that the old receiver is still in good working condition. The on-screen menus for setting the receiver options are improved over the older model.
Unfortunately, the new receiver has the same irritating design limitation as the older model. Specifically, the receiver option to direct the audio to both the speakers and the TV must be set each time the AV receiver is turned on. I use this option to enable the use of wireless headphones connected to the television. I wonder why some setting options for the AV receiver are memorized in non-volatile memory and other settings are not. For the Sony engineers who might see this review, I want the HDMI, Audio option to memorize the AMP+TV setting instead of defaulting to the AMP only setting. Alternatively, if the Bluetooth transmitter and audio speaker output could be turned on simultaneously, one could work around the above limitation. In addition, the remote control seems to be not up to the standards expected for an ES (Elevated Standard) product. The remote included with the older model had better functionality for setting receiver options and was still in good condition. In contrast, most options of the new receiver must be selected via the on-screen menu system. I doubt that new remote will last as long at the old one has.
Lastly, I will point out that the new receiver is the fourth Sony receiver that I have owned since the 1970's. None of the earlier Sony receivers ever broke or even had a knob come loose, so one can state with confidence that one never has to worry about the quality of workmanship or parts if it is made by Sony. Instead, you must be careful to purchase a model that has all the features you may desire or may need in the future.

Yeah, great features.
Easy set up. Lots of features. Excellent sound quality. So many things I didn't know
about digital audio. The on-line help guide is a great learning experience. This receiver is very versatile. Even after three weeks I find myself tweaking. Superb sound even with my "thirty-some" year old speakers. I like my new "toy".

Great sound. Great features. Minor flaws.
I bought this unit 3 weeks ago. Setup was very easy and I connected an Apple TV 4K, a Sony UHD Blu-ray player and an OLED LG TV. ARC works well.
I've been listening music from Spotify, Airplay and music files from the USB port. Haven't tried Chromecast and multizone yet.
So far I'm very happy with this receiver because of its great sound quality and many features.
I don't give it a 5 star punctuation because of the plastic quality of the remote control, specially the middle section which feels loose. Also is directional, meaning that you have to point at the receiver to operate it, unlike my TV, Sony Blu-ray, Apple TV and Directv receiver whose remotes can be pointed everywhere in the room to work them.
Besides, there could be audio-video sync issues that can't be resolved if audio lags behind the video because lag adjustments only allow to increase the audio lag.

Perfect for multizone
Using this for surround sound in living room and kitchen speakers works very well. We were told this product integrates better with our control system so we went with the recommendation and it works flawlessly. Better sound quality than our previous Denon.

Great A/V Receiver
I installed this in our family room to replace an aging Yamaha receiver. Setup was a breeze and I love the sound this thing produces definitely seems like a step up from my old receiver. I also love that I can power a completely separate rooms speakers through the zone 2 and control everything via the music app it really is convenient great job Sony!
