With soundbar-beating audio and input flexibility, the Pioneer VSX531 is your entry to truly immersive surround sound.

Top value cinema sound

Featuring both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound processors, the Pioneer VSX531 makes an ideal entry into the immersive world of High Definition surround sound. With 100w per channel, the VSX531 has the power to fill all but the largest rooms and makes even the best TV sound tinny by comparison.

Stream music from your mobile via Bluetooth
With a Bluetooth receiver built in, it's easy to enjoy your music from other devices. Pair with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC and wirelessly stream all your favourite music. With the possibility of streaming music services, such as Spotify, Deezer and Tidal, as well as your own music library, you get access to near unlimited music!

Advanced Sound Retriever for enhanced detail
Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) improves the dynamic response from compressed music sources, adding 'sparkle' to the sound and restoring the sound quality. Ideal for use with WMA, AAC and MP3 files played via disc or USB, ASR makes music sound more realistic than before.

Equipped for a 4K future
Although focused on value, the Pioneer VSX531 still has an eye for the future. Featuring the latest HDMI connections with support for HDCP 2.2, you can stream UltraHD video and it's ready for use with the exciting new range of 4K UHD Blu-ray players.

USB and multiple sockets
Also standard is a front-mounted USB socket. Plug in your USB device and you'll instantly be able to playback MP3, WMA and AAC music files. There are also four HDMI inputs, both optical and coaxial digital inputs, a range of audio and composite video connections and a headphone socket for private listening.

Easy set-up
Despite packing a lot of tech in, the VSX531 is easy to set-up and use. Pioneer's unique MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) system tunes the amplifier to the size of listening room and speaker placement, at the touch of a button. Phase Control technology means a cohesive sound between the speakers, wherever you choose to place them in the room.

Take your TV's sound to a new dimension, with the immersive Pioneer VSX531.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Sound & Value for Money Bought this to replace an old and faulty Onkyo AV receiver (of over 7 years). The Pioneer seems like a good replacement - the added BT function is very useful for streaming from Spotify. Overall sound seems to be good but I'm using the old Onkyo satellite speakers (and a Wharfedale sub) - maybe if I upgraded the main speakers then I would find the sound even better! Set up with the existing speakers was a breeze with the included mic. The only cons I think is that there doesn't seem to be a way of adjusting each channel (like I could with the Onkyo). Or maybe there is - I haven't looked through all the functions yet. In any case it's good receiver for the money - I think it's hard to beat at this price point!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from pioneer it is not bad but the passthrough feature is not very good, where as my onkyo would work on every hdmi this you have to set one channel if you set it to sky it will do that but if you want to play your bd player then you have to have the receiver switched on ,then you have to send the sound through the receiver which I don't want for late night viewing. if you set it to play last chanel you can then turn the receiver off and have the sound through the tv but then you have to turn the receiver on to get it to play sky. this is not exactly pass through as you are having to turn the receiver on to select the hdmi then you can turn it off. I wonder, do richer have an answer to this problem?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why are in-store sales less protected than online. I bought this amp to replace one i thought had broken. In fact it wasn't - dodgy lead instead - but was disappointed to discover that there's no refund offered for working product. If I'd had bought online I'd have got my money back with no questions asked which I thought was kind of odd. Now have problem/hassle of selling the thing on eBay!
