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.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Value Not got all the bells and whistles, but everything you need for a surround sound system. Speakers sound so much better with this AV than my old Sony, also looks really cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounds so good Amp, solid performance. Great sounding Amp, solid bass and treble. Well built and sturdy also. The features are everything I want in an Amp, replaced a 17 old Kenwood but wanted Bluetooth to connect my Amazon Dot to and the sound is amazing. I have some old Goodman's Maxim 2 speakers that are great and provide Great sound for small speaker. I am sure there are amps of slot more expense give greater performance but remember you need the speakers/setup of same quality, for my speakers and set up this price amp is brilliant and gives outstanding performance for the money. So pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from vsx531 I have this amp set up in my home cinema with some Bose speakers and subwoofer, the sound quality is phenomenal and the setup was about as straight forward as it could be. I am particularly amazed with the value for money on this product as there are many functions including FM/AM radio. would highly recommend this to anyone who is in the market for a good sound system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value This is the 1st AV receiver / amplifier I have owned, and I chose it based on a great price offer from Richer Sounds over the Bank Holiday. For the money, I think it represents excellent value. As a 1st-time owner, I cannot compare it to other products, but I have been very impressed with its performance and ease of setup / use. The Bluetooth audio is especially useful. I have now got all my AV equipment tucked away in a cupboard in the next room, which makes my TV look nice and neat on the wall. I have it paired with Bose speakers, and am very pleased. The staff at Richer Sounds Eton were very helpful and friendly, both when I called to check if they had stock, and when I went to collect my order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what you would expect A great piece of kit. Upgraded from a Sony AV receiver that didn't support HDCP 2.2 or HDR pass through, meaning that I had to use lots of additional cables to optimise my video and audio quality. With this, I no longer have that problem, and as an additional bonus my other half doesn't struggle quite so much with getting everything working! The icing on the cake would have been to allow 4k video playback (or any video playback, for that matter) through the USB port, but I really can't complain based on price. An excellent choice to begin dabbling with a home cinema system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound with minimal experience needed From the excellent service in store to the unboxing, everything has been very straight-forward. The automatic sound setup using the mic was easy enough and got most things done. There are a few little tweaks you'll need to make to allow every feature to work, and the on-screen menu isn't the fanciest, but it is reasonably easy to navigate and understand. For the length of time you'll have to use the menu, it's really not an issue. The remote is very well labelled too. Now getting great crisp audio for all Blu-rays, regardless of if they're 5.1 or 7.1, or whichever version of Dolby is needed. Would happily recommend for those looking for their first A/V unit or looking to make the leap from just stereo TV speakers or any soundbar configuration. I'm using Tannoy TFX 5.1 speakers for this setup.
