ES AUDIO/VIDEO RECEIVER:

Elevated Performance for All

Renowned ES Quality

Redesigned with build quality in mind

*Image only applies to STR-AZ7000, STR-AZ5000ES, and STR-AZ3000.

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.

*Only applies to STR-AZ7000ES, STR-AZ5000ES, STR-AZ3000ES

Newly Designed 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 foot also contains additional ribs for increased rigidity and improved resonance control.

*Only applies to STR-AZ7000ES, STR-AZ5000ES, and STR-AZ3000ES.

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.

*Only applies to STR-AZ7000ES.

Refreshed Digital Circuit Board

Metal ES-grade frames both secure the circuit board and protect it from vibration caused by speaker sound pressure.

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.

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.

Buffer amp for DAC

A new DAC analog output filter circuit was designed utilizing a JFET input op-amp yielding a 20db 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.

Newly developed Sony exclusive integrated circuit

A Sony-exclusive integrated circuit was developed to improve all amplification functions.

New Capacitor for High Power

In order to increase the power, a new block capacitor was developed and the design of the power amplifier has changed. Based on our long experience in the development of sound quality capacitors, we also emphasized the selection of materials and manufacturing methods to create a component that satisfies us in terms of sound quality.

*Only applies to STR-AZ7000ES.

New large-capacity power transformer

In order to achieve high sound quality in the large power transformer, the core material of the power transformer has been re-selected to achieve high sound quality.

*Only applies to STR-AZ7000ES.

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.
