Sony STRZA1100ES review

It is a 7.2-channel model. Its power is 100W (8 ohms). It supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoding plus two phantom rear surround channels. There is 4K HDR compatibility 5-in/2-out HDMI flexibility with HDCP 2.2 support. The model is optimized especially for custom in-home integration, and system configuration - Seamless IP Control integration with the leading control systems. Music connect allows integrators to combine the power of an ES-grade multichannel sound system with the flexibility of today’s wireless multi-zone music systems. Sony STRZA1100ES

Sony STRZA1100ES pros & cons

Pros

  • High end is crisp without being overly bright and overpowering
  • Warm mid-ranges combine with thundering bass, negating the need for a subwoofer for me at least
  • Bass/Treble can be adjusted separately for front, center, surround, and surround rear

Cons

  • I only wish that the internal 31 band EQ that the system uses for setup could be made accessible like Yamaha (I think) did with a smartphone app
