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 5 out of 5 by from All the features and sound needed for my setup Really enjoying the amp so far, plenty of options to get the sound you want and really like the auto-calibration so you can have it set up right for your unique speaker and room setup. Currently have it set up with two old MS814 floor-standing speakers and enjoying the sound so far. Next step is to add a subwoofer to my setup, sorry neighbors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound I bought this as my Yamaha Amp broke. This makes much better use of the surround, the sound and picture are fantastic. The menu/user interface for initial setup isn't so friendly and the instructions are rubbish. This is the only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple setup and great sound Such an easy setup with the supplied microphone. Makes surround sound perfect for where you sit no matter the speaker positions. Can't fault the sound although I am no expert. Used for movies and music.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value for money Good value for money but unfortunately the unit failed after only 1 days use. A replacement was found within 1 day from the Oxford store so very good after sales support

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good budget amp. Got this just before Xmas to go with new TV for surround sound experience. Easy to set up and sounds ok. Not the best sound but for under £200 its pretty good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good entry level pioneer av unit I purchased this online.So far it serves my 5.1 surround with good options to add others A little tricky getting the unit to get all speakers going. On the plus side it came with a mic to distribute the sound evenly.
