7 HDMI Inputs/2 Outputs

The STR-AZ7000ES has seven HDMI inputs with four inputs supporting full 8K & 4K/120 video sources, and two HDMI outputs that also support full 8K & 4K/120 video sources.

Newly Designed Frame Beam Base Chassis

The chassis of the ES model has been fundamentally revised: the overall thickness has been increased for improved rigidity, and the structures of the transformer base and other weight-bearing parts have also been redesigned to improve the instantaneous power and crispness of the sound, when compared to a conventional chassis.

Offset Screw Position Foot

Designed with an offset screw position to both eliminate the resonance point and avoid frequency-specific, vibration-inducing resonance transmission to and from the transformer, the new foot also contains additional ribs for increased rigidity and improved resonance control.

Updated Heat Sink

A more uniform shape applied to the heat sink enables the amplifier circuit to withstand unwanted vibration. The heat sink bracket also shields the digital circuit from radiation, for sound quality that has more stability and clarity.

Refreshed Digital Circuit Board

Metal ES-grade frames both secure the circuit board and protect it from vibration caused by speaker sound pressure. The varying fin length of the integrated heat sink reduces audible resonance uniformity while also shielding delicate circuitry from noise.

Redeveloped digital section

The new digital section enables all signal processing to be performed on a single chip while also providing lower impedance, increased capacitance, and better stability.

New DAC enables 32-bit operations

Digital PCM signal input is processed at 32-bit and converted to analog by the DAC, while DSD signal input during direct mode is natively input to the DAC and converted to an analog signal.

Improved analog power for DAC

The DAC analog power supply uses a low-noise power supply IC to ensure that hi-fidelity performance is achieved

Buffer amp for DAC

Buffer amp for DAC: A new DAC analog output filter circuit was designed utilizing a JFET and op-amp improvement in noise floor. The phase rotation was shifted to a higher frequency, expanding the bandwidth and improving sound clarity for wide-bandwidth sources like high-resolution audio.

Sony exclusive Pre-Amp integrated circuit

A Sony-exclusive integrated circuit was developed to improve all amplification functions of the STR-AZ7000ES. The pre-amp is independently connected to each individual amplifier channel, improving channel separation and reducing internal interference over more traditional cascading designs.

New Capacitor for High Power

To realize the power envisioned for the STR-AZ7000ES, we applied our decades of engineering expertise. In the development of a new power supply capacitor and redesigned power amplifier, we selected materials and manufacturing methods that would help achieve the pinnacle of sound quality for this premium model.

New large-capacity power transformer

In order to achieve high sound quality in the large power transformer for the STR-AZ7000ES, the core material of the power transformer has been re-selected and the bobbin re-designed for lower distortion.

Lead free ES solder

Applying years of sound engineering and testing experience, Sony has developed an ES-grade solder. A high-purity tin base combines with small amounts of specially chosen metal elements for a unique alloy mix that enables a quality signal and exceptional sound.

Hi-Res Audio & 360 Reality Audio

38 Hi-Res Audio & 360 Reality Audio Enjoy music the way the artists truly intended with High-Resolution Audio for crystal clear precision or discover a new way of listening with 360 Reality Audio for a truly immersive live concert or studio session experience.6 With the STR-AZ7000ES, your music comes to life like never before.
