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 Amazing sound and performance for a great price For years I had been running my audio through an old JVC hifi that I had since I was a teenager. It was old but it did the job. One day though this amp from Pioneer came up on an email from RicherSounds and I'm so glad that it did. For an entry level amp it's completely blown me away. It provides amazing 5.1 audio and has a host of HDMI connections as well as ARC functionality too. I now run this with 5 Mission bookshelf speakers and a Cambridge audio sub-woofer. Generally I leave it on the auto surround mode and it works perfectly. The sound and clarity is far far beyond anything I was getting from that old hifi. It was extremely easy to setup however the one bit I would point out for those using a sub-woofer, you are best off setting your main speakers to small rather than large. This ensures that the lower range frequency sounds go to the sub rather than the speakers. Highly recommend this amp, especially considering the money. Movies, music and general TV are all a pleasure to listen to now. Thanks again RicherSounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pioneer SVX531 I decided to buy this after the failure of an old Sony AVR. I am delighted with it`s proformance. Not as loud as my Yamaha, doesn`t have Atmos or DTS:X but great at all the other formats. Ideal for my man cave, teamed it up with some vintage speakers. Like most AVRs needs a bit of tweaking after the auto set up to get the best out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain!!! Great entry level amp. Replaced my old pioneer that was actually in hindsight too high speced. I did'nt need 7.1 and all the other extras. Ive only ever had 5.1 and this sounds exactly the same as my old vsx923 that was three times the price. It even comes with the mic and mcaaa feature which automaticly sets up your speakers for you. On top of this the reigate store allowed me into the store whilst they were closed dealing with their delivery - great customer service as i travellef quite far to see them. The six year warranty at less than £20 was also excellent value. Very happy customer thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't want for more! I haven't had an AV receiver for years but recently decided to setup a 5.1 surround system so decided to start here. I bought the Panasonic with some Q Acoustic speakers (will add the rears and the centre soon). This AV receiver is an excellent place to start and even this basic setup absolutely destroys the sound from the TV. So much so I am not certain what I have been thinking not sorting out the sound sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and gives me all the surround modes I reqire Bought this a couple of weeks ago and find it sounds really good. If you are not after Dolby Atmos, then you cant go wrong for the price.
