The results are nothing short of breathtaking, with the entire sound field seamlessly integrated for outstanding surround sound.

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.

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!

Mid range Price, ES Capabilities
Upgraded to a 4k x930d, so my str-da5500es (which I love) needed an upgrade. Looked at several "high end" receivers za5000es, Yamaha Aventage line, Onkyo, Denon etc. I went with the za810es primarily because of it's well rounded features and at Cyber Monday price. I don't need the Ethernet hub in my receiver but blutooth, airplay, Spotify and chromecast all built in work great, no more extras to plug in just to connect to the receiver. I do enjoy variety, the more option's on the back of the receiver the better, this one seemed pretty barren to me but really there are more connections than I needed or am using. So here's my setup;
xbox one x
apple tv
bose front and center speakers 8ohm
boston acoustic surround and surround back 8ohm
Yamaha active sub
(yes my speakers are the next to upgrade)
I connect all components using hdmi into receiver and tv into hdmi with arc (works perfectly). Easy setup, auto calibration worked incredibly well, phase matched the speakers no problem and set the crossover frequency on the first attempt. Already happy with my purchase as my older receiver never quite got the auto calibration right. Network setup was next and it was even easier of course once connected there's an update, 30 minutes later I begin checking all of my imputs and setting them to my taste. Hopper3 hd/sd looks just like they did plugged directly into tv, set audio to neural:x (which is DTS:X) all 7.1 speakers firing and the sound was crisp and immersive. ubp-x800 was next ran netflix, hulu, Ghostbusters 4k UHD bluray and 3D bluray. Again the video was just as good as pluged directly into the tv, the 4k bluray playback actually seemed to have smoother playback as I have had judder on some of the wide panning scenes before. I ran the same apps and discs on the xbox one x with the same wonderful results. In addition there's a 4k download (insects) that looked amazing; 4k, hdr, 60fps and spacial sound coming from everywhere. Apple TV ran flawlessly and looked even better as the receiver upped the 1080 output to 4k.This is where I started the music and playing with the different sound fields and fine tuning the EQ. Blutooth is simple to connect to as is Apple Airplay. Music is rich and full with plenty of thump. I was a little leary about the 810 from other reviews but the specs were at least what I was looking for and the price was just too good to pass up. This is definately a well rounded AV receiver with Sony's ES upper tier capabilities. I probably would have gone with a higher end receiver za3100es or za5000es if the connectivity options where in them - I'm glad for whatever reason they were left out, I saved a ton of money and am more than happy (even a little surprised) with the STR-ZA810ES. If I run into any issues I will update this review.

I have always liked the amplifier sections of sony's ES receivers. They drive bowers and Wilkins speakers very well. This receiver has a lot of bells and whistles that are useful such as Dolby Atmos. I would recommend this receiver for its easy set up and great sound.

Great receiver. Lacks mobile control
I got this through my work through our Sony dealer. It’s a great receiver and certainly powers my episode bookshelfs. The only thing I want is App control. It seems there are two IOS apps available but the ES Remote is for the higher end and the AV Reviever Remote is for the DA series. I would very much like this receiver to be added to either app or a new one created. This isn’t a low end product so I’d expect a little more control via phone

Design, sound, features are truly awesome.
Sirs: the sound and features of this product are quite remarkable. However, I have a problem with getting sound when running the Netflix app. Your support folks will not answer the phone, even after very long waits. I have yet to get an email answered. Your support needs improving or I would not recommend any Sony products. Dennis C

I bought this from an A/V shop, high end. They installed it. Worked for 3 weeks and then HDMI output would not work. Store replaced the unit and after 2 days, same problem I now have an Integra. Don't know if it was compatible with my LG TV or what, but I had problems. Store was outstanding service. Paulson's in Farmington Hills, MI

Seems alright but the IP control is very poorly implemented and completely undocumented.

Does not pass video
This receiver was purchased for a client to replace a non functional receiver in their home theater. I was looking forward to using a new product the Sony had designed for the CI channel. After hooking up the speakers and the sources, I powered up the unit. Much to my dismay there was sound but no video. I rechecked the connections. I verified the HDMI cables. I power cycled all devices. Still no video. Apparently this is not an AV receiver, it is merely an A receiver. Too bad. This looks like a nice piece on paper. It just does not deliver in the field.
