Half the size but fully featured - including a DAB radio and network streaming - the Pioneer VSXS520D is the do-it-all AV receiver for tight spaces.
With a height of just 70mm the Pioneer VSX-S520D is just half the height of typical AV receivers. This means that it fits where others simply won't go and, crucially, has room to keep cool. It also happens to be one of the cleanest and sleekest looking AV receivers on the market. A clear display is flanked by just a handful of controls for a minimalist style.Punchy performer
Despite its compact size, the VSXS520D compromises little when it comes to power. 80 watts per channel (at 4 ohms) gives plenty of power for all but the largest rooms. The power comes from a Class D amplifier that's not only powerful but cool running, too, making it ideal for this compact Pioneer. A further, unusual, benefit with this AV receiver is the powered subwoofer output. This lets you use a passive subwoofer although an active one can also be connected by the usual RCA sub output.Google Cast, AirPlay and Bluetooth
It's easy to stream music from your smartphone and tablet with Googlecast and AirPlay onboard. Link up wirelessly and stream your stored music or favourite music services using Google (Android) or iTunes (Apple) operating systems. For universal compatibility, including many laptops and PCs, Bluetooth wireless music streaming is also available.Wi-Fi, Tidal, Spotify and Internet radio for the complete networking experience
The VSXS520D also comes with Wi-Fi, Internet radio, Tidal and Spotify. Simply connect to your home network using an Ethernet connection or Wi-Fi and you can access thousands of Internet radio sites via tunein as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect and Tidal.Add a wireless speaker with FireConnect powered by Blackfire
Using the latest FireConnect by Blackfire technology it's possible to create a multi-room speaker system - wirelessly! Simply add compatible Pioneer wireless speakers and you can mirror what's playing on the main system in another room.DAB radio
Uniquely amongst AV receivers of its class, the Pioneer VSXS520D comes with a built-in DAB digital radio. This gives access to a wide range of stations and the benefit of hiss-free, digital radio. In addition to the DAB radio there's also an FM tuner for access to local and national stations via the analogue radio network.Spin your vinyl
If all this connectivity weren't enough, the VSX-S520D still works great as a hi-fi amp. Two line inputs and two digital connections are ample for most home entertainment systems. You can even plug in your turntable, thanks to the dedicated phono (MM) input - making a total of five inputs.Easy set-up
Despite packing a lot of tech in, the VSXS520D 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.
Streamline the style and not the performance, with the Pioneer VSXS520D.
